every time you point your finger at the horse, at least three point back

my barn owners favorite phrase "look at the dirt, you'll be in the dirt". this helps me learn to keep my head up and look around when i'm riding.

I've learned a lot of important things over the years, but one of the most important is that after I lost my once-in-a-lifetime, I discovered that I wasn't such a good rider as I'd had a great horse.

A good horse is never a bad color (or breed).

It may have a pretty head but you need to look at the rest of the animal, too. You don't ride the head.

A good, willing attitude goes a lot farther than looks.

Don't anthropomorphize your horse. It's insulting to the horse to be compared to a human!

I would have to say that the most important thing that I've learned is to NEVER act out of anger. If you are upset with your horse about something, take a break or bring yourself under control before you ask the horse to do anything. A horse senses your emotions and if you act angry then often the horse will react to that emotion and become fearful or resistant upsetting you even more!
