I don't know if I'm horseman but my opinion is that here is no method for becoming one. Every horse is unique and you need to adapt. Here is such a wide variation of situations that any method will not be able to work in every situation. When your asked Ray Hunt this question, he replied : THINK. Here is a lot of clinicians around and you may try to follow the one which is the most understable for you today. But remember the one who is the most expert about horses is the horse. So work with as many horses as you can and observe, remember and compare.
