I have been a dancer and a lover of horses most of my life. Much of that time was in fact an out of body experience. Years of dance training meant pushing the body, often with very little awareness of what my own body was telling me about pain and limitation. My body was a first of all a vehicle for dancing – I expected it to work. When I found myself hungering to dance with horses, not just ride them, but draw together my two great passions – horses and dance – I discovered to my surprise that it was the horses that brought me most deeply into my body. By learning to communicate clearly with them through the shared language of movement and touch, I also learned how to live more fully and attentively in my own body. Horse Dancing bridges my experiences with horses and my lifelong practice as a mover. It is about what horses can teach us about the wild and subtle language of the body.
