Smarter than who?

Had a good recollection of my father this morning. He taught me,  among many other things, how to ride a horse on our farm when I was young.

He was fond of telling me, when the horse wouldn't do what I wanted,  "Joe, you gotta be smarter than the horse.". Calmly, leaning on a fence post, advising but not bailing me out.  " Be smarter than the horse."

And there are days and those words still encourage me.
