If you could look inside your horse’s mind when he’s dealing with someone who isn’t a confident leader, the video below is what it would look like.
Horses thrive on having a confident leader to follow.
And if they don’t see you as a confident leader, they won’t follow or trust you.
Your horse should have full confidence that you are a worthy leader to follow and you have their best interest at heart.
And even though they may be scared or unsure about something, they will allow their self preservation instinct to step aside in order to do what you are asking.
The best way to improve your leadership is by gaining confidence.
And the best way to gain confidence is to boost your horsemanship knowledge.
