So, you can mix and match, but you need to make sure you understand what you are doing before you apply it to the horse. If you are not sure, you'll definitely send mixed messages.
Good point Solon. I think that's what I need to learn. I need to figure out what principles I'm trying to teach and then figure how to best teach them.
Oh, and an edit for my last post, my horse's accident didn't happen with the third trainer. Just wanted to make that clear.
