Tip/Quote of the Day # 919

When horses carry tension in their back, it usually shows up one of these two ways: Either the tension incites their flight response, and they want to rush, rush, rush…. or because they don't like the way their bodies feel they become "stuck," and it becomes very difficult to get and keep the horse in front of your leg. Dissipate the tension and get the horse's back happily swinging, and the nervous, rushy horse relaxes into an even rhythm, and the "stuck" horse will begin to go happily forward.
