"To make the impossible possible, the possible easy and the easy beautiful" Moshe Feldenkrais
Feeling like you struggle or perhaps like you have reached a plateau? By taking equestrian learning out of the saddle, unmounted classes with Dave Thind provide a venue for a whole new chapter in your riding, regardless if you are someone struggling with sitting-trot or an Olympian trying to make one canter pirouette as good as the other one. Hone the accuracy of your 'feel' with improved body-awareness first in yourself and then your horse. The exploratory classes will give you a better sense and influence on biomechanics and overall feeling of ease through economy of effort. 'When you know what you're doing, you can do what you want" Moshe Feldenkrais
"No part of the body can be moved without all the others being affected," one of the core beliefs of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. Easily rewire your movement patterns, finding new patterns of ease and comfort. The body will always resist going back to repeat a learned activity or posture that is difficult of causes strain. Therefore, we supply a buffet of comfortable and biomechanically sound movement possibilities to the brain to choose from. The results are beautiful and flowing movement in horse and rider. Happy athletes performing to their highest potential while staying pain-free and increasing longevity. "Let go and find control" Dave Thind
