Are you familiar with equestrianism?
Equestrianism originated in the middle of the twelveth century, first introduced in the European royal family. Hundreds of years later, equestrianism became the representative of the etiquette of the central European era, thus making it a noble traditional sport. Modern equestrianism is mainly parcticed by the high-end communities, and it has become not only a social activity, but also a part of lifestyle for horse-loving people.
Here is a 1 minute-long introductory video, best watched when you're connected to WiFi.
Equestrianism is quite different from traditional horseback riding.
While traditional horseback riding focuses on speed, equestrianism focuses more on gentle movements. Coordination between man and horse plays a very important role in this sport, as better control results in better performance.
Equestrianism also requires self-control and a quick wit. People who feel anxious in the presence of horses have to somehow control their emotions as horses are sensitive animals and they can sense your fear. If your emotions aren't handled well, your overall performance will certainly be affected.
In equestrianism, because the human body is closely attached to the horse, each movement made, each breath taken by both sides are felt by each other. This is a kind of soul communication.
