This is what we'll be talking about 👇

No horse wants to be tense.

There’s no “healthy” level of tension in a horse. To me, tension is always negative.

Yet visit a random horse show, no matter the level, and nearly every sporthorse seems to be tense.

Why? It means that parts in a horse’s education were skipped, parts that they need to understand our challenging human environment.

Parts that if left unaddressed, will cause tension, anxiety, and stress, often shown through behavioral problems like bolting, biting, and spooking.

But what are those parts in their education?

And how can we change the industry in the horse’s interest?
