What are the qualities of a horseman?
As someone who is seeking what’s best for your horse, you’d probably agree that there are a lot of trainers in the world, but few horsemen.
So what’s the difference?
I’ve touched on this subject many times in my articles but, in a nutshell, a horseman is flexible in his approach to horses, and will put the horse first despite peer pressure, ego, and counter-productive emotions.
A horseman understands and takes to heart that any “issue” with a horse is usually not about the horse at all; rather, it’s about what the horse is reflecting back to you.
