“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”- Steve Jobs

The Eight Principles.

1. Horsemanship is natural.

2. Don´t make or teach assumptions.

3. Communication is two or more individuals
sharing and understanding an idea

4. The eight responsibilities of a Partnership.

There are four responsibilities for the human:
1. Don’t act like a predator. Become more mentally,
emotionally and physically fit.
2. Have an independent seat.
3. Think like a horse–man.
4. Use the natural power of focus.

And four for the horse:
1. Don’t act like a prey animal. Become more mentally,
emotionally and physically fit.
2. Don’t change gait.
3. Don’t change direction.
4. Look where you are going
When you take over the horse’s responsibilities instead of teaching him to uphold them, and when you don’t take care of your own, there can be no partnership. It will be something more like master and slave. The human becomes more domineering and less effective and the horse becomes mindless.

5. The attitude of justice is effective.

6. Body language is universal.

7. Horses teach humans, humans teach horses.

8. Principles, purpose and time are the tools of teaching.
