Lightness should be an immanent part of riding and being with your horse.
Lightness is not a mystical Neverland that you will find yourself in by an accident. Lightness is not something that you will be given you by your horse after 10 years of riding thoughtless rounds in the riding arena and wandering without any plan.
It’s a MUST, before any other goals can be achieved.
But it’s you who has to be light first! Not your horse.
You have to be light before you can even ask your horse for any kind of lightness.
Are your thoughts clear?
Are your intentions pure?
Are you filled with calmness and consciousness?
Do you feel that no matter what happens next second you will stay at peace with yourself, your horse and other people?
