Speaker For The Horse

The third article in the Speaker For The Horse Series in now available. Unconscious Competence: The Memories of Riding is a 6,600 word article. Don’t let the title fool you. These memories are not about the past. These are the memories that determine a rider's competence. Understanding them provides insights to all sorts of riding-relevant things, like teaching and training success, plateaus in performance, and why some people seem to be able to train horses so quickly and easily. They can even help guide your choice of riding instructors. To get your copies of the first two articles of this series go to “Written By Bruce.”
