The Vatnsleysa riding style

"It has always been our guiding principal that young horses should stay joyful. The better foundation you lay when you first start them,
the better they will do later on. You have to take care not to do too much at once and that they do not tire and stop enjoying what they are doing.
This, you reap as you sow and soon the youngsters start to do their best to please the rider on a basis of equality. A tired youngster
will not become a happy horse. Therefore, starting a young horse means--in the same way as with children--that they should do their best
of their own will, because forcing them does not help at all. It is important, though, that you are always the boss and the leader,
and that you appreciate the individual for what he is worth and treat him as a friend and a partner. That gives the best results."
