Body Awareness for Riders | Lucie Klaassen .
Being a good trainer for your horse starts with yourself. We want our horse to be relaxed but are you aware of tension in your own body? We want our horses to bend to the left and to the right with equal flexibility, but how is your own flexibility? We want our horses to walk in balance but how is your own posture and walking? We want a true connection with our horse, but do you have a connection with your inner self?
We so often live too much in our head and we have become disconnected from our bodies and our emotions. The connection to our inner self happens through our body and not the mind. Through breathing and body awareness you will become aware of tension in your body and be able to release it, you will find and consciously start using muscles that are made for keeping our body in an upright position (don’t we want ‘self carriage’ from our horses as well) and for moving our body.
Once we are connected again to our breathing and our body, we also automatically get in touch with the wisdom of our body and our heart.
We can ask certain exercises from horses but the requests will come from our inner picture and body wisdom. We can guide the horse with clarity and softness.
Conscious breathing, awareness of your body, learning to use your inner core muscles and finding relaxation in action will connect you to yourself and to your horse!
