I recommend 16 to most of my riders. However, maybe your’s is 12. Or 20… The number is not really that important. What is important is that you choose one and then stick to it. And what does this number represent?
Your number is the number of interactions you are committing to this month with your horse. Riding, lunging, groundwork or anything else in between!
Your number must work with your current schedule and lifestyle in order for you to really use this method. So if you can only manage 3 rides a week, perfect. 12 is your number. If you can fit 5 in, go you! 20 is your number. Having your number is important. What you then do with that number has the power to change everything…
Knowing your number in step 1. Creating a clear focus and intention for each of those numbers is step 2.
