Hi. Today I like to tell you some more about the amazing journey we have been travelling in my Fall and Winter Program. The curriculum is designed to prepare the mind to step aside and let go of the need to make sense of anything and to return to the child mind and become truly present.
In general, humans have lost their ability to be present in the moment whereas horses are naturally present and because of this gap, a working bond cannot spring forth. By taking the time to become truly present to the moment is one of the many ways horses can elevate the human spirit. Once this present-ness is obtained, natural skills of connection with horses spring forth and the Rituals seem natural and easily understood. When this happens I then provide the class with all the Rituals and how to use them to develop a working bond.
