The True Horseman

A good horse trainer isn’t a jockey or a bronc rider
A good horse trainer doesn’t just get the kinks, the ya-ya’s, the sillies out of a horse and install buttons. A request for this from a true horseman is an insult.

A good horse trainer is an artist- they work with a horse like a painter to canvas, where the horse contributes his own expression to the piece. They mold a mind into something calm and peaceful, a body into a gleaming work of art.

A good horse trainer doesn’t train on an assembly line. They see the unique needs of each individual. They are attached to the well-being, the inner being of each horse. They don’t send horses home without wondering about each one, how they’re doing, and whether they’re still thriving.
