Sometimes I find that when I have a horse that is progressing very well, my expectations out pace his progress. Example: I am riding one of our colts and he is doing so well that I find myself wanting to ask new things of him too fast. I have to force myself to be patient and not out pace his learning abilities. This colt is very smart and reactive. I need to be careful to keep his training at a reasonable rate. If you are having trouble with your horse with something that he should know, back up and go back to basics for a while. One of our sayings... lower your expectations to lower your frustrations.
