“Synergy” – from the Greek word synergos (working together)
My goal as an artist is to create art that has meaning to you. Our experiences with horses teach us about synergy. In dressage, synergy obviously means working in partnership with the horse. We encourage their power and expressiveness by modulating their speed and balance in a harmonious way. We train to use the most subtle of aids so that we are not taking away their energy but subtly containing or directing it.
In life, we all need synergistic relationships. Relationships where we bring out the best in people and people bring out the best in us. Sometimes this requires a little communication (modulation) to focus on what that is. But once we find it – we are all better for it.
Hoping this image will always remind you to create and allow more synergy in your home-life, work-life and horse-life.
