Daley KA place to get to know your young horse..

Frequently we hear about a rider with a new horse, not long from the breaker, and not quite coping with that "get to know each other stage".   Often the riders are  established  competitors, perfectly comfortable with everything to do with training on the Menage, preparing for competitions, training days etc, but not all that experienced with the very green youngster, and not quite sure how to go about achieving that essential build up of trust and confidence. Sometimes this build up just doesn't happen. Often this is as a  result of some unpredictable incident that frightens either horse or rider, or both, and which is difficult to overcome. 

We believe there is a stage between the new horse arriving home from the breaker, and being ready to commence a  normal routine. In most  cases problems can be avoided if that first week or two can be in a situation where the rider is not alone, but with experienced help available. Not to ride the horse, but to be there to help and reassure.  Also it is imperative that the facilities are suitable. Not breaking facilities, but safe yards to mount, somewhere to lunge etc, and quiet safe places to ride.  Also the availability of an experienced person on an older schoolmaster horse to ride along with is invaluable.
