Gigi's Journal

I find that many people are tight in their arms.  People carry too much tension in their arms and this creates tension in a horse's neck.  When I see this teaching new riders, I ask them to allow their lower arm to feel heavy and relaxed.  I can't tell you how many times when a student changes this the horse will relax his neck and become softer.

Gigi's Journal

Since this is the first entry in my journal, I would like to share with you a thought I wrestled with for the past couple of years. 

Over the years I've used an expression learned from my first teacher, "Throw you heart over the fence".  I did that for my entire riding life, until recently.  ." I have ridden what some called the "rogue" horses in my lifetime.  If they came hard at me, I would go harder at them.   After two major falls in two years, both on young horses, I realized that my mind is stopping my heart from going over the fence.  I am learning that I'm not as agile as I once was, nor do I get up as fast when a horse has unloaded me.  At first, this thought made me want to hang up my spurs. Now, I realize that if I do a bit more thinking and a little less confronting, I can work a horse with me instead of under me.  Part of me thinks that I am using that reasoning as an excuse.  The other part is telling me that I have gained wisdom as a trainer and a better understanding of this great creature.
