We'll spend the morning exploring various unmounted awareness practices designed to facilitate deeper connection in our own bodies. Through movement, we'll learn how muscle, bone and fascia enable or inhibit our ability to experience full range of motion.
In the afternoon, participants who choose to ride will have the opportunity to transfer their new awareness to the saddle in individual mounted lessons. T
hose who do not ride may still be involved from the ground. Space is available for a total of ten participants; mounted lessons limited to five riders. Mounted participants may bring their own horse or borrow a lesson horse. Some riding experience is helpful but not required -- beginners are welcome. Experienced riders will discover a deeper sense of connection with the horse.
Provides participants with the tools to begin cultivating a deeper level of mind/body awareness. When we have knowledge of our inner landscape, we are more capable of fostering the human-to-horse relationship.
Explores the many means of establishing contact with the horse, both on the ground and in the saddle, using a full range of our perceptual awareness, including sight, sound, feeling, thoughts, emotions and intuition.
Focuses on establishing equilibrium while managing the power of the horse. By using awareness and connection to join centers with our equine partners, we find true balance.
Deepens our understanding of how mindfulness practices can enhance our experience of congruence in and out of the saddle. When we are present, connected and in balance, we can begin to move in harmony with the horse. This allows us to travel effortlessly together through space while resonating at the same frequency on a molecular level.
