Welcome To Selfseeds Virtual Riding Program Founder Susan Eoff

I have created this online program to give you a personalized approach for improving your self awareness, partnership with your horse, and riding performance. Through 20 years of teaching riding live, working with videos for international horse sales, and reviewing human assessments through videos, the inspiration to create a virtual guidance program for riders emerged. The fundamental tools I draw upon are dressage (classical and competitive/USDF fourth level certified), distance riding, jumping, ballroom dancing, fitness training (NASM), and a spiritual path in India. I work with you by helping you to develop a Self-map through video assessments (see "Why are assessments so important?") and a written history. In order to provide clear, accurate information for maximum results, I create a baseline using the human developed from the Human Movement System, your riding skills/level, plus the history of both horse and rider. The 11 components of Selfseeds (www.Selfseeds.com) are the template for the rider’s development, and my international, multi-disciplined horse experience (www.Waltzinghorses.com) supports the horse’s development. We all need eyes on the ground and insights into our often too familiar self to make changes, refine what can be improved, or get ideas outside of our own box of tools. My life process has been dedicated to this approach, so I am excited to help you on this remarkable journey with the horse through developing exercises, suggesting techniques, sharing observations, and cheerleading you on! The feedback can be shared through email, Skype, Facetime, video, etc. depending on where you or I am in the world at the time of correspondence!! Let’s get started!!

After watching, you will then use a similar format to create your own videos to submit for assessment. Keep in mind that natural behavior is the most useful for you and your horse for developing an accurate baseline. Camcorders, iPhones, iPads, and more are all useful for filming video footage for submission. Read the Video Resources page for help.
