In the saddle, riding with refinement, contact, precision, and collection. Finesse, or riding with precision and refinement, is the fourth Parelli Savvy, and the one that relates most directly to performance. Whether you’re an English or Western rider, developing an understanding of bit contact is essential to becoming a well-rounded, skilled horseman.
