Revolutionize your Riding Workshop Sept 15 North Brookfield, MA
The harmonious flow of movement may be impeded by energetic blocks in the rider, the horse or the field between them.
When placing one’s attention on body parts, structural alignment or fixing something that is not working it can often create other compensatory blockages.
In this clinic Farah DeJohnette and Dr. Catherine Hondorp will analyze the flow between horse and rider after Dr Hondorp has done Entrainments on each participant. Using both their collective “Eyes” Seeing where connection to flow is blocked, they offer each rider an individualized assessment.
Utilizing focus not force and an experiential sense of the six primary directions, they will offer tools to enhance harmonious movement and use of position through horse and rider. By having 2 Entrainments (Body work) by Dr. Hondorp, you will experience a leap forward in shifting long standing patterns for you and your horse.
