That's really good to hear! There are so many riders that think the only thing they need to direct a horse are the reins. It is frustrating to watch a rider yank a horse around by his mouth. It's no wonder why there are so many unruly horses. (sorry for the mini rant - lol)
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
