In the Academic Art of Riding I found a way to spent meaningful quality time together with horses. Over the years it developed and became my way to meditate. I calm down, feel my and my horses energy and can balance myself. The better I learn do balance myself, the further I can develop together with my horse. Each day we meet each other again, each day is new and different, and each day we grow together. This way to spend time with horses is rich and simple, amazing but very down to earth. It is nothing exclusive. It is open for every horseman and -woman, no matter what breed the horse is, no matter how crooked his legs are. Neither do you need fancy equipment, nor stylish clothing. The art and the handcraft as its basic are commited only to the physical and mental wellbeing of the horse.
