Step 1:

Once you are able to communicate to the horse in his language that you are his trusted leader by controlling his feet, his mind softens and he becomes your trusting and willing partner. It is in this softened state of mind that you are able to control your horses body, legs and feet to obtain the shapes of the horse that you desire-without stress or force.

Step 2:

First we use body language on the ground to communicate with our horse in a language he understands. We then communicate with the horse via a corridor of pressures and the timing of releases of those pressures to obtain the desired shapes and responses from our horse. To effectively communicate with our horse in the saddle, it is imperative that we develop an independent seat. When the process comes together it results in horse and rider moving as one-very similar to the flow of movement between two dance partners who are on the same page.
