Lets go to the fair with three screaming grandchildren wanting just one more ride or maybe if they could just get 2 more runs on the ski slope and you are done. You are hungry,tired and stressed out with company coming for dinner and the neighbor needing you to pick up their kid while you are coming home. When we as humans are done we start to shut down to sight,sound,smell and feel but somehow this is never supposed to happen with horses. When we as humans are overloaded,over exposed or over stimulated we naturally want to sleep and we seek quiet. We want food,soft music and an understanding ear. Horses are supposed to take on some kind of superpower like a Kawasaki dirt bike and ignore all physical feelings to please their master that they owe everything to. I approach the problem knowing that "training" is all about expanding the mental focus of the horse by just a few more moments if I can on a given day also considering that grandma just wants to go home and put her feet up. How do you do it and why?
