Some important points to begin with.

If your horse looks more proud, more elegant and beautiful, looks confident and happy, with softly bright knowing eyes after a training session or hack, then the time with your horse has been spent well.

No session should ever make a horse look broken in spirit, broken in the mind, or be broken in the body and your horse should never look diminished in spirit, angry, resentful, sad, depressed, afraid, stressed or extremely tired after a training session or hack.

If the horse is trained by force, force will be required to ride it.
