"Connection is often misunderstood...."

"Connection is often misunderstood. The horse must be taught to go from the seat and leg to the hand for it to be correct. But some riders will try to force it by working their hands and arms to "work the horse's neck back and forth to achieve that lightness," which is incorrect." ~ Lilo Fore

There is something about the sight of a fallen horse.....

"There is something about the sight of a fallen horse that strikes one's heart in such a way, even for those who are not particularly a horse lover...the significance of something so sacred, powerful, beautiful, intoxicating as the horse...when a fallen horse is seen overcome by life's obstacles, fallen tears and a jolt to the heart and soul can never be prevented..." - Stephanie M Thorn
