Women say to me “I have been riding all my life and I have never been able to feel; I don’t know what that means.”
The first thing I get them to do is ride with their eyes shut and let their other senses take over and when they take over they start to understand feel. If you have been riding all your life, you have feel, but some Women don’t know it. That is what happens with lack of confidence, especially in women. They convince themselves they don’t have something, when the ability is already there. It is just that fear is determining their thought processes.
Rather than saying, “I have been doing this all my life and I am OK,” they say, “I have been doing this all my life and I am no good.”
Some women just lose themselves in life, with parenting, careers etc and because we are nurturers by nature, we quite happily turn over the self to everything else and when we want to come back and be with the horse, we just lose who we are. But the upside of that is fantastic, because we get to reinvent ourselves. You have to go out with the mindset that, at this time in my life I’m okay; today is what it is.
