There’s a dial tone, or the line is dead. With a horse, your state of mind makes the difference between being simply tethered to the animal and being connected. A lead rope is also like a writing pen. It can be an exquisitely fabricated, finely tuned instrument, like a Mont Blanc Meisterstuck, or a forgettable, utilitarian, throwaway number. Both write, but one provides an experience and the other is merely a tool. At first glance, a lead is just a piece of rope, connecting you and your horse, but I contend it represents the essence of communication between you.
