So I have a young horse. I hear conflicting views on whether you should take your time with them and really solidify the foundations, building the horse’s confidence and your bond with each other steadily along the way; then people who say the young horse needs pushing and that it’s good to take them out and about to lots of new places and let them see the world as much as possible. What are everyone’s thoughts on this and why? Is there any difference between horses who start going on outings lots as 4yr olds vs lots for the first time as 8yr olds? Or pushing them mentally (not necessarily physically) as a youngster, vs taking it calm and confidence building and waiting for the more mentally taxing jobs until they’re a bit older?
