It is an odd thing to be trained by classicists. Once the hook is set you are caught for life. You find yourself, years after the masters have gone, at some party where people are marveling at the newest dressage sensation. They look at you and say "isn't he (or she) wonderful? In your mind, you curse your old teachers. How they ruined it for you! You want to have fun with the glitterati. You fumble to be polite, for respect was also part of your training. You, by now, have been made legitimately humble but the strict lessons of certain horses! Yet inside, you know that, beyond that rider's handmade saddle, beyond the golden brow-band, the tailored coat and the custom beaver hat, no it's not wonderful. The horse is not straight.

Stallen sliter mer på hesten enn veien gjør.

In many top dressage horses, the weight does not shift significantly from the front to the hind limbs as the horse becomes more collected. However, a few horses do show a marked weight shift, and seem to be the horses that are particularly well balanced. Therefore, balance may indeed be related to the horse's ability to carry more weight on the hind quarters, but the absence of the ability does not preclude a horse from competing at the highest levels of competition.

Dr. Hilary Clayton (som forsker på den faktiske vektfordelingen mellom forpart og bakpart på konkurransehester)

If we accept the truth of Dr. Clayton's statement (and I personally do), then someone has redefined collection in competiton, or it has been deemed unimportant.

Om du vil være nær en hest, må du være nær deg selv. Da kan hesten nærme seg deg.

"The secret in riding is to do few things right. The more one does, the less one succeeds. The less one does, the more one succeeds."

Et bilde av den "korrekte" sitsen gis ikke (i denne boken) for derigjennom å understreke den faren som ligger i å overdrive betydningen av den ytre formen. Balanse, løsgjorthet og medgående i hestens bevegelse lar seg knappest avbilde, like lite som følelse. Hvilket ikke betyr at den korrekte sitsen ikke er viktig.

Wilhelm Müseler (i boken "Ridelære")

"In order for the flying changes to be good, one needs a springy canter. One has to feel that the horse has bascule."

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the
'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own
them, it is a far better time for horses.

Ode to the Horse

Where in this wide world can a man find
nobility without pride,
friendship without envy or beauty without vanity?
Here: where grace is laced
with muscle and strength by gentleness confined.
He serves without servility;
he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful,
nothing less violent;
there is nothing so quick,
nothing less patient.
England's past has been bourne on his back.
All our history is his industry.
We are his heirs; he our inheritance.
The Horse

Ronald Duncan

When I hear somebody talk about a horse or cow being stupid, I figure its a sure sign that the animal has outfoxed them.

Alle de nevnte feilene forsvinner så snart hesten kommer under hjelperne.
