THREE PILLARS TO
SUCCESSFUL HORSEMANSHIP

I believe there are handful of foundational pillars that will be invaluable to your relationship with your horse. I find that without these concepts in place my students struggle. In this section I outline my philosophy of rewarding horsemanship by answering these questions.
Here are some questions to consider as you look through the Pillars:
  • Why horses?  What’s in it for you?  What’s in it for your horse? 
  • Good horsewomen and men are constantly managing the two omnipresent challenges of fear pressure and peer pressure.  How do you do it?
  • Can you approach everything you ask your horse to do with 6 ounces or less?  How do you get to that point?
  • Do you consider yourself perfect in your imperfection?  I can help you give yourself this gift.
  • What are your 10 basics of horse ownership?
THE THREE PILLARS
  1. The Path
  2. The Philosophy
  3. The Skills

To have good horsemanship you need to actively engage with all three pillars.


THE PATH
  • What’s your dream?
  • What’s your plan?
  • What could possibly go wrong?
  • Who should I get to help me?

THE PHILOSOPHY:
  • Put the relationship first.
  • Beware the obstacles of peer and fear pressure.
  • What’s my mindset?
  • Who am I?

THE SKILLS; WHAT YOU MUST LEARN
  • You must be able to stop and control your horse in the “oh no” situation, on the ground or in the saddle.
  • You have to stay on or be able to get off quickly if you need to.
  • You must know where your horses’s feet are if you want to get anything done.
  • You need to use gear that provides the most refined communication possible for your horse.
