Enlightening riders on how to truly become one with the horse, this spiritual riding guide opens the world of molecular equitation, otherwise known as the scientific study of the interplay of mechanisms when humans and horses meet, communicate, and interact. By encouraging the equestrian to let the horse be the teacher at times, this book explains how a rider can change consciousness in order to affect riding habits and build on togetherness with an equine partner. A beautiful example of the importance of respecting, trusting, and fully connecting with the horse, this resource provides the key to obtaining the ever-elusive quest to find total lightness on horseback.
