Mitton offers riders more understanding on how humans affect horses and how horses, in turn, affect humans. She discusses the
Rider Training Scale, a guideline for correct riding, focusing on the riders position and its influence on the horse;
Horse Training Scale, a training guideline on how to correctly educate a horse while keeping the riders position in mind; and
Mindset Training Scale, a guideline for riders, coaches, and trainers to help them to understand and work through their personal issues.
Based on her personal experiences as an equestrian success and mindset coach, Mitton offers a valuable self-development tool in It Takes Two to Tango. It empowers the rider to take control and ownership of the riding and assist in finding a solid training foundation from which to build. She communicates that happy and confident riders, trainers, and coaches are better able to positively affect the training of horses and other riders, leading to a more enjoyable ride and safer encounter.
