Responses: Horsemanship; Art or Science?

Written by Amy 7th grade:

Horsemanship,

It’s both, because of this:

You have to know math in order to keep a horse, otherwise, financially you

would be broke, but spiritually, it is an art. You must feel the spiritual

bond of the horse, otherwise you will never enjoy the beauty of riding and

becoming one. You and the horse are a bond, a team, a herd. What some people

don’t get is that a horse is much more then an animal. (But animals are

beautiful and important people already aren’t they?)

Horses help people feel like they can do anything, people feel power when

they are with horses. But also what some people get confused with is that

horses are big animals, so they need to be controlled, show no mercy toward

them.

That’s sounds pretty stupid if you think about it. Horses are loving gentle

giants that are teaching people how to be disoplined and resourceful. (In my

case, horses are what get me outdoors.)

Horsemanship, you must think about the business, about also the horses. What

is your education on mathematics and spirituality on these powerful,

beautiful creatures.

That is what I think.
