    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.
