Next exercise in our challenge - J for Joy! 

It’s not everyday we find our training joyful. It’s natural and it’s a part of life in general, we have ups and downs. But if you struggle with finding joy most of the days, if you’ve gotten stuck in the same routine or simply want to shake things up a bit and have fun, the best thing to do is act and ask yourself, what can I do today to make the training more joyful? 

In this exercise we invite you and your horse to have fun together, through bounce jumping - with a twist! (keep the poles on the ground, elevate them into small cavaletti or bounce jumps depending on level of difficulty you prefer). Try both directions! 

🧡

Dare to challenge yourself and your horse with new exercises. You will learn a lot about  your limitations, abilities and strengths! 

The challenging exercises will make you think outside the box, find solutions to difficult situations and become aware of what you want to improve. It automatically increases your creativity and problem solving skills. 

The thing is to find the right exercises for the particular intention or goal and not get frustrated and quit when things doesn’t go your way. There’s always a way you can succeed, by just focusing on the intention.

Intention💫

🔸Focusing only on your goals and resolutions could be disappointing if they are not achieved at the intended time. That does not mean you shouldn't have goals, but if you also have an intention as to how you will achieve your goals, you will likely have better results. 

🔸An intention don't have an end date or is connected to one specific thing, it's a way of being and moving through life. An intention is hard to measure because it has no endpoint. 

🔸Connect every goal with an intention. For example: The goal is to have 5 clear rounds by the end of the summer. Instead, you could focus on the intention of riding with more focus and paying attention to what's happening with the horse underneath you every time you ride. To that intention there's no endpoint and no bar to be met to be able to succeed. 

🔸With the intention you will have immediate success and in the long run be more satisfied. 

🔸Try this exercise with an intention. For example to work on shortening and lengthening the strides or straightness across the poles. Focus on the intention and not the result.

If you haven’t already, join our exercise challenge! 💫

Every week we will provide you with exercises that represents each letter of the alphabet. The goal of this challenge is to bring a sense o purpose to your exercise and ride with intention, having the particular word in mind. The exercises can be executed in many different ways. Try to be open minded! 

🔸H - Heart🔸

Motivation and what you feel about something often goes hand in hand. Sometimes we need to create motivation by tuning in to our passion. To really feel that we are putting our heart and soul into the things we do. Passion involves not being scared of failing, being confident and open to learning. It requires trusting your gut! 
 
Regardless of how large or small the job is, you will become consistent and focused to do things more consciously. You will learn to solve the problem at hand and focus on improving your present rather than worrying about the future. To do things from your heart with passion you will also learn be more empathetic, to understand from someone else’s perspective and develop a better understanding of yourself and others around you. This can eventually increase your motivation in your riding but also in your life in general. 

For you who feel you lack motivation, try to connect with your heart and passion. Connect with the love and the empathy for yourself and your horse and you will discover that motivation can be created.

🧡💙

Polework strengthens your horse in many ways! 

It develops core stability, improves balance control and steering. It also improves your horse’s suppleness by encouraging him to step under with the hind leg. 

And the best thing about polework is that you can be creative and ride as many different shapes and routes as your imagination allows. 

Check out the Creative Riding book series for hundreds of strengthening pole and cone exercises. Link in bio 🧡

How often do you set goals?

🔸🔶G - GOALS🔶🔸

We all know that setting goals is important, but we often don’t realize how important they are as we continue to move through life.

There are many benefits and advantages to having a set of goals to work towards.
Setting goals helps trigger new behaviors, guide your focus and sustain that momentum in life. 

To be able to achieve the goal you set up increases your self-efficacy and motivation, which makes it easier to set new and perhaps bigger goals. 

In this exercise we invite you to practice goal setting. Start small and with a goal that is easy to achieve. Decide what you want to achieve for this particular riding session. For example for your horse to be aligned, to approach the poles straight in the middle or ride a natural flowing route where you use all the poles in the exercise. 

And don't forget to have fun on the way!

Next up in the challenge - F for Flow! 🌊

🔸🔶FLOW🔶🔸

〰️

Have you ever had the feeling of, during a certain activity, that time just flies and you feel like you are in your exact right element? Then you might have experienced ‘flow’. 

〰️

Flow is a state of mind, in which a person becomes fully immersed in an activity. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmost. 

〰️

Riding and being together with your horse is an activity that often demands all your attention. When you let yourself be present and really connect with your horse and the activity, you will more easily get into the state of flow. 

〰️

There are some exercises that will help you to get there more than others, like the exercise above. Try to ride with soft turns and even pace and find your flow!

E for Energy! ⚡️

🔶🔸ENERGY🔸🔶

🔹Many of us are under some kind of time pressure from a busy schedule and we often come to our horses with little time to spare. We are a nation of agenda-driven individuals, who often have to justify taking time for ourselves. This brings obstacles when it comes to connecting with your horse. Taking the time to pay attention to the energy state that we are in for the present moment, and really connect with yourself and your horse on a spiritual and energetic level, will give you so much more joy and satisfaction. 

