What is it? Why have it?
Horse-man-ship Mindset What is it and why have it?
The only difference between average and great is the mindset! Horsemanship mindset involves two minds in a blend to form one . This is a topic that gets a lot of attention in the business world and in professional athletics , but has not yet had the consideration in needs in the day to day handling of our horses.
My thought process or mindset is always focused on being in the moment and to stay aware of my clear mental picture. My clear mental picture is exactly what I want my horse to look , feel and act like !
This should be a continuous state of mind . It is not something that you should do when you think about it but rather train yourself to do this always so that it becomes a habit ! When this way of thinking is automatic for you then it is your best piece of equipment in communication with your horse and you can get them to do anything that is physically possible for them to do and the horse will gladly follow your direction.
