Do you want to know your horse’s body, mind, and spirit?
You have to know yours first.
It takes time, enjoy yourself, your horse will notice.
This all pertains to the art of horsemanship. For mere horse sport, and that is no small feat either, to be successful and maintain a sound horse, repeat above.
If you have “resources” and can discard a broken horse no judgements from me, only noting it’s not the art side of horses that spurs you on.
