The Yoga of Horse and Rider 6 month program

Do you:

  • care for horse better than yourself?
  • feel out of sync with your horse?
  • struggle with fear or feeling out of control?
  • ...and do these things impair your enjoyment of your horse?

Would you like to:

  • have enough energy and confidence to make progress with your horse?
  • build a deeper connection with your horse?
  • clarify your communication skills?
  • develop a working relationship based on understanding and joy?

This six month program is a result of an ongoing conversation between Zaidee and Tess about how the principles and practice of classical horsemanship, yoga, the Alexander Technique, and healthy living can come together to inform, improve, and inspire your relationship with your horse and yourself.

ABOUT TESS 

Tess is began her training in classical dressage, natural horsemanship, and somatic movement practices over twenty years ago. She currently teaches in and around Cambridge, New York, where she developed an ongoing, integrative movement and bodywork program for riders. Her experience as a dancer and artist provides Tess with a devotion to collaboration, communication, and creativity, and she believes that learning to ride well is akin to learning to become a masterful artist; it requires a honing of the senses, an ability to listen, and a desire to communicate with clarity and feel.
