Training the "Cluck" Response




I have recently been working with a rider who has had years of dressage training with some top trainers, and yet has been unable to get her draft cross mare truly in front of her leg. This rider was in the habit of pushing, driving, and digging her sharp spurs into her horse every stride to keep her moving. If she took her legs off for one stride, the horse would stop. This rider was definitely working harder than her horse. Sound familiar? If you have a horse that tries to teach you to do all the work, read on to find out how to fix this problem for good!
