Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 27

What is softness in a horse? Is it just flexion in the poll or is there more to it than that. Tom Curtin discusses his ideas about softness and how he goes about asking a horse to round and get soft from both ends. In addition to the use of the reins and hands Tom discusses how he uses his legs, seat and feet to encourage softness. Tom offers insight on how to tell if your horse is truly soft and talks about how being soft feels to the horse.
