Oft times the simple things in life are the most notable. Plato once said, “Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.” I came across a video clip recently of the famed ecuyer Nuno de Oliveira at work on a beautiful horse that I thought would brighten your day, whether you are in the horse community or not. Enjoy the beauty, harmony and grace of this presentation.
Isn’t it wonderful to watch someone who loves what they do? There is such relaxation, such ease, such command and clarity of purpose. Course changes and corrections are taken and made with the lightest – if not invisible – touch. Wouldn’t it be a different world if everyone were to carry themselves in their affairs as gracefully and proudly as Sr. de Oliveira upon his light and powerful horse?
