"The horse moved like a dancer, which is not surprising. A horse is a beautiful animal, but he is perhaps most remarkable because he moves as if he always hears music. . ." -Mark Helprin, A Winter's Tale . IN LOVE with this spellbinding image by Nicole Shultz @nicoleschultzphoto 📷 . I love listening to music when I ride, how about you?! Let me know your favorite type of music to enjoy in the saddle, and how do you think your horse likes it? 🎼🐴 . #musicandhorses #musicandhorselover #equestrian #equestrianlife #equestrianthoughts #equestrianhabits #equestriansofinstagram #braidedmane #browntack #greyhorsesofinstagram #greyhorselove #hunterbraids #equestrianphotography #equestrianphotographer #equinephotography #equinephotographer #equestrienne #equestriennedecor #poetryinmotion
This is what goes through my head every time I sit on a horse. I tend to forget to breathe though!! 😂😂 #horsequotes #equestrian #equestrianthoughts
Disagreements in the equestrian world. Let’s mention this guys. . There will always come a time where you will disagree with another rider. Whether this is about training, education, daily management, it WILL happen, and much more often than expected. . I, myself, regularly disagree with other professional trainers, even though we share the same values. You can have the exact same values, you can even come from the same background and take completely different (if not opposite) ways. . My message is: IT’S OK!! It’s Ok and normal to have a unique perspective on one topic. This is what being alive means! Thank God we’re different and bringing our own, unique views on the same thing. This is why we (could) learn so much from the others, if only we dared to listen and take (really take) the time to understand their ideas and techniques. . Disagree with someone does not mean that somebody’s right among us. I think there are factual, science-based facts that we cannot ignore: the Earth isn’t flat, but still, there are hundreds of thousands of people gathering together to prove the opposite, despite the crushing evidence that we have since decades. . Part of me thinks: what a pity, such an energy could be used more purposefully.. the other part thinks: well, good thing we live in a world where we’re free the question unquestionable! Even though I’m annoyed when I see really bad theories based on nothing, it’s the freedom that I cherish above all, to allow anyone to think and express itself freely. . Share your thoughts, ideas, if you’re invited to do so, and talk with others. Take this time to enrich yourself and grow. ————————— #horsemanship #inspirational #learning #learningfromothers #pony #dca #blog #nature #outdoors #twohearts #equestrian #equestrianthoughts #world
Sometimes we work so hard trying to realize our dream, that we believe it has to be difficult to be good. We believe we have to walk 1,000 miles down a gravel road on our knees. So that when someone comes along and asks, “but what do you have to show for it?” We can point to our scrapped knees, our ragged path, the dried tears that have carved paths through the dust and sweat on our cheeks, and reply, “See? No one could do more! No one could sacrifice more!” And in our effort to prove we’re worthy of some title, some praise, some medal that we can hang around our neck, we forget to see joy, to see beauty, to remember why we set out on this path in the first place. We forget to celebrate the steps, forget to celebrate the dedication, forget to celebrate ourselves. . Our culture has glorified the sacrifice of self to an end, but what is that end if not the original reflection of the most essential and innocent part of who we are: our heart? How will it feel to meet our end and find we’ve lost all sense of compassion and joy along the way? . We’re just people dotting the earth trying to make ourselves and our goals more important so we can calm that most devastating of critics: ourselves.  What if, instead, we took our power back? What if, instead, we said, “I am fulfilling my dream right now by walking a path lead by my heart and being present for all of it”? What if we were just satisfied with ourselves and when that critic came knocking, we turned towards joy and gratitude instead? . So, here’s to not taking my goal, myself, and my inner critic so seriously! Here’s to a rainbow 🌈 banded mane on a gorgeous horse who I get to ride and love and talk to every day. Here’s to remembering that tiny heart that in the quiet and still of the day beats out a rhythm of love for horses . . . #findingjoy  #equestrianthoughts  #followyourheart  #selfcompassion  #equestrianlifestyle  #rainbowmane  #dreamchasing  #heartforhorses  #twohearts  #showjumping
We have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse, should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back. . .🙏🏻🙏🏻 -Peter Gray . Everyday I am grateful to these animals for everything they give us. I truly don’t know what I would do without them. . Horses give us so many gifts - love, friendship, laughter, peace, strength, and a shoulder to cry on. . What’s the biggest gift a horse has given you? ♥️ .

The horse knows. He knows if you know. He also knows if you don’t know. . . 🖤 -Ray Hunt . One of my favorite quotes about horses that can be looked at on the surface and so, so much deeper. . . 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 .

🐴 ~ "Wir können einem Pferd nicht den Fluchtreflex nehmen - aber wir können lernen, ihn zu kontrollieren." {Yvonne Gutsche} 💕  Am Mittwoch hatte Borez mal wieder einen speziellen Tag 😶. Er war total verschmust, das genieße ich immer sehr, denn so oft macht er das nicht. So standen wir, wie auf dem 1. Bild, einfach 5 Minuten da und haben es genossen. Borez steigert sich sehrrrr schnell in Dinge hinein und macht aus bekannten Handlungen oder Dingen dann plötzlich etwas sehr Gefährliches. Diese Eigenschaft wird er bis an sein Lebensende nicht ablegen, doch genau das macht ihn besonders und gleichzeitig wird es nie langweilig 😅. Naja und als wir dann ganzzzz normal mit einem kleinen Eimer die Vorderhufe von außen gewaschen haben, war dies plötzlich sehr gefährlich. Borez hängt sich öfter ins Halfter, doch dieses mal war es stärker und das Halfter ist kaputt gegangen (2.Bild). Ich finde da kann man immer sehen, was für eine unglaubliche Kraft diese Tiere haben und welch ein Geschenk ihr großes Vertrauen ist. Es war, wie wenn Doni ihm sagen wollte: "Borez, mach kein Scheiß und bleib hier" 😂 so ist er ganz lieb stehen geblieben❤️ Wir 2 wollen hier nicht nur die schönen Momente teilen, sondern auch, wenn mal etwas schief geht, denn das gehört definitiv dazu. Niemand ist perfekt und jedem passieren mal Fehler. ❣️ ~ ❓Hat euer Pferd schonmal ein Halfter kaputt gemacht? ~ ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ #fluchtreflex #specialone #lovehim #equestrianthoughts #imperfection #failures #ponyliebe #wildone

Got to ride this lovely girl today 🌟 It’s been a year at least since I last sat on Layla, and my how she has changed!! She was a good challenge, and I can see how much work the students have put into her. Looking forward to learning more from this one 🐴  #horsesofinstagram #arabianhorse #equestrianthoughts #equestrianlife #equestrian #dressage #ride #horse #pony #arabian
“Your horse is a best friend, a listener, a partner, a teammate. Horses do not care about how many times you may come off, how covered in dirt you are, and at the end of the day: It doesn’t matter what color ribbon you got. Because it’s your horse that will be there for you, to love you, and cherish every moment with you, to talk to you, and to listen to you. . .” 🐴🐴🐴 -Unknown . What would we do without these creatures? What could possibly bring us so much joy, and at the same time, be the keeper of our deepest secrets?🙏🏻 .
