Both horse and rider want the same thing: TO FEEL SAFE and RELAXATION.
As a rider we wish for a horse that feels light and responsive to the aids and doesn’t react to external stimuli.
We can teach our horses to stay calm and relaxed when they see or hear novel and scary objects. As soon as the horse knows the situation is not threatening, there is no reason for flight or fight.
It is a combination of obedience: consistent training of the leg, rein and voice aids AND teaching your horse to relax his body and mind so he can feel safe and comfortable.
Relaxation is necessary to move supple, think clear and concentrate on the rider instead of the environment. And it’s the same for the rider, of course. If you feel tense and insecure you will pass it on to your horse, it’s a vicious circle…
Do you have a spooky horse? Do you get inscecure in a new environment, when there is noise, on a competition, … don’t hesitate to contact me. Together we will work on confidence and relaxation.
Ik heb de begeleiding van magali ervaren als een echte verrijking, ook naar het werk met mijn andere paarden toe. Een aanrader voor elke ruiter, ook zonder “probleempaarden”.
