The concept of making the right easy and wrong thing hard is said a lot, and sounds like a nice catchphrase for smart natural horse people, however, really understanding it and being able to apply is very different than just saying it.

See things as a horse, understand a horse so you can do this, study the horse so you can understand them and treat a horse like a horse, not what we want a horse to be, not what we are told a horse should be, not what we see a horse as in movies and not what we wished our horse would be.

Science has shown us that at a quantum level, we are all connected; the foundation of transformational horsemanship is the search for that fusion as a felt understanding, the molecular and conscious connection between ourselves and our horses.

When you bring science and spirit together, you get correctness with connection. You have the mind, but you also have the heart. Bringing both together is the difference between simply riding and practicing horsemanship as art.
