 about the tao of Horsemanship

I’d like to introduce you the Tao of Horsemanship and what we are all about. There are many definitions of Taoism. The one that best suites me and my approach to all things is the word harmony.

 

The Tao of Horsemanship is about developing harmony with your horse, in mind, body (movement) and soul (relationship). The soul of the horse is where the heart of the relationship resides and where deep and fulfilling connections are made and kept throughout all levels of my training system. That’s what makes my training method so different and rewarding for both horse and rider – staying connected.

The depth of connection, communication and relationship developed between horse and rider is what creates the level of harmony we need to ride in true unity and safely. This is where we learn to ride as one, and in mind, body and soul.

 

Because my horse training method is all about the relationship, we must begin with ourselves. Mindfulness and self-awareness are some of the essential building blocks needed for any relationship, including the relationship we share with our horses. Like all socially and emotionally intelligent species, horses are motivated by their emotions and relationships. How our horses feel about us, perceive us, experience us is so important to the relationship we want to develop with them. That’s why we begin with mindfulness (mindset) and specific liberty work. Both create the strength of connection and relationship needed to ride in harmony and safely.
