I come from traditional riding, where the horse is often treated as an inferior at our service, with dominance, violence and looking for fast results. Since I’m doing classes at the Yeguada Farrriols with Melín, the vision I had of horses totally changed. It’s a fantastic setting, between sea and mountains, that breathes tranquility, serenity, peace and an unbeatable attention from the hosts. Through different exercises using the body in a balanced, coordinated and smooth manner, with greater body awareness and conscious breathing, I’m better understanding my own body, increasing communication with the horse and this is mirrored in their attitude. It’s a new feeling, a new method which promotes a different way to understand and feel the horses I did not know until now.
After that first day, I decided to start classes and start my relationship with the Farriols horses (generous, powerful and honest animals) and principles related to Connected Riding™ on and natural horsemanship, which I understand are grounded in sensitivity, respect, honesty, humility, humor and I would even say love for nature and all living beings.
