This struck a chord with me.
Walking my dogs along a bridle path at the weekend I came across a young rider on a young horse.
The horse had come to an open gate. But the horse wasn’t going to budge. The problem? A small blue pipe covering some cabling on the ground was enough to make the horse hesitant (well, a lot more than that).
So it just goes to show – don’t wrap your horse up in cotton wool. Here’s what Warren sent in:
“Flop straps on your saddle, let your stirrups bounce around, clatter buckets about – be a clumsy oaf…on purpose. Get your horse used to the fact it’s not all meadows out there.”
