About the Book

Riding In Dignity

An urgent manifesto and a practical guide on how to rekindle our spiritual and timeless connection to the horse and reclaim the ‘avatar-like’ bond. This guide lays out a philosophical map to supercharge the senses and resurrect one’s inner wisdom as the compass to ‘best practices’ approach to horsemanship. The clue of the book's core theme is cleverly nested in the book title in the form of a double entendre, 'riding in dignity or is it 'riding indignity’? ....

A DEEP DIVE PHILOSOPHICAL ROAD MAP TO EXPAND OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN-HORSE BOND.
