I see many people looking for the new direction in their horsemanship. They have skills and knowledge, but they see how these skills and knowledge disconnect them from their horses. They feel that the answer is connection, so they replace with connection everything that they knew and did, and that was discovered in horse training before them.
When we know how to act, and we have many skills we still can act from connection.
For example: when you decide what to eat you can use all your knowledge about food and nutrition, and still be connected with your body to feel what will be good for you in the given moment. On the other hand, when you decide what to eat by looking into the past, and by following the patterns, and rules coming from the information about food – you use your skills, and knowledge to disconnect from your body.
The same situation applies to the HORSE TRAINING:
You can have very big knowledge about horse training, ways and techniques, and still act from the level of connection with your horse. To do this, you simply use all your skills, and knowledge about horse training to connect with your horse even more.
When you do this, all your skills RISE TO THE NEW POWER.
They gain new meaning, and can be used now in a new, even deeper way. You look into everything you know, have read, have seen and have tried and through connection with your horse you pick the pieces that are best to fulfill the goals of the given moment, and that you know will take your relationship with your horse to an even deeper ground.
