The way I work with a horse is understanding them before I even ask them of anything, and the same goes for the rider.
For best results, you've got to give a piece of you to the horse and let yourself become one with the horse, and that's what I teach you how to do or just your horse.
I have two-lesson horses, one is a spotted Tennessee Walker. He is 9 years old and has gone to 4-H State Horse Show multiple times and also gone to the southern regions in South Carolina and is a winner!
I have a 12-year-old quarter horse who can do anything (from light dressage, jumping, hunter, western pleasure, side saddle to bareback and bridleless).
