Stay positive


By Reese Koffler Stanfield, USDF gold medalist, FEI-certified instructor, owner of Maplecrest Farm

The best way to improve your riding is to always be positive when you’re working with your horse. Horses are extremely sensitive animals; if you are stressed they feel it and react accordingly, so say bye-bye to the stresses of the day before you head for the barn. More than likely, things will look much brighter after a good ride.
