The “Big Picture” of Horsemanship

We all want to be better riders. We can picture ourselves riding confidently, our horse calm but responsive, as we canter through an open field, trot along a winding trail, soar over a brightly colored jump, or prance through the perfect leg yield.

But the truth is… it takes work to get those “great rides”! There is a lot that goes into being a great rider and horseman.

I would argue that this is part of the allure of riding… there is always something to learn.

We can improve how we ride, how we train and and relate to our horse, and how we care for them.

In today’s video, we are going to look at four of the big key parts of becoming a great rider.
