HORSE HOLIDAY CONNECTIONS 

Soft Touch Horsemanship The Mind Body Connection  

~~By God's Directions.  This is His Program--not ours!~~

 

 

 

 

 Mind Body Connection for horse and rider program

It's Freedom, un-bridled.

 Some thoughts for 'riders' --a mouth full! (bear with me here!)

Time and time again --I see riders/owners 'tighten' the bridle, girth, --to the point of DISCOMFORT --for the horse.  

Girths are SO TIGHT they are almost brittle, to touch.

When placing your fingers to 'feel' the tension there, the horse can hardly breathe! 

Ladies, do you want to wear a bra, without any elastic --real tight?  Try it!  You may find what that tight 'girth' feels like.

(Yeah but, they're a horse!)   ---YEAH BUT!  YEAH BUTT --DO NOT ASSUME!

And BRIDLES!  They are pulled up SO TIGHT into the horses mouth they almost GAG!

 I have seen so many riders/owners tighten the bridle to a horse's face,

and lift the bit to the (so-called) ‘PROPER’ -- two wrinkles, above the bit --maybe even three!

This leaves me wanting to put a bit into that owner/rider's mouth, and making THEM wear it for a month!

AND, those XX DROPPED NOSEBANDS! --used to keep a horse from opening his mouth!  

  Horse's are ‘entitled’ to open their mouth --to YAWN, -to BREATHE, when they wear a bridle!  That should be a RIGHT of life!

I am NOT saying that there are times that tack must be adjusted for particular purposes,

however, PRIME horseman are setting examples that the un-educated will unfortunately follow.  

  COPY-CAT  Riders, visually COPY what they 'see' higher level riders do. 

They may not even have a clue, WHY those tactics are used, when, or why!  They see it done, so they COPY!

 I have watched many horses struggle with their headgear, and am sickened by this un-educated use or technique.

Let's stop equipment over-use and abuse to the horse!  

What is so difficult, are the ones who are teaching --or giving those riding lessons, who may not even know why this is being done.  You will see their students, using techniques that are FAR from ready for.

PROPER EDUCATION --IS THE KEY!

I am doing what I can to open the eyes of ANY RIDER, to seek better understanding of the horse,

and to seek the better riding teacher --not an INSTRUCTOR, but a TEACHER, or Coach. 

You should know WHY a technique is being used!  

STOP BLAMING EVERYTHING ON THE HORSE! 

Humans create MANY problems for the horse --who will respond --good or bad!

.ONE MORE THING.  Shouldn't we accept some of the blame for their behavior?

Shouldn't we seek MORE KNOWLEDGE?  Shouldn't WE get answers to our questions?

Shouldn't we STOP just doing as the instructors tell us to do, because --they say "THAT IS HOW IT'S DONE"? 

 NO,  I DO NOT accept what does NOT seem kind to the horse!

NO,  I DO NOT believe the horse is 'ALWAYS AT FAULT'!

I DO BELIEVE there is a lot to learn, AND a lot to teach! 

There has DEFINITELY been a lot --LEFT OUT of Traditional RIDING 'INSTRUCTION'!

OH MY!  ANOTHER thing.  Becoming Certified as a Riding Instructor. 

DO THEY ALSO INCLUDE, knowing the horse, from their point of view, --OR,

do you ONLY get certified, for knowing WHAT, and HOW, it 'should be' done,

--according to traditional (teaching/coaching) (OOPS!)--INSTRUCTION!

The 'GET-UP and GO theories are NOT what makes the better rider. 

 EDUCATED EXPERIENCES DO! 

Find the BEST Teacher/Coach you can afford!

OH MY GOD!  --One more thing! 

HOW on earth do we open the dialog for those beginners, and their instructors to want to do better, to know MORE?

Perhaps this 74 yr. 'old' (--HA!) --can ruffle the feathers of those who need them --ruffled?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I ask --the 'Real Horseman' out there.  (You know who you are)

PLEASE Bear with me, --as I try to lift expectations of new riders,

and try to create the teachers for discussion, and enlightenment.

I want the horse to be happy, treated well, and not abused!

God Bless the horseman -athletic 'trainer' --who know what they are doing. 

Those who don't, --I'm ruffling your feathers as well.  ---Smile!  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

YES, there are MANY WAYS to do MANY things with a horse.

I am pushing this apple, to keep you CONSCIOUS of the INNER HORSE! (Enough!)

It hurts ME --to see what humans make horses go through!

INSTRUCTORS,  TAKE A DEEPER LOOK AT WHAT YOU have been DOING!

 NOW THYSELF, --and PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE HORSE'S NEEDS!

The horse is victim to humans --sooner or later!

Let's change that!
