We’ve had a number of badly damaged sway backs dramatically come back to normal in clinics, but this is the first one captured on video and it was achieved in an on-line clinic – me in Australia and Mel in England.
Healing is multi-layered with horsemanship and our Feel for a horse
This video shows a real life example of what I keep saying – that emotional stress causes muscular tension that pulls bones and joints out of place. And that when we REVERSE that process – i.e. fix the emotional stresses – we can and do, heal the physical problems that they caused.
It is PROFOUND…
Watch Mel’s video that she produced during and after one of my online clinics and then we’ll talk about the rich, multi layered healing that took place – and of Mel’s keys to success in transforming a bucking, rearing, biting, emotionally and physically damaged horse.
Keys to Success & Healing Insights
(Please note that I talk on the video about the FREE LESSONS The 9 Keys to Happiness with Your Horse. I updated that training 10 years later, with the video The Key to the Kingdom of Horses. I’ve put a link below in case you haven’t seen it.
+ Mel discovered a new level of confidence in her own abilities as she came to understand her unique feel for others as a beautiful gift, instead of the burden and problem that it had previously been.
When we haven’t learned how to use our natural talent for connection, we all experience some degree of struggle. But to deeply sensitive people this can be an almost crippling burden – so recognizing and unfolding that natural talent and developing it can be an experience in freedom, delight and incredible healing.
For Mel, that realization of her natural talent for connection to others, has opened up a whole new world of enjoyable life experience for her. By understanding and using her own feelings as inner guidance, she was able to help Pye and herself in transforming BOTH their lives.
+ The confidence that Pye developed with Mel who HE started to see HER using her sensitivity for his benefit was, I believe, the biggest key to success with healing his back. The emotional stresses that came from being so misunderstood, had actually caused his back problems and were systematically released at each step of him feeling “heard”.
+ For Mel and Pye, taking away all the force that he had experienced previously allowed him to find a trust in Mel that cut through his chronic stress and tension that had been a significant cause of that terrible back damage. “BE the change that you want your horse to be” was a big deal for Mel in recognizing how to get him to do things without force.
Mel wanted a happy relaxed horse, so she had to find a place where she herself was absolutely and authentically relaxed and happy – she WAS the change that she wanted Pye to be. And this relaxation can’t be faked, you can’t pretend and have this work – it has to be AUTHENTIC – and the process of finding that relaxation and happiness was phenomenally healing for Mel as well.
+ Mel learned HOW to listen to him in her own unique way and how to use that to RELEASE stress and tension that had caused the damage to his body.
Releasing mental and emotional stress and tension caused physical healing to happen. I’ve seen it over and over again.
Do you want this kind of healing for your horse too?
As you’ve been looking around the website, have you noticed that all these gorgeous things happening with horse health and behavior aren’t just about your horse? Have you noticed it’s about YOUR journey to a wonderful life as well? Ahhh what a gift horses are!
A recent photo of Pye and Mel just uploaded to Facebook- that rearing, bucking, dangerously biting and attacking terror is a thing of the past. Well done Mel and Pye!
