What is Horsemanship? It is most simply defined as the art of riding, training and managing horses. This obviously encompasses every aspect of owning or caring for them, from nose to tail, inside and out, mentally, physically and emotionally.
Aside from the care and management, "Horsemanship" refers to 'the way you go about things. Here is the best definition I could come up with:
"...The Art of Gaining Compliance from the Horse without Bringing out his need for Self-Preservation (without troubling, confusing, scaring, blaming, offending, or hurting him)..."
I believe the saddles that we use influence the shape our young horses’ backs for the future. I see so many high shark finned withered, sway backed, muscle wasted horses and believe that most of that shape is cause by ill fitting saddles.
The Renegade ® Hoof Boot Is the result of this quest which lasted over three calendar years and consumed an estimated 20,000 "man hours" of development time, coupled with simultaneous "field testing" by over a dozen competition endurance-horse and rider teams covering thousands and thousands of training and competition miles on some of the most rugged terrain in the southwest.
