Melin about Connected Riding
Connected Riding helps me to have the purpose to bring awareness and responsability in the horse world. After doing a lot of courses of horsemanship, I felt clearly that I improve the understanding and handling of horses, but I didn’t have the same sensation while riding. I love dressage and I trained with different dressage teachers, yet I was frustrated because the feeling of it with my horses did not feel right to me to do dressage in that way.
Connected Riding provides me with a set of teaching tools to understand what horses need to be able to be ridden in a biomechanical way and really achieve synchronization with their movements. Now I understand how to train a horse to the foundational principles of dressage, my focus is not the goal to do a test, is the training process I do to achieve it.
It’s a path of life that brings awareness in body, mind, and spirit to connect with horses, and all is very logical, kind, and through Connection, you open a big window to have marvelous sensations with horses.
