What sets a true horseman apart?

You do not have to be a super athlete to ride well. And you do not have to be a genius to train a horse well, either.
There are some very successful horsemen who are short and fat with no more athletic ability or brain power than the next guy.
So, what sets these successful horsemen apart?
A strong desire to succeed and an acute awareness of what they are doing.
The big “success factor” here is the awareness of what they are doing and the ability to change when they discover they’re doing something wrong.
This “awareness and ability to change” is so important it can’t be stressed enough.

  1. Hey, thank you for using the picture of my stallion Customized Crome. I agree with your words about the "awareness and ability to change". And thank you to Tom Hautmann, the person who took this foto.
    Best regards, Susanne Schnell

  2. Thank you for your comment! Although I was not aware that this was your stallion I picked this picture because I love his low clean style of stopping. Yes, that picture is amazing!

    I took the liberty of looking up his bloodlines-they are amazing!!- Do you stand him to outside mares by chance(AI unless you live in Idaho)?! I may be interested in a breeding if you do.
