Short, not too sweet

4 Mar

It all comes down to perspective, doesn’t it?

Sport does not cure world hunger or ensure that everyone has fresh water. Dressage does not quantitatively measure courage or …something.

The ancient Greeks did not ask ,’what do you do’, but rather, ‘what is your passion’–and there is the heart of it.

When we can feel the passion, whether as competitor or spectator, when we can share in the fantasy and the dream–when we are moved– that is when sport or any other human activity actually matters.

Everyone in horse sport says they stay involved for love of the horse. And yet it is amazing how few people watching any of the horse sports ever can feel that love.

Why?
