And that’s the point – you are never “complete.” The more you practice a technique by finding tiny gaps, the more you notice and improve, ad infinitum. The learning gets deeper until you are always learning, always adjusting. When that shift occurs, you are hungry for resources and for time to practice because you’ve seen how a tiny shift in the way you pay attention has made such a huge difference for the horse. You go from minding the gap
to loving the gap
because that’s where you’ll find the next tiny shift that makes a big difference.
