Personal training programs or approaches to a new horse, middle aged horse etc: To always start with a good foundation. To have him as soft and supple as he can be in all his manoeuvres before adding speed. Keeping him physically and mentally sound during his career.
Key approaches to troubleshooting some common training and horse problems within discipline: To have the horses needs first. Keep an eye on his mental approach to training. For example, does he still love his job? Or is the pressure of the competition getting to him? By giving him time off or just backing off the training at certain times to keep him in full concentration.
