Riding a tense and temperamental horse is tough for even the most confident riders, let alone novice riders who are inexperienced and lack self-confidence. There are numerous things you must understand before embarking on the challenging but rewarding route of becoming a successful rider.
If your horse becomes a little spooked when riding, try not to make a big deal out of it. If you respond by scolding your horse or, worse, petting him and reassuring him that he’s fine, he’ll learn that his fright was understandable.
If you punish your horse by yanking on the reins or thrusting him, he will learn to associate periods of fear with physical pain, which will only make his situation worse. By striking him lightly and affectionately while also comforting your horse, you demonstrate to him that the circumstance was worth spooking at.
Instead, when your horse spooks, you must remain cool and ride boldly forward. If you’re nervous, you’ll only aggravate your horse’s rage. When your horse exhibits tense or agitated behavior, these suggestions are critical.
