Solana's Spanish Walk is coming along quite nicely!
I find it a great exercise to teach a horse to balance themselves and to strengthen and free up their shoulders. I often transition to and from Spanish Walk in the middle of other movements such as half pass or after down transitions to keep the horse thinking of staying light and up in front.
It's also a key piece for developing passage! Piaffe  Spanish Walk transitions often lead to a horse's first passage steps if they aren't naturally inclined towards passage.

IMPROVING PROFESSIONAL 🐴
Enjoy this short excerpt from this week's pod! 🎤
In this episode I’ll take a look at what ‘professional’ looks like when it comes to horse care…I’ll look at what I call the factory-training business model and why we need to change it. 
I’ll share a bit of my story of when I reinvented myself and how that benefitted my horses and why it’s so important that heart-centered horse professionals learn how to thrive in the horse business… not just so they can have a fulfilling sustainable and profitable life they can LOVE… but because it directly influences the QUALITY OF LIFE FOR HORSES.

Re-Creating Art - NEW POD EPISODE! 🎤
Enjoy this short excerpt from my latest pod. In this New Year’s episode, I ponder life, meaning, creation, recreation & art – and of course, horses. This episode is part answering a student’s question, part rambling, part life philosophy, and part not-totally well thought out thoughts… it’s reflective of the brain-space I get in around the new year! 🤔

LOL Sydney ‘enjoying’ her Barn Dog Spa Day with @equiderma shampoo and conditioners. She stays soft and clean feeling for a long time with these... which is saying a lot for a dog who rolls in manure as a hobby. #teamequiderma
Life with Ovation ever since I taught him a trick of giving kisses. 😍 i love the sound (and the wet kisses) #ilovehorses #dressagenaturally #ilovemylife
It was a magical morning...
Happiness is a fully loaded hay shed. #horselife #ilovehorses
