Can your horse do “right” or “wrong”?

A student said to me: “ I have started to play with the canter by hand, but my horse is not doing it right at all. I think I am maybe not doing it right either, so maybe we should not do it at all? “

I said: “One could imagine that there is not existing right and wrong with horses? Of course we prepare the horse well physical and mental for everything we ask him for. But what you call “wrong” we could call training and what you call “right” we could call leading or dancing with the horse. Horses do not judge in right or wrong they just experience and do!… This is one of the things we can learn from them.

Best wishes to you all.

Timeless knowlegde.

“As the blind person touches the object before him very softly and lightly with his fingertips in order not to interfere with the work of the sensitive nerve ends by too much pressure, so it is the rider’s first obligation to keep soft and natural those parts of his body with which he feels his horse.” Gustav Steinbrecht.

These words describes the core in my “Balance, Feel, Ask -Riders seat program” for the seat education in the Academic Art of Riding.

You can soon read all about my new education program in my coming free e-book.  So keep a eye on

Best wishes to you from

The path of the Horse

I want to share this great film with you. I loved this documentary, since I first bought it years ago! (They put it on youtube themselves, so not an illegal YT-leak.

Another great “Riders seat” clinic with big changes!

Inviting Mira to use her left hind leg

Yesterday I had a clinic near Odense (Fyn). We discovered so many important things who made a big change!. All the riders develop very very nice during the day and did a great job:-). The riders got tips, exercises, and new feelings with them home which improve their riding and their position in general. Thy got able to sit on the horse in completely balance with no “over-tension” anywhere. And then we saw the the movement of the horse go nicely through the hips, knees, feet, lower-back, chest, shoulders, neck. 🙂

Thanks too all the participants for a great day:-)
