Sarah, the creator and leader of the school, was inspired by Pat Parelli, the founder of the Natural Horse-man-ship approach.
She affirms: “It’s not about teaching a technique, it’s all about learning how to “read” the horse. This process of communication works towards building a friendship”.
Respect, observation without judgment, mutual understanding, truthfulness, full presence and clarity of intention are all necessary. You cannot lie to a horse!
That’s why most of the work starts on the ground.
With friendly games we create a joyful and trustful relationship. Later, children ride but without a saddle or a bit, only with a simple bridle, “to become one with the horse”, says Satyamayi. She is a 12 years old student who dreams to run, like Sarah, her own riding school one day.
Here, Sarah, Leela (11 years old) and Satyamayi share their love for the horses, interview each other, read some basic principles of Horsemanship from Parelli’s book, and much more….
