Greetings!
Question 

What examples of careful observation have you experienced or witnessed in your horses, if any?

Answer 

Every flight animal that I have ever worked with has expressed to me "careful observation." It is clear to me that horses, antelope and certainly all of of the cervidae species rely upon careful observation in order to achieve one of the only two goals they have in life, one being survival. The second goal all flight animals possess is reproduction. It is clear that careful observation enhances their possibility to succeed in that area as well.

Dually Training Halter for Minis

I am a professional carriage driving trainer, and I have four Dually Halters , Purple, Green, Red and Black. Could not work without them. For example: a client just delivered two Minis that are not even halter broken [never told me that]. The Purple Dually halter is the only way to prevent one rearing and striking anything it can reach, with its front feet. Hopefully, they will be more civilized, in a few days.

MONTY'S CHALLENGE

Test yourself each week as I challenge you to answer the question below. I mean this. Sit down and write an answer. Don't wait for my answer next week. If you have been reading my Weekly Questions and Answers for the last six months, you should be in a position to do this. Send your answer to my team at:  askmonty@montyroberts.com  
 
Why should you bother? Because it will help you focus. There is probably a comparable question in your life that needs answering... or will be. If you can gain insight into how to go about answering a practical question that is loosely related to your problem, this exercise will help you answer your nagging question. Then read my answer. I want all of my students to learn to be better trainers than me.That's good for you and good for horses!
