“The first 90 days isn’t necessarily about what you can get a horse to do. You’re setting his mindset up for the rest of his life. You’re giving him his attitude about being a performance horse for the rest of his life. He can hate it, or he can love it, that’s up to you. Some horses weren’t born to help somebody get a gold buckle, but most horses are willing to do what you want them to do.
