Horses are extremely sensitive and intelligent creatures. It can take years of love and dedication to become a true horseman, but I think many people
can enjoy riding with the help of a good trainer. Find someone who has a 'packer' ( a horse that can put up with anybody-lol) and learn some basic
handling and seat skills. Be calm, relaxed and respectful around your mount. Olaru12 is right though.. don't inflate your skill level to get the job,
it can and most likely will, get you seriously injured. Even a very steady mount can become quite fractious, and it happens fast. The inexperienced
are shocked by the explosive raw power and speed a horse has when they spook. Yes they will know if you are scared or nervous. Depends on the horse
on how they will react. Most will just think... "Heeeheee hee..this guy doesn't know what he's doing, I'll just stop here for a bite of grass.. maybe
I will gallop over the hill first and come to an abrupt halt..THEN eat.. lol" Good luck and have fun. They are amazing and wonderful animals.

... I was just in one with this show, with some extras that claimed they could ride....but couldn't. Don't BS just to get the gig. The horse bump
isn't worth getting injured or injuring someone else.
olaru12..you were a stunt double in Mag 7??!! That is so Bad Ass! I can't wait to see this one.
Are you allowed to tell us some of the
'behind the scenes' happenings?
