How Much Confidence/Respect/Understanding Is Transferable To Another Rider?
Julie asks, “How much confidence/respect/understanding is transferable to another rider? Specifically, when a horse is around the same 1 person 90% of the time, and the other 10% is made up of several riders that are inexperienced. For context, we take care of horses for absentee landowners. We have noticed the owners having issues with their horses that we thought we had gotten rid of months ago (barn/buddy sour, head tossing, heaviness, spooking, etc).” Get more horse training at http://carsonjames.com

My Horse Stumbles Constantly When We Go Riding. What Can I Do?
Emily says, " When I go ride, she will stumble with her front feet multiple times to the point where she often goes down on both front knees. This happens going downhill as well as on flat dirt trails and meadows (she is a mountain trail horse). I've almost gone over her nose a few times and it's jarring to both her and I as I try to help her stay up. My anxiety riding her has skyrocketed over the past few years because I'm always worried and with my guard up for it to happen. It sometimes happens multiple times in a 1-2 hour ride. Please help.

He is a lone horse at home but is fine around other horses when we get there, it’s just at the beginning of the ride that he loses his mind. What should I do?"
