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 with teaching by distance – me in Australia and Mel in England.
Does the Person Heal the Horse or the Horse Heal the Person?
The Healing of Pye focuses on the healing of Pye’s badly damaged back – but Pye wasn’t the only one in that partnership who was doing dramatic healing.
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 here 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 just in case the pop-up doesn’t pop up. 🙂 )
+ 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 relationship and connection you have with your horse can profoundly influence the health and happiness of both you and your horse.
+ 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 was absolutely and authentically relaxed and happy herself– 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.
That’s a BIG question and I’d love to hear what you think about it so please leave me a comment below. I reply to all comments so I look forward to seeing you there!
The Key to the Kingdom of Horses is an introduction to Feel for your horse that is the key to everything excellent and beautiful with a horse. You’ll find it and our other Training Programs to support you to make this kind of radical change for you and your own horse here.
