It may seem a strange question, I have given much thought to how I can help to guide others to the level of relationship I share with my horses and how I can share the experience of truly experiencing our horse. Not training, not doing something, sharing a presence with our horse.
I can look back to the experience I shared today with my lovely Noonoo riding her. I can look forward to the next experience we may share. However there is nothing like the moment when I am not thinking about it but ‘feeling’ it, the moment when it is not a thought, it is not about judging how good the canter transition was or planning on how to improve the next one. It is ‘feeling’ this one right now. Come on play with this, then play with feeling the next moment.
It may be easier to start to experience your horse while sitting sharing territory, it can be difficult to be present to the moment, however if we stop our mental chatter, well that’s not easy! maybe more allow thoughts to come and go and start to feel the experience of being with our horse, not dwelling in our thoughts, instead allowing the experience to happen. Letting our senses perceive without a mental comment. Even for a moment. While we put into words what happened we are not observing with our presence what is being experienced now.
Oh my it is something to experience, don’t miss it, it could be your horse is the ride of your life. enter their world, the world of feeling and experiencing now. We can even ask our horse how is the world for you now, how does it feel to be you, right now. Wait and feel. How does it feel to be me with you right now. I hope you have a great experience with it.
No pictures this week, it is all about feeling. I would love to know your experience of this. Of course then it will be a thought, a memory of what was an experience in the moment felt by you and your horse.
