 It is what is so captivating when we watch horses at liberty, what gives them such grace and elegance. The goal of all horsemanship this feeling is exemplified by Buck Brannaman who says " Gentle in what you do, Firm in how you do it "

 Attending a clinic in Italy last December I had the great honor to meet him in person and watch him work his magic on every horse he came into contact with. Although on the surface it may seem far away from my classical background it is the lightness and energy of his horses combined with absolute contentment to be with him that drew my attention. After all good horsemanship is just good horsemanship and then you can wear whatever tack and outfit you like.
