Q: My horse is pushy when leading. Can you help??
A: Yes! You have to make your horse understand that you are the boss. Your horse actually wants you to be in charge. S/he does not want that job. But his or her safety depends on you taking charge in a quiet, compassionate manner. To do this, every time your horse gets pushy when you are leading, turn your horse in a small circle to the right. This pushes your horse out of his or her space, just as a lead mare would do, and helps establish you as the leader. Never get angry or upset. Keep a deep inner calm and whenever your horse is too forward, turn the circle. You may have to do this once or a thousand times. One day or every day. But it will help.
When writing fiction, make a timeline for your characters.Few things take a reader out of a story more quickly than to have a character wake up, for example, on Wednesday morning, and later in the day it is Tuesday. (Unless you have a time travel story line!) The timeline can also help you keep track of all of your characters so you know where each of them are on any given day and time.
Winner of Best Horse-related book by The American Horse Publications and Best Romance by the International Equus Awards! At a competitive trail competition Cat Enright finds the body of one of the riders, which ultimately causes Cat to doubt her closest friends and neighbors. When hunky country music star Keith Carson saves Cat’s life, she struggles to remember details that can point her toward the killer––before the killer comes for her. Aided by her usual eclectic cast, including the (possibly) psychic mare, Sally Blue, Cat wins in the end, only to endanger what she loves the most.