🔹There is one simple step we can take as we work with our horses — to share space with them, to “be” with them and to listen to their signals. It’s the pause between activities that brings us to understanding and trust. To use energy is to get out of your head into your heart, which allows you to feel instead of think. 

🔹In this exercise we invite you to do exactly that- feel and go with the energy instead of having to plan everything from the mind. From the beginning, when you start working your horse, to the end. This will change the way you approach your training sessions, making you feel less goal-driven, and more able to bond on a deeper level. 

🔹Place 9 cones in a square formation as the picture shows and explore the energy flow.

D for Devotion! 

🔷🔹DEVOTION🔹🔷

To be devoted is to go wholeheartedly into your task, everything that surrounds your riding and the time you spend with your horse. Devotion gives you the energy to stay present in the moment and to always sense your horse’s needs. 

Try this exercise and ride every step with dedication and care 💫🧡

C for Curiosity! 

🔶🔸CURIOSITY🔸🔶

🔹A horse that is curious is listening, open to learning and able to apply his mental and emotional reasoning skills. Your horse may be interested in things flying by or trees rustling but not tense up and prepared to escape. 
Teaching your horse to be curious allows new situations to be faced without fear and getting into fight or flight, but with open emotional and mental awareness. 

🔹Curiosity also applies to you as a rider, when you approach new situations with a curious and open mind it will transfer to your horse.

🔹Explore this exercise with curiosity in mind and maybe you’ll find new ways to do things🌟

Next up - B for Balance! ⚖️ 

🔷🔹BALANCE 🔹🔷

🔸Balance is one of the three cornerstones for achieving a good position in the saddle. As a rider you need to learn the ability to keep and maintain your balance and rhythm on a moving horse in all gaits. 

🔸Balance can also be the balance between your body mind and thoughts, balance between your aids and balance in how you plan your riding session. 

🔸Try this exercise with balance in mind and bring awareness to the body. Before entering the exercise, begin with a quick “body scan” exercise. Start to bring your attention to the position of your feet, knees, thighs, up to your seat, notice your weight distribution, all the way to your trunk, shoulders and neck. Repeat a few times, both in walk, trot and canter. Connect to your balanced position and try keeping the alignment throughout the exercise. 💙

Join our challenge and be creative with the letters of the alphabet! 💫

Every week we will provide you with exercises that represents each letter of the alphabet. The goal of this challenge is to bring a sense o purpose to your exercise and ride with intention, having the particular word in mind. The exercises can be executed in many different ways. Try to be open minded! 

🔸🔶🔸A - AWARENESS🔸🔶🔸

🔹The first and most important thing when it comes to riding is awareness. Awareness of yourself, your body, your mind and your thoughts. As well as your horse’s. 

🔹Sometimes we become unaware of patterns of tension that show up in our bodies and that's perfectly normal. Our bodies are programmed for creating patterns. But sometimes they are more negative, for example tension in where tension isn't meant to be. 

🔹When we learn how to influence these parts of our bodies, through awareness, and develop positive patterns instead, our riding becomes better and we will enhance communication with our horse. This will lead to better performance in the end. 

🔹In this exercise, try to keep awareness of your body and your mind all the time. If your mind wanders and you lose contact, gently bring it back, over and over again. See what comes up!

Benefits of canter work:

🔸Builds strength and stamina

🔸Improves cardio 
🔹Activates hindquarters 
🔸Releases tension
🔹Not only does the canter improve itself, but it also creates more power in other gaits and exercises. 
🔸It’s fun! 

📙📘Our books Creative Riding with obstacles & Creative Riding in the arena are filled with great exercises suited for canter work! 📙📘

Let’s do this! 👏

📙Exercise: ”The ship” 

Choose one of the three ways to do the exercise or combine all of them in different variations by changing how you enter and exit the “ship”. 

🔸Straight track - Ride straight through the figure

🔸Bows through the “ship” - enter and exit the straight line through the triangle poles 

🔸Circles - ride circles over the triangle poles 

This exercise is great for straightening, keeping cadence and suppleness 👌🏼

More details on this exercise you’ll find in our orange book “CREATIVE RIDING WITH OBSTACLES” 📙

Have fun! 🧡

🌳Slalom between trees🌳

To ride slalom between trees is great for your riding intuition and more challenging compared with riding slalom between cones in the arena.

🍃🍃🍃

Your slalom objects in the forest never stand in a straight line, with even distances or on even ground with makes it more tricky. 

🍃🍃🍃

Slalom around trees demands a lot of focus from both yourself and your horse, which makes it an excellent exercise and sometimes a well needed break from the arena 🤩
