I have a vision!

One where people allow their horses to graze while wearing their bridles (without getting weird looks from others).

A vision of loose nosebands, or none at all.

A vision of balanced riders with independent hands and legs, and horses moving freely forward and relaxed.

A vision of horses understanding with light aids and clear communication. Or even when they don’t understand, their human partner guides them with ease and confidence, instead of frustration or anger.

A vision of happy riders and happy horses, and everyone is actually enjoying themselves.

A vision of horses kept in herds in large natural pastures, not isolated from each other.

I believe we can have all of this and still jump, do dressage, and compete. We don’t have to choose between one or the other.

Because we are all in it for the same reasons: for the love of the horse.

This is my vision.

And I get the feeling if you’re reading this, it might be yours too.
