For the Betterment of the Horse
We all have a responsibility toward creation. The domestic creatures we share our lives with are at the mercy of our care. Will we improve the quality of their lives as they improve the quality of ours? Or will we allow the breakdown of our leadership cause quality of life to lessen? This is up to all animal owners and caretakers. Classical training is the way we improve the quality of the horses' life. Teaching him how to carry his rider and himself aligns his back and strengthens his body to prevent pain and injury while improving his emotional connection to his rider and toward his work. This lengthens the life of the horse and raises the quality of his life.
"Do you give the horse its strength?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
Do you cause him to leap like locust?
His majestic snorting is terrifying!
He paws in the valley
and exalting in his strength he charges into the fray.
He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
he does not recoil from the sword.
On him the quiver rattles;
the spear and javelin flash.
With quaking and excitement, he swallows up the ground.
He cannot stand still when the shofar sounds.
At the blast of the shofar, he says, ‘Aha!’
From a distance he smells battle,
the shout of the captains and the battle cry."
