I watched a PBS special about horses. I learned two things. One of the things I learned is that horses aim to please. I did not know this and I wonder if this is true? The second thing I learned feels very true: horses just want to feel safe in their environment. I know this is true. Zum only bucks me off when he is in an environment where he feels panic and fear. So my goal with Zum is to keep introducing him to new objects so he builds his confidence. For my safety, I must ride him in safe places so he can feel calm.
