HORSES are super sensitive to the rider’s mood. Therefore, we shouldn’t ride under stress or when we don’t have the time it takes. If you have a bad day, or if it’s like here today – a heat wave of 34 degrees and hot sun, give the horse a rest day or go for some relaxing grazing; don’t work in the arena. The horse will just mirror the rider’s mood, stress or heat in any way.
