Tip/Quote of the Day # 897

Horses don't generalize as easy as humans do. When we teach the horse something new, he doesn't easily apply that knowledge to other situations. You have to consciously show him how to apply it elsewhere. For example when you teach a horse to move off of your right leg, he doesn't automatically understand how to move off of your left leg. And just because he gets comfortable crossing one water jump, doesn't mean the next one is automatically safe in his mind. You may have to expose him to many different water situations before he may decide that all water is ok.
