Sometimes it’s easy to be patient “until.” Patient until you’re running out of time, patient until you think the horse should get it by now, patient until you’re tired, cold, hungry, sick of waiting.
Don’t get greedy with the horses efforts. Reward and acknowledge each try. It’s not about getting it done today, it’s about setting it up to be successful for their lifetime. If you don’t have the time or the patience, maybe today isn’t the day to work on it- go back inside and try another day. Don’t discount the damage that can be done with just one time of “making it happen.” It can set you back for days, weeks, maybe even the rest of their life. Take the time it takes and it will take less time.
