Vulnerability and these Sunday Videos

One With Your Horse and Your Job

Hey, it’s Barb, and in the last few weeks I’ve been talking about the idea of flow.

I’m talking about a sense of being in the moment and being connected to your horse – like nothing else exists but you, your horse and your job.

In this video I’m going to expand that idea.

How Flow is Developed

I want to talk to you about “flow.”

But first – in last week’s video, I outlined four pieces of Riding Confidence.

  1. Horsemanship
  2. Confidence with other people
  3. Confidence in the saddle
  4. Confidence in trusting yourself, loving your journey, and believing in yourself.

Of course, all those pieces matter, and we need all of them.

Beginning with this video and, through the next three weeks, I will dive into a series of fun happenings – videos, live streams of 10-minute mindsets, and online lessons.

I will expand the Confidence in the Saddle piece to an idea called flow.

Four Essentials for Riding Confidence

I want to share something with you today that gives me a lot of clarity and comfort about how we cultivate confidence, courage, skill, and joy with our horses. I will walk you through four essential aspects, and then I’ll look forward to hearing your feedback.

How to Develop Light
Responsiveness in Your Horse

One of the things I see when people ride is that they don’t want to hurt their horses with the bit or their feet.

Of course, you don’t. No one wants to do that.

The other side of that coin is that if you ask too lightly with your cues and they don’t respond, then you release them; you have just trained them to be unresponsive to light signals. That’s not good, either.

So what I’m about to share with you are guidelines for developing your horse’s responsiveness to light cues. That’s what this video is all about.

Here’s the Diff

What I’m about to tell you is the same for riders across the board; actually, it’s the same for humans across the board, but I’m going to give you an example from the cutting world.

The National Cutting Horse Association just wrapped up its 2nd largest show of the year. It’s one of the biggies, so there’s always a lot of excitement around it.

That’s what this video is all about.

When Creativity Meets Passion

Hey, it’s Barb, and I’m at the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame Museum in Fort Worth.

By the time you get this, I have already presented at the Museum.

Every time I’m in this place, I’m so moved by what creativity and passion can do in our lives. And creativity and passion don’t have to be recognized in a museum, and those attributes are for all of us to embrace.

How Horses See Us

This past Thursday, I planned to do a video outside — but — a huge rain event axed my plans.

So I decided to have fun and make a different kind of video to share an insight into how horses see us.

As you know, I’m pretty casual in general, so this video is no different. You’ll have to tell me what you think about how I did with my new high-tech art side of things!

And BTW, the horse’s conformation behind was not my fave, with the hocks way out behind!

Train Them and Trust Them

I don’t know where I saw this phrase, “Train them and then trust them,” but it resonates with me about working with a horse on many different levels.

The same is true about ourselves. When we put in long hours of training on a specific skill that’s given us trouble, if we’ve truly done our homework, when the rubber meets the road, we need to trust ourselves.

That’s what this video is all about.

A Challenge for You, One for Your Horse

We all have beliefs that largely determine the direction of our lives.

When we believe something to be true, what we see in the world supports that.

If we don’t believe something to be in line with our thoughts, that closes the door for us to even look at opportunities in that area.

The bottom line is we all see information in our environment that supports our beliefs.

Looking at your beliefs and letting go of the ones that hold you back is what this video is all about.
