Horsemanship is the “riding, training, and management of horses.” As horsemen and women we should know our horses from the inside out. Start with proper feed and learn their bodies. Too much feed or too little could harm your horse and you should seek help if you do not understand or unsure of feed for your horse. Farrier work and understanding their feet is key without this or improper care of your horses feet can be detrimental to them and could be costly to try to fix. There is more to horses than just feed and feet but for now lets focus on training. When riding or teaching we should know how our horses move so that we can better train them, without undo force. A properly balanced horse and rider can help the horse use itself to the best of their ability. Horses are professional athletes and with the proper care and training they can and will perform for you.
