Horseback riding has many disciplines, including dressage, show jumping, and . To really master the art of riding requires internal focus, discipline, and fitness.
The rider must develop inner awareness and mental balance as well as physical balance and fitness in order to be able to face all challenges. The best riders are like dancers: fluid, supple, strong, with a sense of rhythm, tempo, precision, and soft focus. Natural born riders have the “feel,” an inner quiet, a stillness, and intuition.
If there is a problem with the horse, the rider needs to look inside. Veteran riders know that most of the existing problems come from the rider/trainer and their failure to creatively train while staying quiet and unmoved, never getting angry. The horse is rarely at fault.
