I love working with horses and their humans. Most of what goes wrong with horse and their humans is not in the saddle. It happens on the ground. it happens in the stall. It happens on the way from one place to another. A lot of it has nothing to do with the horse at all. It has to do with things that are older and deeper that make their way into the relationship with the horse. It is rarely intentional or malicious. It often has to do with a lack of awareness, or regard, or attention or understanding.
Most often what I do starts with movement observation. I watch how the person moves around the horse, how the horse responds to them, to its environment, to the various parts of tacking up, leading, riding. I watch. And then bit by bit, I start to decode the dance. What is working? What is confusing? What is missing?
Much of what I do has to do with bringing both horse and human more fully into their bodies, and then more fully into connection with each other. That makes for a better relationship. And usually it makes for a better ride. Happier horse, happier human. I love that.
