What’s the common thread between being a brilliant horse rider and being a brilliant golfer?
Last week I had an interesting session helping a golfer phenomenally improve his golf swing – phenomenally.
And I know absolutely “zip” about golf – nada – nothing at all.
So what IS the common thread between being a brilliant horse rider and being a brilliant golfer that enabled me to help this guy improve his golf swing?
It was teaching him to listen deep inside and how to get the biofeedback from his own body, so that his own body could tell him what to change in his swing.
And wow… that did happen. The power of his swing was phenomenal. And when the change in position happens in inner awareness like this – then change itself is effortless.
I was prompted to have a go at helping this guy because he was talking about how his golf game went backwards after every lesson and that he had to work like crazy incorporating the new stuff into improving his game. And that this is an accepted thing that happens in golfing lessons.
Hmmm… well it doesn’t have to be like that when you listen to your own body – whether it’s golf or horse riding. In the place of inner awareness that I teach people, the change to being a brilliant rider is step by step – simple, easy – re-programming your body to be naturally in a position that is effective and useful to staying on the back of that horse in deep comfort.
And at the moment you get that brilliant riding position from the on line course Fast Track to Brilliant Riding but watch this space for more…
And in the meantime, send me your golfing buddies who seriously want to improve their golf swing!
