A series is typically 4-5 sessions, each lasting approximately 1hr 15 mins to 1hr 30 mins
Session one builds rapport and establishes trust, while identifying holding patterns. Superficial tension is released while continuing to identify deeper holding patterns.
Session two focuses on vertical balance over all four legs, freeing up the shoulders, lumbar, hips and pelvis. This creates stability, as well as power from the hind end.
Session three moves into horizontal balance, addressing deeper tension through the barrel, and integrates muscle groups that share movement functions.
Session four further integrates the body while connecting the front end to the hind, addresses core holding patterns in the body, and assists in bringing out the horse’s natural fluidity.
Session five reinforces changes. As the horse moves through the series and explores their new flexibility, they must develop strength in their new movement patterns.
Typically you want at least several days to a week minimum between sessions so the horse has time to experience and explore their “new” body. As your horse moves through the series, more time between sessions may be beneficial for them to build strength. The results of the sessions are cumulative; I’ve found the effects become most noticeable usually as we move into sessions 3 and 4.
Please have your horse relatively clean to get the most out of your session time.
