Today’s lesson – Where to from here?
The recipe you’ve been given in this course WILL give you the ability to ride as one being with your horse and WILL give you the amazingly beautiful circuit of energy and the deep connection and Presence between you and your horse that the great Riding Masters talk of.
For those who want to trail ride happily or ride bridle-less, that circuit of energy will hum gently. For dressage riders, the power of that circuit of energy for the dance, is going to knock your socks off. For those who are looking for the finesse of reining, the power and speed of a cross country course, the one-beingness of cattle work, then hang on to your hats.
Whatever discipline you ride in – you are already on a journey to be world class horsewomen and men and I wish you much fun and lightness of heart and spirit on that journey.
I know that some of you have found that deep, deep connection already.
Others will have more change places for yourself and /or more change places with your horse to make, before you can really feel it happening.
If the circle of energy is what you want, if riding your horse as one being is what you want – then you WILL get it as you keep listening inside and taking whatever action is necessary to follow the joy and eliminate every source of Not Quite Right for you and your horse.
Slowing down and re-programming your horse’s reactions in the picnic table and your own reactions while riding your horse grazing, will be the source of great leaps forwards and a fast track towards brilliance in your riding and I can’t recommend it too highly.
Whether you’ve found that OMGod place yet or not, one thing is for sure. (I used the God word on purpose and I used it filled with good feeling and gratitude.) Whether you’ve found that OMGod place yet or not, whether you found that filled with wonder place with your horse yet or not – one thing is for sure – we are all on the journey of life and that journey isn’t going to stop.
You could leave horses tomorrow and you would still be on that wonderful journey.
You can change horses and you will still be on that wonderful journey.
You will always be creating new goals and dreams.

WRITTEN VERSION OF THE AUDIO
About 5 years ago, I dreamed of riding a bridle-less piaffe – nothing at all on my horses head.
Even way back then, I could feel that Bobby and I had the first baby steps of every element that we needed, I could see the road we needed to travel and it was exciting to think about and dream.
Unbeknownst to me back then, the circuit of powerful and joyful energy was a missing piece – and this course as it has developed, has provided that piece.
OMGod that amazing ride on Bobby when I found it. Doing it on my horse – melting off every block with a conversation with my spine and pelvis, not allowing him to hit a solid rein, but allowing him to take up the flexion of my spine and pelvis – my soapy bones just happening, my joints all sliding automatically while the flexion was happening.
Now I’ve personally found and ridden the circuit of powerful energy with Bobby – this middle aged overweight and unathletic rider has ridden the holy grail of dressage riders everywhere and I have ridden it on a 21 year old horse who still has a touch of arthritis that I am working on getting rid of. (Actually at later editing he’s now 24 and we still have it…) (Later edit, he retired at 27 and died at 30.)
I am telling you that if I can do it absolutely anyone can.
If I hang on to this bridle-less piaffe dream, if I want to move forward from where I am now, to my bridle-less piaffe, I am going to have to get fitter for one thing. I am also going to have to get back some of my younger flexibility so that I can ride the power as we build it together – so there are still some more change places ahead for me if I find the passionate inspiration to continue on to this dream.
For you, on your journey, your dreams are different to mine.
Like me though, I expect that some of your change places will be easy and some of them will be hard.
But one thing is for sure – with everything that you have learned on this course, the change places won’t need to be taking years any more.
Let me take this opportunity one more time, to draw to your attention the keys to your success:
Following your good feeling Feelings, listening and taking action on all five feelings of EVERY Not Quite Right. I can tell you right now – even today as I write this – that this is a journey with many, many layers to it.
Knowing that it’s not necessarily yours and looking for what you need to know or do to clear it. It is sooo… easy in some circumstances to assume that it’s ours and rush off on the wrong track – I was doing that only yesterday and shook my head when I eventually realised what was happening.
Paying attention to those Not Quite Rights wherever in your life they are cropping up. A good friend of mine once said of those outside influences on our horsemanship – when the vacuum cleaner is going, you can’t hear the phone ringing. Well, when we turn the vacuum cleaner off – when we pay attention and clean up the loud Not Quite Rights in OTHER parts of our lives too, we CAN hear our horses on the other end of the phone. Aren’t we horse people particularly blessed to be doing something that brings such happiness to ALL parts of our lives?
Soaking in the good stuff, noticing and appreciating and giving thanks for the good feelings and the good times and nurturing those in our horse too – throughout this course, you have been creating a rolling wave of good stuff happening so that you can attract MORE of that good stuff.
Listening and paying attention to and accepting the feedback from our horse about what has to change to reach our dream together. It is with such pleasure that I have been hearing throughout the course, that you are genuinely knowing that your horses ARE helping you on that journey and that problems that arise with your horse really ARE just an opportunity to change something and take another step closer to your dream.
And biggest of all, biggest of all the keys to success so far and the key to your success in the future is the inner awareness that you have been developing, the world class Feel that you have been developing because of it, the ability to look inside yourself, to FEEL inside yourself and find the perfect answers for you and your horse.
I look forward to keeping in touch with you.
I look forward to hearing and watching you reach your dreams with your horse and I look forward to hearing about the new dreams too.
So stay in touch with this lovely family we have created here and enjoy the rest of this wonderful journey with your horse.
