In the last episode, we launched into the topic of biomechanics and how understanding the role of the conscious and unconscious brain in movement can empower us to find a different way of moving and being in the saddle that sits outside of the traditional riding lesson model.
One of the things I find challenging about these conversations is that the work I practice is highly experiential and so explaining things from a purely cognitive or “thinking about it” perspective can make it difficult to appreciate what I’m going on about.
With that in mind, when I recorded today’s podcast I had it in mind that you could ride along with me- a ride along audio session- so if you want to do that, you’ll need to grab a pair of blue tooth ear buds or a speaker, your phone with this podcast on it and set yourself up so you can listen to it while you ride.
We cover some basic terms at the start and then launch into the practice together!
Along with the ridden practice, in this session we also discuss:
– Movement arcs and their role in movement in the parasympathetic system
– The basic anatomy of your centreline, and how to use your centreline to match the balance point of your horse
I hope you enjoy it!
