MC Horsemanship advocates an approach to riding that encourages understanding, patience, and compassion for horse and rider. We inspire you to successfully pursue your riding dreams. Treat your soul and body to our approach to horsemanship. This will expand your possibilities for success as you cultivate your skills in a safe, pleasurable, and progressive manner. Whether you ride for pleasure, sport, or art MC Horsemanship offers a new learning path and guides you to integrate your body and mind with those of the horse. This fresh, inspiring program can help transform unfavorable habits into favorable ones along the path to the fulfillment of your riding and life goals and dreams.
The time may come when you notice that your riding habits have changed for the better while working with MC Horsemanship. The boundaries between you and your horse will begin to blur. You may discover that "suddenly" you are able to breath deeply and smoothly in any situation that had previously caused you to hold your breath. Perhaps you will become conscious of Good Energy surrounding you while you ride in sync with the horse. When these realizations occur, let your spirits soar in celebration of this powerful sense of Absolute Union between good energy, you, your horse. Perhaps your tamed spirit may become wild or your wild spirit tame.
Your new skills may occasionally slip during the periods of difficulty, frustration, or stress that trigger your body and mind instinctively to old, ingrained habits and responses. Do not be discouraged, but embrace it as a natural part of your learning process. Persevere and continue to trust yourself and your developing skills. Know that with practice, you will consistently establish relaxation, flow, and connection with the horse.
The most important thing to remember while practicing Horsemanship is to HAVE FUN! Like riding, good energy is a gift you give to yourself. Allow the qualities of your rides to heighten the experiences of discovery, depth, and delight that enrich your precious time spent with horses. We think you will find that good energy and riding will nurture one another, nourishing your body, mind, and spirit in the process. Good Energy makes a Good Horse!
