Self Carriage

“My horse and I were of one mind. It wasn’t about riding any longer. I had been given the opportunity to be the sweet spot, to be a place of nonresistance. It no longer mattered to me what task we were doing. We could experience unity anywhere, in any cadence, thought, or feel. The important concept that I had a glimpse of was that there was no force. But this did not mean we were passive. It meant mutual respect. It meant understanding life is a circle. Life is love. Not physical love or intellectual love, but love as in nonresistance. This is not about horses. This is horses teaching about life. Think Harmony and True Unity are what perfect practice means to me. I had been given the opportunity to be the sweet spot, to be a place of nonresistance.”
