When we climb onto the back of a horse with a mind and behaviors all it’s own, we are always taking on the risk that we could fall.
As careful as we try to be, it could still happen.
A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about accepting risk. Safety does come in pretending that risks do not exist, safety comes from choosing the risk we are willing to take on and then working hard to prepare for those risks.
We know that falls can happen, yet we often move from either trying to ignore this reality in the hopes it will never happen to us, or fighting our mind’s wishes to obsess about the “what-ifs” that could happen.
What if we could find a middle ground? What if we didn’t ignore the obvious risk of falling that is present every time we climb on the back of a horse, but we didn’t worry about it either? We simply prepared…
That is what I want to show you in this video. It is possible to train your body how to fall. It does take time, consistency, and the patience that is necessary in building strength and body awareness, but it is possible.
In this video, I am going to show you a simple exercise to get started in building the strength and skills necessary to remain safe in a fall.
