Your thoughts and actions when your rides go well and alternatively when things don’t go to plan, are valuable. Journaling these emotional waves will help you better assess whether you’re on the right path with your horse.
Writing down the highs and lows that you experience with your horse on the ground or whilst training can be highly therapeutic and beneficial in the future.
Your training can always be improved by monitoring what is working and what is not – if you don’t record these little details then you are missing out. Your horse is missing out too!
Equus Note App is an online journal for your iPhone that keeps track of your equestrian experiences and helps you achieve your goals.
Journaling each day helps you understand your horse better. Is he getting fitter, softer, more supple? Is he feeling stiffer, resisting the bit more, panicking when he is ridden in company, or improving? How was today’s hack? Did he have an emotional breakthrough? Did his jumping session degenerate when you pushed him just a little bit further?
You don’t want to make the same mistakes that you’ve made in the past. But it is easy to make them… do you know why? Because without a journal that records your progress, you aren’t arriving at the hidden lessons that your horse is teaching you, and you can only get to them through writing them down as soon as they happen.
Keeping track of even the smallest details of your training schedule via your journal, will assist you in seeing patterns that can be improved on.
If you share the ownership of your horse with another person, or even ride in a team – you can share the daily progress of his training, his feed schedule, or even just his general health so that everyone understands how the things went that day, that hour, that second.
Equus Note is an online journal that records your memories, your emotions, your highs and your lows.
Because Equus Note is on your phone, there is no need to wait until you get home. You can write down important ideas and goals to work towards in real-time.
