The importance of holistically desensitising a horse to the saddle and giving it time and space is based on several considerations:

Safety for both rider and horse: A thorough desensitisation process helps to reduce anxiety and stress in the horse, promoting safety for both rider and horse. By approaching the horse holistically, potential sources of anxiety or fear are addressed, making the horse more confident and less prone to unpredictable behaviour.

Building trust: The desensitisation process helps to build a strong bond of trust between rider and horse. By familiarising the horse with different stimuli, it learns that the rider is a safe and reliable guide. This trust is essential for successful riding.

Physical and mental preparation: Allowing time and space during the desensitisation process allows the horse to learn at its own pace and adapt to new situations. This is essential for developing the physical and mental strength needed to carry the rider's weight and meet the challenges of riding.

Lasting results: By desensitising the horse in a holistic way and giving it sufficient time and space, sustainable results are achieved. The horse not only develops the necessary skills to function comfortably under the saddle, but also maintains a positive attitude to work, laying the foundation for a long and successful riding career.

In summary, holistically desensitising a horse to the saddle and taking the time to go through this process are essential steps in fostering a strong and secure relationship between rider and horse, as well as achieving lasting results in the horse's training.
