Here’s What You Need To Know About Becoming An Incredible Horseman...

Updated: Aug 31, 2022

Here’s what you need to know about becoming an incredible horseman/woman like Ray Hunt, Tom Dorrance and Tammy Pate… it all begins with the basics of great horsemanship.

These heroes in the horse world didn’t become known for their amazing abilities horseback, their ability to connect with their horse partners, and their massive success in the industry by skipping past the basics, and not mastering the fundamentals of horsemanship!

Advanced horsemanship is simply the basics of horsemanship refined over time through consistent time spent in the saddle.

You, too, can become an incredible horseman/woman by spending the time and effort dedicated to horsemanship and starting with the basics. A strong foundation is the best place to build from!

Back in the day, how handy you were with a horse largely depended on how handy your family and neighbours were. Back then, people didn’t travel around as much as they do today. So, where you acquired your knowledge and skill was limited to who you were around daily. If you were lucky, you had good teachers, but if your circle lacked talent, then you were at a disadvantage from the start. Some folks could rise above that and become great hands through applying their own theory, trial & error, and listening to the horse. But that was not always the case.

Now with your phone or computer, you can acquire the knowledge that, in the past, only a lucky few were able to attain. Now what you do with it is up to you. Seeking and finding the information is only half of the equation, implementing it is the other half. It's in the implementation that the magic happens.

As much as I believe there were some outstanding hands in the days gone by, I believe there are even more great hands today than ever. Because of the accessibility of the knowledge of those who came before them.

If you'd like to begin that journey to mastery with us, you can join me in Course #1 - Introduction To Keith Stewart Horsemanship. In Course #1, I teach the basics of horsemanship that you will then refine over time. Over 25 modules we will cover everything from proper bridling and saddling (yes, there is a correct way) all the way to soft feels, riding positions, and communicating effectively with your horse.

Once you’ve completed Course #1, you will have the tools you need to ride with confidence and build a solid foundation of horsemanship.
