The TRH Somatic Riding® program teaches bareback and bitless riding skills in a program created and pioneered by The Reflective Horse® founder, Cassandra Ogier. This program builds a partnership between horse and human based on mutual trust and understanding and, focused on the fundamentals of this relationship, each student develops a bond with one horse. This is done by developing the somatic senses of the body, learning ground-work and energy techniques with the horse, and uniting the two at the appropriate time with a riding experience.
The program develops skills for relating with the horse and enhances focus and attention to body language, non-verbal communication, and emotional and physical balance. Students learn how to ‘listen’ to what the horse is communicating to them, learning the language of mind whispering through the utilization of intuition and perception.
