Frederic Pignon, Margret Henkels and Magali Delgado connected at “The Mind, Body and Spirit of Horsemanship.” This workshop’s special quality is the emphasis on working with the horse’s agreement. “We do what the horse wants.” Margret was inspired by Magali and Frederick’s demonstrations at their Albuquerque Tamayo Workshop.
Riders who do fascia bodywork regularly often change riding exercises to match the horse’s abilities. Horses then progress rapidly. .A personal path with our horse is part of the excitement and fun.
THE BACK-STORY ON CONFORMATION BALANCING:
An avid rider with a BA in Journalism, my visual skills were honed as an artist, while I worked in newspapers & magazines. A riding injury in my 20’s created a keen desire for fitness and solutions for my chronic stuckness and pain. I certified in Matrix Energetics, a Quantum Energy work founded by Dr. Richard Bartlett and embraced the “100%” concept. Through a horse show, I met Heller Worker Steve Johnson. His fascia sessions so profoundly restored my fitness that I certified in Equine Natural Movement with Joseph Freeman. Doris Kay Halstead’s Release the Potential book was another step.
I regularly rides trail and dressage on my Azteca (Andalusian/Quarter horse) mare and BLM roundup mustang. The Sally Swift Centered Riding program combines well with this fascia work since it focuses on the rider’s body, as well as the horse’s requirements.
The more I work with horses, the more impressed and humbled by their ability to tolerate the confinement and limits on their natural lifestyles. We are so fortunate to have their company for our lives and sports.
