1) The method must be safe for you. If you even suspect that you might get hurt or worse, end up in the hospital, it’s the wrong method! You do not have to have years of experience with horses to have common sense. Most horses do not mean to hurt us. They are big and strong and when frightened or left with no options to flee, might not be able to help it. Whether a free horse or million dollar show horse, each can inflict the same damage. Neither is worth a hospital visit or your life. The techniques you choose should insure your safety. Accidents can happen, but you can minimize the risks you take. Always listen to your gut, regardless of the credentials of the person giving you advice!

Lots of space is very important. horses like to roam. They want to be wandering up and down the ranch. Though they may be confined for feeding or rest, they mostly want to be roaming the ranch. If you have a small area, they can’t be able to roam a lot and will be quite depressed. Again, a large space will mean they can be able to graze well. Though you may occasionally supply hay, it is recommended that you give them the opportunity to graze. Lastly, the availability of space means they can be able to exercise their bodies.
From beginner to professional it is important to know the parts of the equestrian saddle and understand the terminology used when talking about them. Even a small amount of knowledge can help, for example learning how to mount and dismount or even when performing advanced dressage movements.
Finding the right trainer can take some time. Don’t hesitate to keep looking if you don’t find someone that clicks for you. Learning dressage as with anything is best taught by someone you enjoy being with, someone that can make it fun and interesting and someone you feel you trust.
