Horses are notorious for being ‘fresh’ and ‘excitable’ on windy days.
These reactions are part of the reason that horses have evolved and are still alive in the twenty-first century. They have survived by being ‘on guard’ against predators as their sense of smell and hearing has been minimised by the wind.
Learn to look at the world through your horse’s eyes. Remember why your horse is ‘on guard’ on windy days so understand them, accept that they will behave differently and be ready!
If you are not confident to ride on these days, take the time to improve your ground work or lunging skills.
Live your passion and enjoy your horse,
