Teenage horses

Just listening to David Lichman's podcast about teenage horses (4 years old). He is saying often about 30 rides in they decide that perhaps they have been too obliging. At 4 years old they start to realise how strong and powerful they are and decide suddenly that "actually no I don't think I will" ...

Really interesting!

He says it's easy to fix but you need to be ready for it and to notice it.

That is interesting - had heard that before but nice to have it validated by DL!! Rafiki is up to ride 33 and started to be a bit challenging...but she is way more than 4!!
