What does it really feel like to have a deep connection with your horse?
Finding the right words to accurately describe this extraordinary feeling is challenging, so let’s start with what it does not feel like.
It does not feel like you have to push or use a lot of leg to get your horse going.
It does not feel like you can’t slow your horse down or stop.
It does not feel like you’re afraid your horse might “do something.”
When you ride your horse with a deep connection, you want to know your horse is truly with you in mind, body, and spirit, not just obediently going through the motions or understanding what you’re asking for on a surface level.
