Origins of Selfseeds
Selfseeds grew out of a request to create a “partnering workshop” for equestrians based on the partnering skills from ballroom dancing. My dance partner at the time, Eddie Schiffman, and I developed an awareness program from the principles of yoga, balance, weight distribution, flexibility, symmetry, rhythm, and partnering skills. Riders got to work alone and with human partners to better understand themselves and how they approach partnering without the presence of a horse. This self-discovery undoubtedly applied to their equine partnership.
