When you have a level one horse

• Your horse comes to you, you don't have to "catch" him.
• His ground manners are great; he is willing, cooperative, calm, more confident, compliant, friendly and adaptable.
• He is easy to control; you don't have to use a bit to force him to stop or slow down.
• He is willing to move forward; you don't have to kick or use spurs.
• He stands quietly for saddling, and willingly picks up his feet for cleaning.
• His attitude toward you is positive and responsive rather than negative, moody or resistant.
• You can teach your horse to do new things because you understand how to communicate with him.
