There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse R.S. Surtees
Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see it.
The riders hands are not to control the horse but to feel the horses thoughts.
“To me, luxury is being with my horse, with no time pressures. A moment away from everything.” -unknown
In riding a horse… We borrow freedom
Not everyone can hear the silent language between a horse and rider, not everyone can trust their life with a 1200 lb animal, and not everyone has the guts, blood, sweat, tears, and dedication needed to be part of this world. But equestrians are no ordinary people and horses are no ordinary animals. The only ones who truly understand this world are the ones who are a part of it.
