The online magazine, Horses for Life, is a wonderfully fulfilling magazine. The photography is eye candy for the senses, the vision is clear and full of integrity, and the educational material is deep, open, and inspiring.
I would like to share a profound quote from a recent article on Nuno Oliveira, Conversations with a Master IV, by Stephanie Grant Milham. Please see http://www.horsesforlife.com to read the article.
Stephanie writes, “If someone were to ask me, “what is the greatest piece of advice you ever received from Nuno Oliveira?” I would probably answer with the quote we mentioned near the end of our last installment: “The most complicated airs of dressage are not difficult if they are tried on a mobile, light horse.”
“It is achieving this lightness and mobility that is the never-ending quest. If we also adhere to his philosophical ideas of kindness, love and respect for our horses, then the methods used to achieve these goals are equally important.”
