Welcome To Cooler Horsemanship
Horsemanship is truly a unique endeavor.

It challenges us to seek a new way of thinking that are the keys to opening new doors between horse and human.

Like any other craft – horsemanship takes dedication to get to the fun part.

Because of this, I’ve always felt extremely lucky to have horsemanship come into my life at a young age.

Time was on my side and I wasn’t too afraid of making mistakes.

It also allowed me to accept that your ability as a horseman has to be earned.

Over the years I realized that a lot of people come into horsemanship either later in life than I was fortunate to or with an issue that is overwhelming to them.

Often times both.

They got excited when they first saw some of the results that can be achieved in high levels of horsemanship.

Unfortunately, to be honest, it is also very easy to underestimate the effort that goes into it those results.  

But achieving a high level of horsemanship and becoming an accomplished horseman is an experience that far outweighs the effort.

I’ve seen people who couldn’t fully embrace this idea, and horsemanship turned out to be a disappointment for them.

That’s how it is in everything in life.  

It’s common sense that it hardly ever pays to look for a short cut.

But that doesn’t mean your desire to become a horseman can’t be accelerated.  

Growth in horsemanship comes from three things:

  • Finding Someone Who Can Teach You
  • ​Learning From Books and Videos
  • ​Practicing On Your Own

It’s easy to accomplish the first two.

The third is obviously different because that’s where we go from learning ideas and things to do in theory, to being hands on and required to think it real time.

This brings up two important points:

  • Mistakes are going to happen.  It's how you handle them that determine the rate of progress you make
  • ​Learning when to make certain decisions and putting them into practice in response to whatever a horse is doing is where most people feel overwhelmed in the beginning.

We know this because we’ve been through it and have coached others through it time and time again.  

Which is why we have such an appreciation and drive for helping people who are willing to put the effort in.

Once we see that motivation, it sparks a fire inside of us that says, “I can see where you are, where you want to go and how you can get there.”

There’s nothing more rewarding than helping people lift the fog of confusion and haze of feeling overwhelmed with where to start.

Every time we help a student of horsemanship avoid repeating mistakes that would cost valuable time and slowly deteriorate their morale, it makes all the long hours within our own horsemanship journey mean that much more.

To see someone shed their doubts and fears and accelerate their success is one of the biggest reasons I pursued a life with horses and horsemanship.

It takes a unique blend of determination, courage, and humility.  

If a true desire to become the best horseman you can for your horse is what drives you, then you’re what drives us.
