The Trick

The trick to good horsemanship is to love and want the best for your horse more than you love being comfortable, being right, and looking good. To put the well-being of your horse above ego, above grudges, above shallow goals and above our own pleasures.

That is a lifelong goal for me. If we are honest, and really open to self critique, we’ll find those moments where we aren’t our best and learn from them. I am constantly learning about myself, through the horse; and grateful for the opportunity to awaken and care as selflessly as I am able to for my horses.
