I think its those 'trouble' horses that teach us the most, because you can't just follow a certain set of guidelines and produce the perfect animal. You have to learn to adapt to and be sensitive towards the animal while also playing leader. Its a great learning experience!
Yep! I fully agree, you can't use a one-size fits all approach. But that's what's so great.. you do really learn the animal inside and out and you can just come up with different ways on the spot to deal with a problem. It's cool!
Yeah Sky was a biiiig project, but he really changed me for the better.
I think what sets us apart is that we chose to listen, instead of barking commands at them and forcing them to do stuff. We gave them enough time but guided them through it.
All in all, the relationship with them is simply amazing too :)
