The article focuses on the essentiality of horse riding as a language of shared rhythms of nerve, skin and bone and a jazz played by two bodies in a vernacular movement and touch. Dancing with a horse can be started by walking with it and inviting it to dance with a steady stride. When riding a horse, a dancer must let his/her legs soften around the flanks of the horse while feeling the movement of the spine and back of the animal.
