Riding is unique to any other activity we do. In riding, we partner with a large and powerful being – the horse.
We need to communicate with the horse while sitting atop them, maintaining our balance (hopefully) as they move. In riding, we face our fear, because we face a real risk. We could fall. We could be hurt.
When we ride, we find confidence in ourselves and trust in the horse. And the process of doing this, the challenge of doing this, is what makes riding so special.
In this way, riding is more than the physical challenge of just staying on and moving in sync with the horse. It is also a mental challenge as we choose how far to push ourselves.
And it is a relational challenge as we seek to understand and communicate with the horse.
In this video, we’ll talk about how riding is often taught only considering the physical challenge – how do you sit, how do you hold the reins, etc, while neglecting the other elements of great riding.
HOW you learn matters, so watch this video to discover a progressive and complete path to learning riding.
