Here are a few training tips to keep in mind when you are schooling your horse:
If you use spurs, make sure you only use them at the moment you are asking, you don’t want your spur to be hitting your horse’s side with every stride.

Here is another training tip:
You want to achieve a steady rein connection and even contact with your horse’s mouth. This is an example of developing good communication with your horse. Your horse chewing the bit and a moist mouth are good signs of elastic contact.
