Entanglements

One of the most common questions I get is whether I can recommend any videos, books, etc that have inspired me as a horse person. The truth of the matter is that the most influential books in my horsemanship have often had nothing to do with horses, but instead are thought provoking on other subjects that I find connection to horsemanship through. I am going to try and periodically post non-horsey (but entirely horsey) texts on this site that will hopefully inspire and excite your life and horsemanship!

I listened to a great podcast this morning about the concept of Entanglement. http://www.npr.org/podcasts/510307/invisibilia. You can find the podcast below entitled "Entanglement" on this Invisibilia podcast link.

I have gathered inspiration from this concept for years thanks to my exposure in college to a deep thinker named Karen Barad who I have been lucky enough to call my teacher and friend now for many years. She is completely unconnected to the above podcast, but her book delves deep into the question of entanglements and if you are up for a more in depth exploration (and a glimpse into what I consider the foundation of my horsemanship) her brilliant book is called "Meeting the Universe Halfway" and can be found on Amazon.

Be bold with your thinking and with your horses... and enjoy!
