It is a good horse which never stumbles? i thought it just referred to a good horse. but my teacher said, this sentence means no horse is good enough that it never falls? what on earth?

I don't see any horse in this sentence. It's a proverb/methaphor: To be good at something you have to try new things. Sometimes you will fail and 'stumble'. Without trial (and sometimes) failure there can't be any experience. It's impossible to become a 'good horse' if you didn't stumble.
