Ian Francis' advice on training young horses: “Make the assumption he’ll be nice – make training easy for him- there is plenty of time to find out how hard it is later.” Ian's foundation training is based on getting a horse soft, supple and responsive so that he can be in the correct shape (or form) to perform a manouvre.
