To help the human become clearer in their thoughts, communication, and timing, I suggest asking themselves the 10 questions posed below. The answers will help clarify what, where, and when things may need refinement to better support the horse to be successful in what is asked of him.

1) Where (pick a specific point) are you going?

2) How fast do you want the horse to move there?

3) Did you "check in" with your horse and notice/address any initial distraction or concern before you asked for him to respond to your request?

4) How did you communicate specifically what you wanted from the horse?

5) Did he have ...
