If only all our actions in world gave feedback as immediate as the relationship with our horses do, what a wonderful world it would be. There is no denying the bond or partnership built between horse and rider. That relationship touches on many levels including mind and body collectively.
- Did you ever have such terrible day that you spent the whole day just waiting to get to the stable and connect with your horse to blow out the cobwebs of your head with a good ride – only to discover that your horse was having a bad day too?
- Did you ever have a significant injury that took time to heal and continued riding while your injury was healing? If so, did your horse move differently during that time or develop any unusual site soreness under saddle?
- Did you ever notice if you have one pant leg shorter than the other? Or perhaps one pant leg that twists around while the other one remain straight? Or perhaps maybe the waist of the pants and zipper twist in one direction or the other throughout the day? Did you ever wonder what messages something like that might send to your partner beneath the saddle?
Horses don’t talk but it doesn’t mean they don’t communicate!
When horse & rider work together, they operate as one unit. It is a partnership in motion where biomechanics and paired bio-feedback is key. If the horse or rider has a restriction that limits freedom of movement, the other is going to feel it and, as a good partner would, compensate for it.
