Horsemanship, the art of riding, handling, and training horses. Origins and early history. From the 2nd millennium bce, and probably even earlier, the horse was employed as a riding animal by fierce nomadic peoples of central Asia. Good horsemanship requires that a rider control the animal’s direction, gait, and speed with maximum effectiveness and minimum efforts. One of these peoples, the Scythians were accomplished horsemen and used saddles. It is also likely that they realized the importance of a firm seat and were the first to devise a form of stirrup.
