Month two will be more about theory and helping you understand the timed release, restart and you patterns. These are the the exercises that help us understand how to keep our horses motivated to do the right thing and how to be a clear communicator. Being sure your commands are saying what you want them to say. Understanding these fully will give you the answers to how to teach your horse anything you want when applied with all of these 7 steps, your only job will be to continue to practice them, be slower and clearer with our pressure and better timing on our release, these things will never stop growing and advancing, it only takes understanding them and starting to apply them to get instant results, and your never ending journey starts there!
