Why you should count on your horse to do the counting
Clever Hans may not really have been able to do mathematics. But according to Angelo Telatin, the cognitive abilities of horses are perfectly adequate for learning to pick and adjust jumping distances. It takes some practice, but your horse can learn to shorten or lengthen his stride to fit a related distance without the intereference of your hands. Good news if you are one of those riders who could never see a distance anyway. Or if you feel bad about needing a strong bit to get your horse to "listen" when you jump. Or if you're fed up with watching high performance horses getting punched in the mouth on a short distance. Angelo Telatin explains how it works.
