This quote is wonderful for both riders and artists:
"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe." - Anatole France
Many great athletes practice mentally picturing themselves performing to perfection. Could this be a form of dreaming -- incorporating planning -- that leads to confidence and believing? Have you tried it with your riding? During my riding lesson yesterday my instructor was telling me about a seminar she'd just attended where the emphasis was on mentally communicating with your horse. This seems to parallel the ideas in Anatole France's quote.
Artists are all about dreaming up creative ways to make outstanding artwork.
This painting features the dreamy Hereje, an Andaulsian stallion from Herradura Andalusians in Texas. I believe he is one of the most photogenic horses on the planet!
