The power and grace of horses sets them apart from other animals. The fluid movements of a mare, a stallion, and even the humble pony under saddle carry us into new worlds, ones that can only be viewed from horseback. When the author was fifteen, she learned dressage and jumping. The experience developed a part of her soul and nourishes her to this day.
Thoroughbred breeds competing in horse sports, foals, wild horses, draft horses, horse racing, palominos, colts and saddle horses are stablemates for our lives. The everyday interactions between horse and rider are found with the Shetland pony, yearlings, feral horses, shire horses, miniature horses, appaloosas, Arabians, bangtails, and more.
Working with horses is spiritual. The rider must be calm and collected while respecting their partner. When that happens, horse and rider transcend. Zen in the Stable honors that relationship.
A gorgeous collection for every equestrian, horse enthusiast, animal lover, and anyone seeking a moment of peace, Zen in the Stable demonstrates that the human-horse connection can enrich our lives and make us happier, healthier, calmer, and more loving.
Perfect for every horse girl. No matter how many Breyer horse models are in a collection or a conga, Zen in the Stable makes a great addition to a horse girl’s life. Be the first to take Zen in the Stable to Breyerfest at the Kentucky Horse Park or to a local model horse show to share the stunning photos and make new horse girl friends.
