In a combination of yoga based exercises we carefully create individual programmes for riders who want to improve their seat and aids. The riders body and fitness decides how easy it
is to perform any type of riding. The unique approach where Rider Fitness and Coordination
is developed from the ground and the transferred to the saddle through our intense seat-training lessons on highly trained Lusitanos is - in our opinion - the best and only way for the rider to improve. You can only learn to ride in the saddle - but you can improve as a rider from the ground.
In a herd of horses there is not only one leader. They are all collectively responsible for looking out for danger and keeping the herd safe. In todays connected era there is never one person who can know it all or be responsible for all. A leader today must make his "herd" collectively look out for eachother and grow as a team. It is not so important what the leader says, as how he says it in the way it is perceived. We look to the horses to
teach modern day leaders, as horses are a powerful mirror that will teach the leader about his communication and way of being perceived. Without words horses can show rather than tell.
For a long time people have been pushed to "do more" and todays result is a growing number of people with mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, depression and burn-outs. As humans we have grown out of balance, and we need to find our own true balance again. It may be different to each of us,
but understanding the tools to maintain a healthy life balance, reduce stress and mental health risk factors are one of the many things our Horse Facilitated programmes offer. The horse will guide you and our coaches will give you the tools to a better life in true balance
"The growing field of emotional intelligence (EI) and neuroscience, highlights the need for leaders to develop solid interpersonal and relationship skills in order to become proficient in harnessing the complexities of the modern world."
