How the Equestrian FEEL has been mythicized to be something “only for the chosen” and talented people?
When people don’t know the reason why something becomes possible, they like to invent some superstitions and myths explaining why something is working or not.
When things look the same from the outside, but are very different in the inside, it is very easy to lose access to the core essence of the experience.
Equestrian Feel is based on FEELING. To have equestrian feeling it is enough for you to awaken your feel and the feel of your horse.
Horses respond to the FEEL, not to the cues taught by repetitions. If you want your horse to respond only to the receptions, you have to kill in your horse the feel and ability to connect with you. To put it in simple words: if you wish your horse to respond ONLY to the cues, you have to kill in your horse his awareness and innocence.
• A horse without the FEEL won’t be able to express BEAUTY in his movements.
• A horse without the FEEL won’t be able to more in LIGHTNESS.
• A horse without the FEEL won’t be able to TEACH YOU about lightness, connection and feel.
Your body also responds to the FEEL, not to the techniques. Your body doesn’t care about what you think and what you imagine. Your body doesn’t care about the knowledgeable skills you may have acquired. Your body does care for you to be connected, in order to maintain the FEEL. Your body will be disconnecting whenever connection is not possible. And what blocks the connection is repetitions and actions taken from the level of the mind.
You can Awaken Your Equestrian Feel only when you awaken the awareness of your own body. And this is the first step. It will enliven your Life. The second step is to learn how you can directly experience the flow of the regain awareness from your body to the body of your horse. This is the most incredible and amazing experience one can imagine. It’s mesmerizing, deep and full of love. It literally feels like being plugged in to the body of your horse and in your body you can directly feel all that bothers your horse and dims the lights of his true potential.
BodyMarc Duo has been already experienced by many of OneHorseLife Students, and their experiences are beautiful, honest and very moving. From allowing deeper connection, first hugs and moments of calmness spent with a previously uneasy and “ants-in-pants” kind of horse, through new dressage experiences emerging from this state spontaneously and increased calmness and connection during the hacks to true moments of shared healing while supporting horses during lameness, colic.
