a magic bond

Connecting with horses
by giving choices!

“The more connected we are with our horse – the less equipment and force we need to use when riding or handling. In fact everything becomes easy, with tack or without. I am often told that riding horses is very hard. A complicated task that takes years of practice to master. I can agree that controlling and micromanaging horses is complicated, but who says that`s the way it should be done in the first place?”

State of mind

Horses are capable of using their bodies in a functional way, without being micromanaged.

If we just let them!

The horses state of mind affects how they use their body. When their minds are happy and relaxed, their bodies take a functional shape with natural self-carriage and hind leg engagement.
