Styles of Horsemanship
I used to think that there were styles of horsemanship, types, varied by something exogenous – some external variant, a piece of equipment, a type of horse, whatever. Now, I finally understand that horsemanship is horsemanship, there is no such thing as bad horsemanship, such a thing is simply not horsemanship at all.
Trust and Knowing
Do you trust your horse, do you know how well you can ride, do you know how your horse will react to external stimuli?
Contact – what exactly is it?
Are you using “too much contact”? The chances are that you are, most riders do, and without good reason.
