Jillian about Connected Riding
"In my lifetime of working with horses I was aware of how my mental and physical states affected the horse, but made no real use of that information. With Connected Riding and Groundwork I was given permission to make that reciprocity central to the relationship. It was also a hugely different way for me to experience my own body as a rider. All of this was a paradigm shift in the way that I looked at horses, and because it was such a different way of experiencing horses, it led me on this incredible journey of discovery to learn absolutely all that I can about them, and to advocate for their well-being."
