A Horse Lover’s Manifesto: How to Ride and Stay in the Saddle
I will lead with soft hands.
I will adjust to fit the situation.
I will feel my horse and release at the right time, bringing me balance.
I will “think” by preparing and visualizing before I step up and step on.
I will ask my horse to respect me, not instill fear in him.
I will remember human fear is normal but not let it control me.
I will remember preparation releases courage.
I will make the wrong thing hard and the right thing easy.
I will remember my horse’s feet are in my hands.
I will slow down so he can learn quickly.
I will ride with my entire body in rhythm with his feet and legs.
I will watch my horse’s ears and eyes and let him speak to me.
I will be aware of the smallest try and the slightest change and reward it.
I will respect those riding with me.
I will challenge my horse and myself with intention and respect.
I will set my horse up for success.
I will put my horse’s needs before my own.
I will partner with my horse.
I will leave my pride on the ground before I step into the saddle.
I will enjoy the ride.
