VOLUME 49 © HORSES For LIFE Magazine
Just Say YES!
It is with heartfelt gratitude to the over 41,000 people out there who, under the pressure of just a few weeks of time, identified what they dont want to see in dressage, that we dedicate and announce Just Say YES! - which we guarantee will excite and inspire you.
Just Say YES! is designed to make all of us think about what is most beautiful between a horse and a person. It is about identifying what is most beautiful to each of us personally and why that is so. It is about inspiring ourselves and each other to greater heights of excellence in whatever we do with our horses.
This is your story, not ours. This should belong to each and every one of you. We will be focussing on visual images for that inspiration here at Horses For Life video and photographs that demonstrate to you, that speak to you about all the wonderful and beautiful things that dressage and other areas of horsemanship can be images that inspire you whenever you look at them - and that you think will inspire others. Images that make you shout YES! with excitement, YES! Thats what I want to see!
An essential part of that inspiration is your comments about the images that you send in your comments about what there is about this image that Just Says YES! to you about the beauty and the poetry that a horse and human can be together.
41,000 people signed the petition against Rollkur that went to the FEI last week. 41,000 people decided what they DIDNT want to see. Imagine the power for change when 41,000 plus people focus on what they DO want to see.
Wow, what a thought
Thus, Just Say YES! is born here today.
We are looking forward with excitement to this campaign rolling across the world, emphasising all that is positive out there in the horse world and bringing about even more of the excitement and beauty that being with horses can inspire.
Just Says YES! to
You will no doubt want to say "YES!" to something different to us collaborating on this campaign - in fact I'll be surprised if you don't. Just Say YES! is designed to celebrate those differences.
But most of all, Just Say YES! is about you - so what do YOU want to say "YES!" to?
Send us the photos and video footage of those things that demonstrate what you want to say "YES!" to, to this link.
Feel free to upload both your photos and videos to our facebook pages,
or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
It can be either a photo or video footage of a horse and person doing some beautiful piece of horse work that you admire. It could be at the elite level of horsemanship. It could be a little kid doing something beautiful with their pony. It may be of yourself and your own horse. Please don't forget to say who it is (horse and person) and contact details for them if you have that information, because we may want to ask permission to use these images for an exciting new project that is on the drawing board.
And most importantly, dont forget to write what it is about this image that inspires you and WHY you think this is a truly beautiful piece of work.
Horses For Life is going to run a competition for the image that best fits what they Say YES! to, with regular prizes of a year's subscription to Horses For Life, amongst other things. A subscription that you can gift to anyone!!!
It is our wish and desire that Just Say YES! rolls out all over the world, with joyful positiveness - emphasising the vast amount of what is already wonderful and beautiful and positive out there in the horse world and escalating it to engage even more people in new heights of beautiful horsemanship.
So be encouraged to take this Just Say YES! idea and run with it yourself. Set up your own websites, your own discussion groups, your own blogs, your own facebook pages talk about it, laugh about it, be inspired about it, inspire others about it.
Keep it positive. Keep it beautiful. Keep it inspiring.
And do all that
for the horse and for you.
