We are all focused on our horses’ well-being. Tack fit, nutritional needs, fitness, massage, training… no topic is too minute for the caring horseman to address.
All too often we fail to turn this discerning focus onto ourselves. Sally Swift, founder of Centered Riding (TM) pointed out that when we are working to evoke change in another, whether it is our student, our horse (or even our spouse!), that change comes about most effortlessly when 80% of our focus remains on evoking that same change within ourselves.
I just stumbled across this great acupressure resource. As stretching and bodywork for the horses are vital pieces of my daily training routine, I’m excited to find simple, parallel exercises I can do for myself.
