Essays of an equestrian
“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round and through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.”
Horses do not betray you, they portray you....

Dressage For The Rest Of Us!
This site is dedicated to those dressage enthusiasts who makeup the majority of the dressage world. The regular guys and gals of the dressage world and the bread and butter of the sport of Dressage.
Relevant to all equestrians, it contains useful information regarding the care and training of your horse along with helpful strategies to get through and cope with all the interesting personalities you'll meet in the horse world.
Although I am an amateur just like you, I know you'll find my essays helpful. Yes, I am an amateur in that I make my living in the outside world, but I've been lucky enough to gain knowledge and experience you might just find interesting.
lt is my intention to help my fellow ammies, and to bring a higher level of understanding, knowledge and sophistication to your equine experiences.
I still have tons to learn and I hope you join me on my learning adventure. Our continuing education benefits both us, and more importantly, our horses.
I encourage your thoughts and comments.
Please join me on our little adventure.
Buckle up, enjoy the ride.
