Exploring the Natural State
The aim of this session is to guide your horse and yourself into Balance.
There is a fine equilibrium between energy input (e.g. voice, aids, whip, energy, expectations, etc.) and energy output (movement, forward drive, communication such as tail, licking, chewing, etc.).
In a session we’ll be closely paying attention to the horse’s communication in order to FEEL the natural state – the moment when input and output are in harmony.
You will learn about your horse’s natural ability, pace & releasing time, and your horse will strongly connect with its own body and its natural capabilities – without putting tension into the body.
The Gifts of Balance
There is a saying that your inner balance is always reflected by your outer environment. In this case this will be your horse.
From this state of balance, we can ask for more: be it impulsion, forward or collection.
We’ll get an honest sense of how much of “more than natural” we can ask without compromising the body or our relationship to your horse.
In balance the horse has the ability to release stored tension – instead of accumulating more tension through work. And of course, with time and patience, the natural Normal will move towards More all by itself. The effect of tension-free, kind & sustainable training.
