Mark Todd, a two-time Olympic gold medalist share how important is to bond with your horse. He had his fair share of success, he was inducted into the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame and was awarded New Zealand’s Sportsperson of the year. However, he wants people to understand that in order to win you must do more than just training a horse and riding well. You must create a real relationship with the horse based on solid trust and deep communication, said Todd!
According to his experience, it is pretty amazing to be able to have a partnership with a horse and to bring out the best in that horse. Being on a level where both rider and horse are perfect is a wonderful feeling.
Horses are capable animals, highly trainable but in order to get what you want from your horse, you must build a relationship with him. Teaching your horse to believe in himself and in his rider its one of the most important things. Having trust is what brings success!
