The art of riding helps us to remember to be in this very moment, aware of the rhythm of each step and every breath. It is balancing between holding on and letting go.
Learning horsemanship requires development of our own compassion, patience, awareness, forgiveness, confidence, and responsibility.
In adopting an attitude of awareness of our own minds and bodies, we can develop compassion through our interactions with other creatures. Horsemanship demonstrates how small actions can have significant impact.
