"I just wrapped up a private coaching session with Karen Musson from The Art of Riding.
Her subtle way of changing the timing so that you are communicating directly to the horse through his feet instead of cues or pressure and release (which she explains actually sets you up so your timing is too late, forcing you to micromanage your horse) is so rewarding to experience!
In fact, your horse responds to it with willingness and pleasure. So much so that the release or "reward" is actually the feel itself! Not a release to mark a point where the horse has done what you asked. This allows you and your horse to continue in the flow without interruption.
Love this stuff!"
