EMHH Episode 13: Is Your Horse REALLY Relaxed? Are You?

 

You want your horse to be relaxed and responsive. But do you know if your horse TRULY is relaxed? Some horses appear relaxed, but they’re NOT.

You’ll learn why “relaxed readiness” is essential for your horse’s athletic ability – and your own. You’ll learn why relaxed muscles have more potential strength than muscles that are chronically tight.

These Special Moves Can Help an Injured or Stressed Horse Recover

 

Slow, rhythmic movements can help an injured, stressed horse recover.

With my hands resting lightly on the bay mare’s rib cage, we simply breathed together for several minutes. Her breathing was shallow. And faster than normal. It was obvious that the horse was stressed. Very stressed.

The mare, whose name was Grace, had recently returned from a camping trip in the mountains. Three days of riding in rocky, mountainous terrain had taken their toll on the horse. She hadn’t been conditioned to handle that type of grueling work.

 

Her person, a well-meaning woman named Estelle, was distraught when she realized what she had “done” to her horse. Until they were out on the trail, Estelle didn’t realize that her fellow campers would be riding for several hours a day. For three days. On steep, rocky trails.

While riding with her fellow campers, Estelle had been caught up in the moment and probably wasn’t thinking clearly. The bay mare, wanting to stay...

EMHH Episode 12: Don't Overlook This if You Want a Sound Horse

 

You want your horse to enjoy a lifetime of sound, athletic movement. But you're probably overlooking the one thing that can help your horse enjoy sound, healthy movement.

In this episode, you'll learn why it's ESSENTIAL to pay attention to how your horse coordinates his movement, rather than focusing on the individual joints, muscles, etc.

Coordination is the key to healthy and balanced movement. It can reduce the risk of injury, allow strained parts to heal and restore freer, more youthful movement. It even affects your horse's emotional state!

EMHH Episode 10: Why Riders Can't Use Muscle Memory

 

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!!!

Want to feel more flexible and confident in body and mind? My new online group coaching program, "Easy Flexibility and Powerful Confidence" is opening soon! I'm looking for a small group of heart-centered horse people to join us at a DISCOUNTED PRICE.
