Frightened Horses Caballos Asustados

“A painting left by a father created to remind us about the qualities and virtues of horsemanship.

Why would anyone want to frighten the children? What is to be gained?

A donkey is not the same as a horse, each are unique.

Many will only appreciate the painting from a distance but if we take time, see the details, finely created with a loving hand, we can see so much more”


  • A lovely reflection for any parent …
  • How – Are you asking in a way that makes sense to your horse?  Are your cues clear and consistent?
  • What – Is there something physically or mentally getting in the horse’s way?  Is he mentally and physically ready and able to do what is being asked of him? Do you have the skills to help your horse work through the situation or change the behaviour?
  • Why – Why does your horse have this behaviour? Is there physical pain? Does your tack fit properly? Has he been properly trained for this activity?  Does he or do you need more training?

Placing the fault on the horse, makes you feel that the situation is out of your control. You react from an emotional place becoming frustrated, angry or scared and are not able to step back to and take a clear look at the bigger picture.

caballos asustados

“Una pintura dejada por un padre creada para recordarnos las cualidades y virtudes de la equitación. ¿Por qué alguien querría asustar a los niños? ¿Qué se gana? Un burro no es lo mismo que un caballo, cada uno es único. solo apreciamos la pintura desde la distancia pero si nos tomamos el tiempo, vemos los detalles, finamente creados con una mano amorosa, podemos ver mucho más.”


Un hermoso reflejo para cualquier padre

¿Cómo? ¿Estás preguntando de una manera que tiene sentido para tu caballo? ¿Son sus señales claras y consistentes?


¿Hay algo físico o mental que se interponga en el camino del caballo? ¿Está mental y físicamente preparado y capaz de hacer lo que se le pide? ¿Tiene las habilidades para ayudar a su caballo a superar la situación o cambiar el comportamiento?

¿Por qué?

¿Por qué tu caballo tiene este comportamiento? ¿Hay dolor físico? ¿Su tachuela se ajusta correctamente? ¿Ha sido entrenado adecuadamente para esta actividad? ¿Necesita o necesita más capacitación?

Colocar la falla en el caballo te hace sentir que la situación está fuera de tu control. Reacciona desde un lugar emocional volviéndose frustrado, enojado o asustado y no puede retroceder y mirar claramente el panorama general.
