Description

Riding is a dynamic process of action…..balance….stillness.  More than technique or a set of rules, the art and language of riding is a dynamic, continuous interaction between rider and horse. Equestrians will experience and explore their balance, postural dynamics and body mechanics with Feldenkrais movement lessons. Through demonstrations using dressage and western saddles, unmounted riders will have the opportunity to take the lessons from internal learning to actual experience in the saddle.

This workshop is applicable to equestrians of any discipline or ability level.
