Knowing two methods to train a horse to make a particular movement or work in a certain way is better than knowing only one – but even if you know 20 methods, this still may not be enough to train every horse you encounter, or solve every training problem with one horse. Using the same approaches will get the same results.
Not noticing a mistake will always be the worst pitfall you can fall into – but don’t be afraid of making a mistake. Once the mistake has been recognised, then you only have to find out what you need to do differently to resolve it and progress.
Different trainers will provide you with new solutions to each of your training and riding challenges.
