🐴 ~ Some moments are nice, some are nicer,  some are even worth writing about.💫 ~ {Charles Bukowski}  Those magic moments... When your heart is full of love, which you can feel forever❣️ .  Gestern Abend habe ich Borez nach einer Woche Italien endlich wieder gesehen. Er war unglaublich verschmust und zum Knuddeln süß. Eigentlich hatte ich erst gar nicht so richtig Lust zu Reiten. Ich bin dann einfach ein bisschen entspannt auf den Platz gegangen. Es war dann so halb neun und es dämmerte schon. Es war wunderschön, ich fühlte mich so verbunden mit ihm. Wir sind nicht perfekt, wir waren einfach wir. Und genau das sind diese besonderen, so wertvollen Momente, die ich gerne für immer einfrieren würde. Es war, als wäre die Zeit stehen geblieben und es gab nur uns zwei. Das kann bestimmt nicht jeder nachvollziehen, aber dieser Abend war einfach ganz besonders. Es ist mir so eine riesen Ehre, dass er mich noch auf seinem Rücken trägt. Ich habe jede Sekunde, die wir noch haben, genossen. Es war dann schon dunkel und nur wir 2 waren unterwegs. Es war still und der Himmel klar, mag kitschig klingen, aber so war es. Durch den Staub des Platzes habe ich jeden Lichtstrahl der einen Lampe gesehen. 💫 Ohne Ansprüche bin ich ihn mit durch hängenden Zügeln geritten. Er war so bei mir und wir sind im Galopp über den dunklen Platz geflogen. Ganze Bahn, Zirkel, aus dem Trab, aus dem Schritt, immer zusammen und regulierbar. Wir haben einfach die Seele baumeln lassen und es war ein unbeschreiblich schönes Gefühl. Einmal ist er richtig unter mir los galoppiert, ich wusste gar nicht, dass er noch so schnell galoppieren kann. Diese Lebensfreude seinerseits gibt mir so viel Kraft. Auch wenn es mal schneller wurde, hatte ich das Gefühl er vertraut mir und ich ihm. Er wusste, dass er darf und ich habe ihm dabei total vertraut und ihn machen lassen. Und das alles im Dunkeln. Ich glaube, er hatte richtig Spaß. ⬇️⬇️Weiter in den Kommentaren⬇️⬇️
✍🏻Les coulisses ✍🏻 Parce qu’on devrait raconter le positif comme le négatif, je me force à le faire car j’ai tendance à toujours vouloir donner une image parfaite de mon travail 🤥 Eden a toujours été compliquée en balade seules, et aujourd’hui j’ai du faire les 3/4 de la balade à pied car elle était trop dangereuse (elle essaie de se mettre debout entre autres). Elle a un côté grégaire ++ que j’ai du mal à gérer 🤔 Il y a eu des périodes où ça allait mieux, du coup c’est rageant de faire ce bond en arrière. Mais c’est comme ça, on va travailler là dessus en partant à pied, et on partira montés seulement avec d’autres le temps que ça aille mieux ! 👌 J’ai pris cette photo après la balade, je l’ai laissée s’exprimer dans le rond de longe et elle avait des choses à dire 😅😅 * * * #younghorse #jeunecheval #work #achievements #sellefrancais #equestrianlife #equestrianthoughts #horsemanship #equineworld #equine
🐴 ~ "A pony is a childhood dream. A horse is an adulthood treasure." {Rebecca Carroll} ✨ Faszination Großpferd  Es ist unglaublich schwer in Worte zu fassen warum, aber irgendwie haben Großpferde etwas an sich, das kein Isländer mir geben kann. Nach den zwei Wochen Reitferienbetreuung auf einem Isländer Hof, ist es mir, beziehungsweise uns bewusst geworden, dass wir unsere Zeit auf lange Sicht eher mit den Großen verbringen wollen. Natürlich ist es cool Isis zu reiten. Und wenn das Pony richtig gut tölten kann ist das schon ein richtig tolles Gefühl, trotzdem fehlt irgendwas. Wenn ein Isi frei neben dir herläuft ist es irgendwie so "normal", wie ein kleiner Hund. Aber wenn sich ein großes Warmblut dazu entscheidet an deiner Seite zu laufen ist das schon beeindruckend. Dass sich dieses große Tier von dir beeinflussen lässt und mit dir zusammen verschmiltzt, ist einfach ein unbeschreibliches Gefühl. Zudem erscheint uns die Arbeit mit den Großen eher auf Augenhöhe zu sein. Ziemlich schwer zu beschreiben warum, aber irgendwie ist es so. Auf dem Rücken dieser Tiere zu sitzen und hoch über dem Boden zu schweben ist geradezu wie fliegen. Dazu die großen, weiten, weichen Bewegungen im Schritt, der schwungvolle, ausdrucksstarke Trab und natürlich der schön gesprungene, raumgreifende Bergauf-Galopp sind Eigenschaften, die wir mit Isländern bisher noch nicht erlebt haben. Außerdem kann man den kleinen plüschigen Isis nicht einfach mal so einen Kuss auf die Nase drücken. Dazu muss man sich nämlich erst runterbeugen. 🙈 ~ Großpferde haben einfach etwas Spezielles an sich, das sie für uns zu etwas ganz Besonderem und Wertvollem machen.💎 ~ Nichts desto trotz freuen wir uns immer auf die Zeit bei unseren kleinen Freunden. Aber unsere Herzen werden uns früher oder später immer wieder zu den Großen ziehen.❤ ~ ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #equestrianthoughts #ponyliebe #großpferdereiter
"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
"I look at my horse and see myself." My horse is often my most accurate mirror. #equestrianthoughts
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 .

