When things go wrong, do you ask yourself what you could have done differently?
– “I should have been better co-ordinated when I gave the aids for that transition”
– “I should have given a clearer explanation to my student for that arena movement”
or do you allow yourself to blame the mistake on others?
– “The person who used to own my horse taught them to run through transitions”
– “The student should have been listening to what I wanted”
It has been scientifically proven that if you have a ‘high internal locus of control’ (looking to yourself when things go wrong), you will be more likely to be successful as a rider and a horse riding instructor.
So . . . ask yourself . . . are you in control of your though process?
