Riding together as one being takes real harmony between horse and rider. And it is important to both beauty and harmony with our horse that we understand the Comfort Zone model all the way to our bones and on auto pilot.
This Lesson also contains an important insight for those riders who are interested in the relationship between excitement and power and a Comfort Zone with high energy, which would include dressage and showjumping riders, those who ride cutting horses or do reining competitions, working equitation, campdrafters, all those who work with cattle and more that I probably haven’t thought of…
This Lesson is so pivotal to this course that if you have any doubts or questions, make sure that you come back to me – on the live seminars or in the Student Forum. There’s also some important notes I make in the related lesson links below the video.
Remember the lesson numbers are irrelevant? The video repeatedly refers this lesson.

The Comfort Zone Model – Because you want to spending the majority of your time humming with happiness and connection in their Comfort Zone, using your Not Quite Right feelings to back off and wait for the Chew.
Because you want to be getting clearer and clearer about ALL the ways that you uniquely experience that early warning signal – worrying; stuck, flat, stagnant or even explosive energy; fear, anxiety, frustration or other emotions, physical tension, discomfort or even pain, a rapid heartbeat or tension in your breath, breathing faster.
Understanding the gift in the different horse personalities – because you want to be clear that the different personalities behave differently when they are out of the Comfort Zone. To achieve what you’re looking for, you want to be going by your FEEL, before your eyes – because the Caretakers specially don’t give you so much with your eyes.
