The Rider and the Ride

Often our default when confronting a problem in our riding is to try to fix the horse, when the actual issue may begin with the rider. In an Embodied Horsemanship lesson or clinic, rather than focusing on "fixing" the horse, we look at where the rider may be holding habitual patterns of imbalance or tension. Paula suggests specific exercises and mindfulness practices to help release resistance and find greater softness, ease and flow between horse and rider. By learning basic movement awareness skills that expand softness and connection, you will create greater physical and emotional balance, communication and performance for both horse and rider.

In addition, simple groundwork exercises, many drawn from the Tellington TTEAM methods, and help to create clearer communication, and balance for both horse and human.

What a gift to horsemanship and consciousness! I can't wait for Paula's next class. She provided great practices and tools for transforming the foundation of our relationship with our horses - as well as any other living creature. Such a shift will bring more grace, ease and joy into the lives of all. I will enjoy being present with my four (and two) legged partners more, simply noticing the "problems/challenges" disappearing.
