The Tibetan Book of Thoroughbred Racing

February 12, 2011

1. Do not pay attention or investigate; leave your mind in its own sphere.

2. Do not see any fault anywhere.

3. Do not take anything to heart.

4. Do not hanker after signs of progress.

5. Although this may be called inattention, do not fall prey to laziness.

6. Be in a state of constant inspection.


From Jane Smiley’s Horse Heaven. I love these rules and try to incorporate them into both my barn and civilian life.
