Your position in riding is everything. It will either allow things to eventuate through training with ease or it will create repeated struggle.
When riding, the front is a mirror reflection of the hind. In life what is happening outside of you is a mirror reflection of what is happening inside of you.
When something is showing up in the front when riding, that you wish to change, you can’t change it through the reflection, you must go to what is creating the reflection.
Every decision you continually make, conscious or unconscious, to either act or not to act, are determining the responses we get back from our horse and our life.
Some of what you read in this article may be challenging for some. To understand these questions it will help to come to take the view that our lives are a complete mirror image reflecting back to us in detail, showing us to ourselves.
To understand this we need to remember that all of our individual lives – seen from our own perspectives no matter how many people, places, things or events that they consist of, are always a reflection of us.

Thank you to Jan and Frank from Stoneleigh Equestrian Centre, for their hospitality and always friendly and supportive nature. To Jillian Drew for another beautiful lunch and again bringing people together for the day. I really enjoyed speaking to you all 🙂
The horse first teachers us to be the leader of them to help us become the leader of our mind. To focus the mind, to create, not to be the victim of our thoughts, feelings and actions.
They are the doorway that they carry us through to change our state of awareness.
Wolfgang Kutting, a brilliant rider that has a profound connection to horses in the art of Dressage, describes this unity of a teacher with a horse in a beautiful way. In a translation ‘Horse and Trainer see as one’. Both horse and trainer tune together as one to work in enlightening the rider.
