From a lecture by Harry Palmer



"Do not let what you are get in the way of what you can become".



"The bit is only as severe as the rider's hands." - Kristin Herman, owner/manager of Coventry Equestrian Center and my favorite all-time dressage instructor!

"Push, don't pull" - K.
"To get your horse on the bit, keep a straight line elbow to bit, put your hands out of the pit - K
Stretching quote: The horse is still in a frame just with a longer rein - K.

One of my "trigger phrases" - a thought with a purpose - a "training moment" is, of course, every moment you are riding.
The task ahead is never as great as the Power behind. -unknown
