A Great Day Sharing Selfseeds For The Equestrian in Carbonda...

 

“A big thank you to Strang Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado for providing a beautiful and welcoming site for Selfseeds for the Equestrian.”

Maree McAteer and Sue Eoff gave a one day clinic that included three sections: Selfseeds for the rider, Selfseeds on the ground with your horse, and Selfseeds while riding. The eleven selfseeds provide fundamental awareness tools for developing and improving every aspect of being with the horse, feeling, and timing whether dismounted or mounted. At lunch, Maree shared her experience of Ren Hurst’s fundamental principles of being in right action with one’s self and one’s horse. The weather was beautiful, the participants were enthusiastic about exploring a deeper part of the horse partnership, and joy was permeating the arena.

“Thank you everyone! We are jumping up-and-down and cheerleading for the use of Selfseeds to easily and clearly take people on a bridge of an ever developing relationship with their horses and riding. We are looking forward to more opportunities to share Selfseeds for the Equestrian in either a one, two, or three day format.”

The path with the horse is about learning to be good stewards, whether for pleasure or competition. Good stewardship begins with examining one’s self, granting the horse intelligence, and learning how to assess the horse’s state of mind.

Selfseeds is an awareness journey for humans and horses with wellness, consciousness, and harmonious partnering at the core. Eleven Selfseeds provide the template for greater awareness: fitness, nutrition, stillness, emotions, weight distribution, flexibility, balance, rhythm, integrative band, partnering, and personalized five.

Selfseeds are examined and utilized in three areas: first, applying them to the human, second, the human with the horse on the ground, and third, the human astride the horse—a journey of conscious empowerment is undertaken. The uniqueness of both the horse and rider requires self inquiry, discernment, and compassion in the communication and application of the circle of the aids (classically, the seat, legs, and hands as understood by the rider and horse.)

Coursework:

Understanding and applying the circle of the aids for clear, effective, and humane communication.

Part 1. Examining and exploring human awareness, timing, and feel for the application of the circle of the aides.
Part 2. Circle of the aids dismounted (work in hand.)
Part 3. Circle of the aids applied and understood within the riding partnership.

Selfseeds for Humans and Horses presented by Susan Eoff and Maree McAteer:

Susan and Maree met twenty-seven years ago. Early in the friendship, Maree visited Sue in Portugal while studying classical dressage with Señor Luis Valenca. Over the years, they stayed in contact comparing notes on what they had learned and observed while working with horses and students in different countries and disciplines of riding. After re-meeting, they have independently come to the conclusion that the best way to help the horses is by helping the humans. Several years ago, Sue had been asked to develop a program called “Ride Like A Dancer” which combined her knowledge of dressage and ballroom dancing to help provide insight into the skills needed for partnering with the horse. Over time, it morphed into Selfseeds which provides the seeds for self empowerment through mind, body, and soul awareness. Selfseeds are equally relevant for horses, so Sue and Maree are teaming up to provide a comprehensive, awareness program for both riders and horses.
