Do you rely on muscle memory to mount your horse without thinking about all the steps involved? Do you use muscle memory to post the trot or navigate a course?

In this episode, I explain why muscle memory is NOT helping you ride better. In fact, thinking about muscle memory can interfere with your ability to ride well.

But don't worry! I explain what to do instead of relying on muscle memory. And how this different approach can give you a better chance of staying balanced on your horse even in challenging situations.

💥Exciting News!!! 💥

Imagine you wanted to change corporate policy at a Fortune 500 company. Would you rather meet with the CEO or plead your case to an entry-level store clerk? Now imagine you want to improve your ability to move with ease, agility and comfort.
 
Your nervous system is like the CEO and your muscles are the clerks who are following orders. So it makes sense to "talk" to your nervous system, instead of stretching and straining individual muscles. People rarely know how to do this, though!
 
In this week's episode of "Easier Movement, Happier Horses," I explain how you can communicate effectively with your nervous system so that you can move with greater ease, comfort and agility. I hope you have a listen. Thanks so much! ❤🐴
