The Alexander Technique and Horses
Horses in their natural environment will use themselves very well, but when we place extra demands on them , for example, by introducing a rider – particularly one who is not poised and balanced – their use and performance can be compromised.
There is a long tradition of horse riding and the Alexander technique. Both riders and horses benefit from the gentle hands on approach that encourages them to “lengthen and widen “ . Usually the rider takes lessons first before having lessons with the horse.
Cats and Dogs
Our favourite pets, being vertebrates, can also enjoy the gentle hands on stimulus of an Alexander teacher that encourage psycho – physical balance !
