Things I have learned from horse riding

Kyrgyz often grow up hearing that “Horses are human’s wings”, “best friend”, “soulmate” and most of us if we have family in rural areas learn to horse ride. Or rather put on a horse, so we learn to ride it. You are never really told what you should do and should not on  a horse. So I was taken by surprise, when I finally two years ago walked into a horse riding school. It was totally different: a systematic teaching on how to saddle the horse, ride it and take care of it. So learn I did. In this post I am sharing few insights I gained during those lessons and my collections of desktop backgrounds. All of which are horses.

Lesson 1. To keep the balance you need to be neither too tense, nor too lose.

Lesson 2. To feel doesn’t mean to see. Sometimes seeing prevents you from feeling the obstacles.

Lesson 3. To move forward safely and surely you need to see afar perspective.

Lesson 4: Sometimes you do better with your brain turned off , because you don’t focus on how to do things, but instead focus on doing them
