How to Connect with Your Horse in the Saddle

Over the past two months, I developed 12 exercises you can do with your horse to develop more feel and connection. It’s called Well CONNECTED.

As in all of my courses, I open and close them. On Tuesday, November 10th I’m going to wrap up access to this course.

Today’s video is a summary of the key points of that course. I think you’ll find a lot of good ideas to help you connect more with your horse.


VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Over the past two months, I developed 12 exercises you can do with your horse to develop more feel and connection. It’s called Well CONNECTED.

As in all of my courses, I open and close them. On November 10th I’m going to wrap up access to this course.

Sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what’s in a course… so I thought for this week, I would give you a sneak peek into the exercises… along with lots of great information because I think you’ll find these tips interesting, no matter what kind of riding you do.

Step one is to get grounded before you ever go to the barn… and then stay grounded for the entire ride.

Step two is connecting to the thought of what you want to do.

Step three is to really look and see where you are going with your eyes up at all times.

Step four is to feel and engage your seat.

Step five is to breathe.

Step six is to understand the impact… and fun… of bringing your energy up and down as you ride.

Step seven is to understand more about cueing. For example, your hands are not really cues but support… and ideally the last thing you go to after you have engaged.

In Well Connected, we go step-by-step through the function of your legs and your hands and how to use them… again after you have become grounded; set an intention; kept your eyes up; engaged your seat; kept breathing, and methodically used your communicative cues.

For all of the different steps, we also explore some of the common challenges we all experience and some helpful solutions.

So, that’s the sneak peek into Well Connected. It’s available until November 10th. Join us!

Leave a comment for me and let me know if you found the tips in this video helpful. I always love to hear from you!

  2. Thank you for the nice little review and a nice list and breif video. I have printed out each of your downloads and put them into a little binder which has been very helpful in that way I will be able to go back to those for review and practice. Really appreciate how you chunked everything
    Small manageable pieces.
