Horsemanship - Why Learn To Ride?
Too many people realize the importance of proper riding technique only after they have had their first accident.
The Informed Horsemen
Good horsemanship may be partly defined as the rider's ability to control his horse—any horse under any circumstances—in such a way that he appears to be a part of the horse's anatomy.
Qualities Of Horsemanship
While it is true that but a few become outstanding riders, especially with the limited time the average person can allow for recreation, it is equally true that anybody can learn to ride ordinary horses safely and with confidence.
The Horseman's Progress
When we are reminded of the main objective, which is the easy control of the horse, it becomes obvious that the rider must learn how to use his aids.
Horsemanship - The Aids
The safety of this type of horseman and the fact that he can get away with a ride on the trail at all depend on some-one's selecting a horse for him that needs little or no guiding.
Horsemanship - The Auxiliary Aids
The running martingale is easier on the horse and consequently safer than the curb for the inexperienced horseman.
Horsemanship - Applied Use Of The Aids
Before a beginner goes out on the trails he must know how to turn his horse, how to stop him, how to put him in motion, how to obtain and maintain the gait he wants.
Horsemanship - Canter And Gallop
A glance at the horseman's seat at a canter will always tell the whole story about his ability and skill.
Horsemanship - The Bolting Horse
They seem unwilling to recognize the fact that a really skilled horseman never lets a horse run away with him.
