I’m looking for a horse at the minute and I am having to look through so many adverts to sift out suitable horses. I frequently want to give up! But perseverance is key. Not just in looking for a horse but in training a horse. Keep going, even when you think it might be easier to take a short cut, or lose your temper, or give up. Take a deep breath, see how far you’ve come, and keep on going. Horse not standing at mounting block? 5 minutes practice every day. Don’t try and do too much in one go, but don’t settle for something if it can be improved. Little and often, persevere, and you’ll get there eventually.
Teaching your horse a new movement? Just keep going, praise the small successes for both you and your horse. It will take a while, especially when building strength and muscle, but the outcome is worth it.
