Zen &
            the Horse


Posture, Breath & Awareness

Zen and the Horse applies the Zen meditation techniques of refining posture, breath and awareness to riding horses. As riders refine their posture and breathing, their awareness changes. They become more aware of the efficient use of their own bodies, as well as the bodies of the horses beneath them.

The book, Zen & Horseback Riding, explains how to use the psoas muscles and release the hyoid muscles in order for riders to have self-carriage in the saddle. Rider’s Seat clinics teach riders to correctly use their bodies to achieve tone (strength with flexibility), self-carriage (stability with lift) and movement (vertically bilateral) both on and off the horse.
