Sharing Selfseeds for the Equestrian with the students and equestrian teachers (Amanda and Monica) at Colorado Rocky Mountain School was a pleasure. Selfseeds helped them each create a personalized map of their mind, body, and soul, so when they got on the horses bareback (I really liked the bareback approach which was a lesson for me!), they were able to get very clear and direct feedback from the horses. Both Amanda and Monica observed the students immediately were riding from a different inner awareness/exterior position without direct instruction. The second day included applying Selfseeds for the horse while working with the newly adopted Mustang and talking about the application of the 11 selfseeds while partnering/training the horse on the ground. Next, the students had a lesson with a saddle and more awareness was applied while giving direct instructions as they worked in a quadrille type file. I was very impressed how the principles of the selfseeds were applied in their personal lives in the days between the lessons! Wow! Awesome to watch selfseeds planted, nurtured, and grown over just a few days. Thank you for this inspiring and heartwarming experience!!!
“Sue Eoff’s Selfseeds program initiated almost immediate and visible transformations among our riding students. Her knowledge, humor and over-all awareness of all that contributes to the horse-human bond is truly amazing. She first introduced to our students, thru a variety of effective methods and movements, the seeds that consist of the Selfseeds program prior to getting on the horses themselves–and then the magic happened! Each student evidenced a noticeable difference on horseback; they were focused, soft, reflective, centered and ‘linked’ to their animals. And these are teenagers, mind you! Sue also worked with the school’s mustang and immediately demonstrated the need to ‘see’ training aids thru the guise of the horse. Over-all, Sue provided us with horse skills and life skills in that sometimes the best methodology of all is to simply be–be present, be mindful, be aware.”
