Week 2

The focus of the second week will align with the 4 Pillars of Aligned Equitation. This approach respects the natural behaviours of horses, treating them as partners rather than tools. You will learn to communicate in a language more natural to the horse, nurturing mutual understanding and respect. If you continue on this path, as you refine your practice, you'll be able to enter a seamless state of flow with the horse.

This type of horsemanship also strengthens our own body, mind, soul balance, presence in our bodies and flexibility of the mind.

✹☾ Herd Language of Trust & Respect

Learn how to build mutual trust and respect on the ground at liberty with horses. No halter, no lead, with free horses. Communicating in their language, you will forge a deeper connection to your horse, yourself, and to all of life. These skills help us not just with our horses but in how we interact with others in life, giving us skills to have boundaries, speak our truth, open our heart to give and receive love.

✹☾ Ride in Balance

Learn to ride bareback for correct alignment and a relaxed body. This can help realign the spine at a gentle pace, and is used as post-back surgery rehabilitation. We teach all beginners to ride bareback first, making saddle riding more natural with the correct posture and balance.

✹☾ Ride with your Breath

Experience how to practice using your breath to influence your emotions and energy and that of your horses, moving with ease and fluidity you will experience riding in lightness and true connection with your horse.

✹☾ Ground Archery with Horses. 

Archery aids in asserting ourselves by connecting with our innate power. It fosters confidence, stability, focus, and awareness. Unleash your inner deity.
