THE WRIGHT STUFF

20130218-190751.jpg

Common advice from knowledgeable horse trainers includes the adage, “If the horse you’re riding dies, get off.”

Seems simple enough, yet, in the education business, we don’t always follow that advice. Instead, we often choose from an array of other alternatives which include:

1. Buying a stronger whip.

2. Trying a new bit or bridle.

3. Switching riders.

4. Moving the horse to a new location.

5. Riding the horse for longer periods of time.

6. Saying things like this … “This is the way we’ve always ridden the horse.”

7. Appointing a committee to study the horse.

8. Arranging to visit other sites where they ride dead horses more efficiently.

9. Increasing the standards for riding dead horses.

10. Creating a test for measuring our riding ability.

11. Comparing how we’re riding now with how we did ten or twenty years ago.

12. Complaining about the state of horses.
