We want to be in balance, to feel as though we are flowing with the horse’s movement.
But riding is so much more than just the ability to stay in the saddle.
Good riding is the art of being calmly present, connected to the horse, feeling their movement, and clearly guiding them.
It can be oh so easy to get lost in the worries of the day, in the anxiety of what the horse may do next, wondering if we are sitting correctly… is this where my leg is supposed to go when I ask for canter? Are my hands in the right place? Am I pulling too much on the reins?
The constant chatter of thoughts is normal, but our best riding happens when the chatter slows, when we find the sweet spot of working within our ability, yet challenging ourselves just enough…
When we are in the movement, feeling it instead of thinking about it.
So much riding instruction focuses only on how to.
The element of feeling can be lost. The art of staying connected to your horse, and to your own body, can be forgotten.
The result of this kind of instruction is a rider who feels too “in their head”. They may know what they are supposed to do, but they always feel out of sync with the horse. They are worried and anxious and tend to ride stiff and tense. The horse feels this and may be spooky and flighty. Or they may not want to move at all.
If this sounds like you, I can help.
