Victor Franconi: on linking

“The softness and flexibility so much links the rider with the horse, that it results from it a kind of homogeneity, which binds, which joins the movements of the horse to the seat and enveloping of the rider.” Victor Franconi

It is hard for the French to realize the height of their own equestrian culture when they confuse art with competition. In competition there is one winner, in art everyone wins….there are no losers except for the one who sacrifices his art to win. Art is not about approval but about an experience.
