Following A Soft Feel - When I work with my horses, one of the first things I want to teach them is how to follow a soft feel. This allows me to communicate in a subtle, yet highly effective way. Whether you are working in hand with a halter, cavesson, or bridle, or you are working under saddle, it is important that your horse understands how to follow a feel with softness and relaxation, rather than bracing against the contact or resisting the connection.

Introduction To Riding With The Chakras ~ With Bonus Meditation” - 

Many of us have been told that in order to cultivate a stronger connection with our horses, both on the ground and in the saddle, it is first necessary to be connected within ourselves.

The question is, what does that really mean, and how do we do that??

Riding With The Chakras gives riders and non-riders alike tools to cultivate a deeper sense of being grounded, centered and aligned. From this place we can develop a stronger body-mind-spirit connection which our horses naturally resonate with. Your horsemanship and your riding will shift to a whole new level.

Preparing to grow with horses -

We want our relationships with horses to be deep, meaningful, and profound. These types of experiences become much more frequent with some simple preparation. Horses challenge us to grow in ways that help us get beyond our chattering minds and into our authentic selves. We can find ways to work and play together that are engaging, fun, and healthy for all of us.

Before you can go, make sure you can stop! - I believe it's really important that we teach our horses how to find relaxation in motion and at a stand still. This is so that even if they do get a fright or spook at something they know they can come back to a stand still and feel good.
