What is Conscious Movement?


Conscious movement is exactly what it says on the tin, movement through conscious awareness. Or another way of putting it being totally present as our bodies move and feeling the whole process.



And why for riders?

Because the way we move, breathe and even think directly affects the way the horse behaves, from the aid we apply whilst riding to the speed and depth of our breath the horse feels and picks up on it all, so when we move unconsciously, when our mind is elsewhere or we’re not connected to what our body fully feels like we are at risk of giving our horses mixed signals, of not picking up on signals that our horses are giving back to us, and if ultimately making it harder for our horses to understand what we are trying to say to them.
