Want to make a huge difference in your riding? Here are the 100 things your horse wants to you know. Whether you hack out for pleasure, showjump, event or compete in dressage, this app will help you understand your horses perspective and improve your riding skills. Perfect for when you are planning a training session with your horse!

-Be smooth & efficient, not quick.
-Some people try to push the horse through things. Instead start from where the horse is at.
-Don‘t let the horse learn he is stronger than you.
-With a youngster, don‘t be critical.
-Let the horse move his feet if he needs to, but do it in a useful way.
-Bring the horse to the mounting block, not the mounting block to the horse.
-Don’t make the horse canter. Just get him ready to canter.
-If you relax when you ask, the horse will relax when they respond.
-You can’t collect a horse with his poll lower than his withers. That will cripple a horse after a while.
People can have a lot of experience but not a lot of knowledge. Old age can get there before wisdom.
-You will spend your time better working with your horse, than cleaning him up. At the end of the month it’s better to have a better riding horse than a shiny tail.
-You shouldn’t be peddling your horse with your legs. If you are, after a while you’ll have to get off and walk for a walk to get a rest.
-Handfeeding isn’t loving your horse. Direction and guidance is loving your horse. Otherwise they can start to see you as their waiter!
-Get him ready to do it. The horse will take care of doing it.
-When you turn them out good, they come back in better. When you turn them out bad, they come back in worse. They don’t learn any more but they get more sure about it.
-If you are on the right path, you are only going to get better.
-The best riders are usually the best students who listen, try and practise.

    I thought this might be a list of things a horse would want. Instead it is a list of a lot of things that every horse person SHOULD know.

    Has a few things right, keeping it for small reminders. I think that this is more for western riders than dressage or show jumpers. And in stead of FQ, Im thinking you are meaning Fore Hand not like HQ (Hind Quarters)

    Such a awful app. Have not seen such a bad app. Does not provide any details such as vaccines, appointments etc. Waste of time. Instead I have got a good app called "Gallops" which helps me out to know more about my horse n also allows me find a vet aro

    This app gives you loads of little ideas. I thought some of them were easier to understand than others but maybe that's just me. I'll be getting my fist horse soon and I think I'll come back to this time and time again and get different things out of it i
