When teaching horses, it is always easier to fix problems at the first sign of difficulty. I am sure you know that horses test us. They test us five times for every one time that we are aware of. If we miss the test, there is no make-up date. If we do not see the test or if we ignore the test, the same thing happens . . . we lose ground. If we lose enough ground, the relationship will fall out from under us and we will be at the mercy of our horse’s instincts.
