The October editorial (”Looking For Poetry In Motion”) was wonderful. The best moments when riding are when we’re in harmony with our horses.
I know you don’t have much coverage on Natural Horsemanship, but Linda Parelli and Parelli Natural Horsemanship focus a lot on this. The great thing about their system is that everyday non-competitive riders like me (even though I spent 20 years in the hunter ring prior to discovering Parelli) can apply the techniques at basic levels and can take it as far as being able to do piaffe and passage one day. At higher levels, riding without reins is possible and encouraged.
I mainly subscribe for Veterinary Editor Dr. Eleanor Kellon’s articles. I used the Horse Journal Guide to Equine Supplements and Nutraceuticals book to design a feeding regimen for my horse (www.horse-journal.com, 800-424-7887). I also love your product trials and purchase products based solely on Horse Journal recommendations.