🐴 ~ "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

...If only I were sitting on a horse while looking at this🙌🏻 #equestrianthoughts
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?🙏🏻 .

Wonderful and very educational day working with some superstar quarter horses 🐴 it was a pleasure exploring and learning some new ideas from another discipline and breed! The mechanics are the same across the board with all disciplines, but the specific patterns within the bodies vary. Everyone in your horse community has something to teach you! Let’s learn together!  #horsesofinstagram #northcarolina #equestrianthoughts #equestrianlife #quarterhorse #aqha #myofascialrelease #bodywork #equinebodywork #biomechanics
Missing the magic of Colorado. Last years intensive course in Bodywork and Biomechanics completely rearranged my motivation and focus in my equine career. That experience will stay with me forever.

Quotes from life that equate in the saddle- we like to call this “ponies is life” at our barn... My instructor and I have this ongoing thing when each day we ride our black beasts together, and we subsequently learn something about riding, and then equate to something bigger in life. I’ve been trying to teach Dream about what rein means what for ages...but she always either hollows and brings her head up or goes faster. Well I would just increase the pressure until I had what I thought was bend, or a balanced enough horse. WRONG. I was just tugging her around. She didn’t understand. Now, I am going slow, and taking the time to allow her to understand. In addition, I have had to rewrite my brain to understand that riding does not always mean “doing” something. Sometimes you just need to be there for them to figure themselves out under. That’s okay! Learn when NOT to ride!!! #equestrianlife #equestrianthoughts #equestrian #horsesofinstagram #dressage #ride #horse #pony #classicaldressage #inspired #desire #arabianhorse #thoroughbred
When your best friend is in Paris on business and makes a special trip to Hermès @hermes to snap some pics for you...🐴 . Hope everyone is having a great week, and may this Equestrian eye candy help you get through hump day!! . Summer is officially here in Central Florida. It was 94 at 7pm last night 😱 and we haven’t had rain in two weeks.

Wednesdays are my lesson day, and today, lots of things Cowboy and I have been working on have started to click. . .👌🏻🐴🖤 . My trainer got on Cowboy to warm him up, and check in on a few things they had been working on first, at my request. I was so happy when she said he had remembered everything from her last schooling with him, over a month ago!! Yaye Cowboy!! 🙏🏻 . On my way to the barn this morning I was listening to the Amateur Hour Podcast @amateurhour_podcast . It really hit home for me when the girls were talking about Adult Ammies juggling EVERYTHING else in life - children, careers, etc, and still finding time in the saddle. We are not professionals, we ride because we love it and we can’t imagine our lives without horses. . Thank you ladies for speaking about this topic so eloquently. . .🖤 . So looking back on my ride today, I’m going to think twice about getting down on myself. Sure, I’d love to be able to maintain steady contact for more than a lap😂 or remember to keep my heels down😩, and my elbows bent😬, but maybe I’ll also remember to just enjoy the ride. . . 🐴 .

Happiness is having pretty pony curls after you take the show day braids out. . . 🐴 Cowboy has a very fuzzy little forelock, that was even more fluffy when that tight French Braid came out, making him even cuter. ☺️ . I would love to hear anyone’s tips on braiding. I recently listened to Lainey Ashker’s @laineyea braiding routine on The Equestrian Podcast @equestrianpodcast . She said that if you show before noon, braid the night before, and after noon, braid that morning. I think this is a great rule of thumb, especially if you are doing multiple horses. 🙌🏻 . Also, do you use yarn or rubber bands? Any and all tips are appreciated! I think there is nothing more elegant or stylish that a beautifully braided mane.🖤🖤🖤 . #equestrianthoughts #equestriantips #equestriantipsandtricks #equestrianhowtos #equestrianlife #equestrianproblems #equestrianprobs #equestrianstyle #equestrianlove #equestrienne #equestriennedecor #braidedmane #braiding101 #perfectplaits #dressagebraids #hunterbraids #ponybraids #horseshowlife #horseshowstyle #horseshowseason #horseshowprep #horseshowbraids #happinessisapainthorse #painthorselove #painthorsesofinstagram
What is it about a tidy tack room that makes us Equestrians feel so happy?🐴 • It’s so satisfying to see stacks of neatly folded towels and saddle pads, shiny bits accompanying beautiful bridles, and saddles - each with a story to tell. For me, it’s the smell of the leather from the boots, bridles, and saddles that makes my heart pitter patter. ♥️ • What is your favorite stable smell? • • #tackroom #tackroomgoals #tackroomphotography #tackroomsmell #stablestyle #stablegoals #stablephotograph #stablelife #equestriansofinstagram #equestrianthoughts #equestrianlife #equestriandecor #equestriandesign #equestrianblog #equestrianblogger #equestrianphotography #equestrianphotographer #equestrienne #equestriennedecor #pololife #windsor #windsorliving #verobeachlife  PC:www.jcphotoorlando.com 📷
