The position of your body and the tension that you carry while you are riding transfers into the horse. If you hold any part of your body rigid while you ride due to fear, pain, or anxiety, your horse will sense this and tense his body. Likewise, if your body is out of alignment while you ride, your horse will mirror this impaired alignment.
For the Rider, keeping your body in alignment is essential for effective communication to your horse, thus the position of your pelvis is cruitial!
Both horse and rider are susceptible to each others imbalances so treating the combination elicits the best results.
“I wish I could have known about this profound bodywork while I was competing my own horses or riding polo horses. I would have been able to help a lot of sore horses! I look forward to talking with you to discuss your horses’ needs.” – Gillian Hansen
