Our Motto: Put your heart in your hand.
Your hands tell the horse who you are through your rhythm, feel, timing, and balance. Your hands communicate to your horse what is in your heart. When we have light hands it causes us to be light throughout our whole body, even the mind. Our hands are special instruments. Everything from a piano concerto to brain surgery are performed with precise human dexterity. The eyes are said to be windows to the soul but the hands are directly connected to the heart. We can’t be impatient, angry or aggressive and still have light hands. But when we consciously and deliberately lighten our hands our heart and entire being follows. Horses respond positively to hands that speak with certainty and kindness from the heart.
So remember the next time you are inclined to turn up the pressure, first try softening your hands. You just might be surprised at the result.
Our favorite quotes:

And God took a handful of southerly wind blew his breath upon it, and created the horse. -Author unknown
