The Talmud


Who do you believe?

One of the problems of modern horsemanship is the number of experts and would be expert that are willing to tell others how to behave around horses. The advice and information available to the equine owner is now so great that owners are almost paralysed with information, not knowing what to do for the best.


I have learnt a simple rule to deal with this problem, dont believe anyone. I dont mean never believe anyone but rather dont just believe people because they give you their opinion. Listen, consider and decide.


While discussing this principle with the host of a recent clinic, she went to the kitchen wall and brought me the following quote which I feel most beautiful demonstrates the concept much better than I could.


Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it
