This is another great insight into horse psychology from Richard Maxwell. It's amazing how some of the big issues have simple solutions! Fino is a 15 year old, so his spooky response to strange objects is well established. First Richard asks Becky to ride him past an obstacle in order to assess his sensitivity. Then Richard explains the 'three strikes and you're out' rule and points out where we usually go wrong. Nuisance behaviour can easily become dangerous at a competition, or at home. Richard uses 'kidology' to show Fino how to control his emotions better. Softness, praise and release is the key, which can be practised in the safely of your school.
