Horse Riding:
The dialogue between two bodies and souls, 
which aims to reach the perfect
harmony between them.
- Waldemar Seunig

 

In his quote, Seunig is putting each riders goals in a nutshell. Riding is a dance between to bodies, and especially the moveability of the rider's hip and pelvis are essential to reach that goal.

But, honestly -

In our often quite busy daily life we often loose the for ourselves and our body. How difficult is it than to develop suppleness and awareness for another body, and even more, to understand how these two bodies interact?

Therefore, we will spend a whole week in September with a special focus on that topic, as well from groundwork as from a riding perspective.
