"Sometimes our self-consciousness gets in the way of our learning, whether we are teaching or being taught. It is important to be concerned with what we are actually doing and not with the 'impression' we are making. If we have any hope of striving for the Art of Horsemanship we need to be free of this feeling of self-consciousness and lose ourselves in the moment." JSR
"Training a horse is above all feeling and trying, according to what you feel, to help the horse and not to force him." Oliveira
"A horse will never tire of a rider who possesses both tact and sensitivity because he will never be pushed beyond his possibilities." Oliveira
"Technical knowledge is not enough. One must transcend techniques so that the art becomes an artless art, growing out of the unconscious." Daisetsu Suzuki
I’ve felt this in horses all my life, but I don’t think I realized how important it was to try to calm that inward part down. I was always working on the surface, both mentally and physically – not getting right down to the inside of the horse. No one is going to get this without it coming right out of the inside of themselves. The rest of it has to come from inside the horse. Mind, body and spirit is what we are talking about here.” Tom Dorrance
The important thing is to think about riding the horse straight out – between your hands and your legs. Have the life come straight through his body.” Tom Dorrance
"Young horses are like young children, they sometimes practice uncivilized behavior. Which if left unchecked may lead to serious dysfunction in later life." JSR
