As riders, we are always learning. We learn new motor skills such as better ways to sit or how to use our aids riding. We also learn more about our horses, how to take care of them, how to train them, and how to understand their behavior. So here is an interesting question – how do you learn best?
We all make large commitments of our time and finances to learning, so why not spend a little time and effort making sure that learning sticks – that we remember the important information we take in.
There are four main learning styles. Visual learning is watching something – seeing the skill you want to perform or the information you need. Auditory learning is listening or speaking, such as hearing as your riding instructor gives you advice and asking questions. Read/write learners learn best doing just that – reading or recording information. Finally, kinesthetic learners learn by doing.
Although most of us are stronger in one learning style, information will be better remembered if we interact with it in multiple ways. In today’s video, I give you an example of four steps you can take to better remember what you learn in a riding lesson.
