Subject: Book ‘The alchemy of lightness’
Dear Mestre Barbier,

I am a rider from Holland and I just want to send you a message to thank you for having written the book ‘The alchemy of lightness’!

In my development as a horsewoman it has given me  a lot of very inspirational information to ride my horse better.
The oneness is coming closer and closer now and I appreciate my horse more than ever!
Wonderful book which I will cherish for the rest of my life.
I saw on your website that you are planning a trip to Portugal in November.  I will be in Portugal too from 9 – 14 November.
First staying a few days in Beja (visiting breeders) and then go to Golega from 12 – 14 November. Maybe we will have a chance to meet each other for just 5 minutes? It would be a honor for me to meet you!


Kind regards
