Episode 62: This week's podcast continues explaining the levels
of training that horses go through. I describe the middle part of
horse training as boring…
Picture a bell curve. The beginning of the curve is the beginning of the horse's training. I call it elementary school and quite a few exciting things happen there; haltering, saddling, bridling & riding.
Then we get to the middle of the bell curve. Where the changes are subtle and the hours are long. The long, repetitive middle. Like Wednesday, everyday…if you don’t see the details.
I explain elementary school, high school and college using Presto, Willow, and Gabby as illustrations.
I explain what is really going on there in the middle and how it leads to the beautiful things we want at the end.
