Discipline is the internal governance of the rider or trainer. This self-guidance isn’t rigid, intransigent or hollow. It is a gentle, hyper-engaged, and positive demeanor that projects steadiness and engenders trust. Combined with knowledge and experience, the disciplined rider/trainer can project groundedness, self-control, calmness, love and empathy.

Use a makeshift arena corner in a field, paddock or pasture to introduce friendly, intriguing spacial ‘elements’.
