I recently had the privilege of fence sitting (auditing) one of Ross Jacob’s clinics here in Victoria. My biggest take away from the clinic was to question everything any teacher or instructor tells you. As Ross says, never assume that what you have been told is correct, ask questions of your instructor and get them to explain themselves until you are satisfied. I think this is good advice, there are so many different explanations from offered by so many instructors it is very easy for riders to be left with conflicting ideas. If an instructor is unable to explain why they do things as they do there is a fair chance that they themselves only do it because it was told to them. I recommend anyone interested in horses check out Ross Jacobs at https://www.goodhorsemanship.com.au/. I had a great time at his clinic and I look forward to the chance to see him again.
