Not only do we need to sense our own body positioning, muscle tension and postural balance, but also our horse’s joints, muscles, tendons and balance. Every athlete’s proprioceptive nerves work hard, but for the rider, it’s double the effort taking the horse into consideration as well. My journey with horses continues to provide me with confidence, discipline and profound joy.

There is nothing more rewarding in life than pursuing your passion and, equally, being able to share that knowledge and passion with others.

She demonstrated, using a bridle, what the feel of light contact versus no contact should be. She even provided a demonstration where we could feel the amount of leg contact she wants all the riders to have on their horse.

Proprioception is your body’s ability to sense movement, action, and location. Without proprioception, you wouldn’t be able to move without thinking about your next step. An example of proprioception is the ability to touch your nose with your eyes closed. Perfection can lead to fixed ideas and ideologies that are contrary to the evolution of thought and form. Perfection is a construct of mind that wishes to abolish the uncertainty and ambiguity of life.
