Practical and technical activities: approach to the horse from the ground and its management, communication, transmission of trust and relationship with the horse, balance, harmony in the saddle and the three gaits.
The preparatory activity is based on three principles:
The horse has always triggered in man a sort of strange charm, of magic, of attraction. Often, however, especially in a society like ours where competition and appearance are priorities, we forget the fundamental principles of this animal.
The respect for the animal and the ability to communicate with him are primordial, as the use of its own language with his peers. These principles are the basis of an approach built on reciprocal trust and respect.
In order to achieve this result, the human being must understand and use the horse’s language, unlock his heart and enter into the specific philosophy of life of those who live in packs in order to survive, of those who are the prey, not the predator, with hierarchies that are established time after time.
It is an incredibly fascinating and captivating philosophy of life, which allows you to know truly yourself, in order to develop your sensitivity, to meet face-to-face a living being so different to yourself, and to establish a relationship of loyal, reciprocal friendship that constantly grows.
The human being is endowed with the ability to reason, to decide according to circumstances and according to his goal to be achieved. In this case, we will no longer speak of survival instinct but of mind, of will.
Our minds are able to influence our lives, and even the physical reactions of our bodies; for example, when we speak about psychosomatic disorders. We are, therefore, able to understand how to be strong and determined.
In any sport, as in daily life, in work, and at school, the correct use of our will can lead us to achieve unexpected results.
I like to call this power the “power of intention”. It is about jumping over the obstacle and seeing ourselves; the horse has already seen it, with the inner confidence to know that this is the way it is.
It is very difficult to explain in just a few lines but I think that working in the right way everybody can learn how to channel and develop the power we have in every aspect of our lives, and above all where relationships are concerned.
This is a question of experience that is gained by approaching the horse in the correct, responsible manner, and the ability to handle the animal in different aspects of life: in the daily routine, and in the emergency. It is also But it is also fundamental possessing the knowledge of the specific techniques for the discipline that you have chosen. All these aspects allow you to embrace your passion by reducing the risks and having fun.
It is obvious that choosing a discipline and perfecting your specific technique can take place if a solid base already exists, like for example the relationship with the horse starting from the ground, the harmony with him with regard to the three gaits, and if we already know which sport we wish to take up that should not be dictated by fashion, but rather be a choice based on what the horse is looking to infuse in order to make us experience, to make us dream.
My goal is to provide you with all the basic knowledges to allow you to consciously choose which discipline you want to pursue with your new friend with the purpose to let out that part of yourself made of attitudes, sensations and hidden dreams that is within each of us.
