Feel and Timing
Feel and timing is one of those concepts that sound so accomplished and yet we fumble in our minds with what it really means . We are all striving for it with our horses and yet talk about it with such mystery. How do we contain it. Is there a way to put these graceful words into a format or easy steps to follow.
Feel and timing are one of the most important ingredients in our horsemanship. It must come through in our lives before it can come through to our horsemanship.
Feel and timing should be what embraces our dreams, decisions, communications and how we roll up the hose.
Our horses are the ultimate example of feel and timing. They plan everything and yet make many decisions with no plans. They understand to survive they must feel the moment and time the action.
Feel and timing can only be attained when you are in the moment. If you are in the past or in the future you will not have the exact feel that you need for the moment you are in.
If you are in the moment you will have the timing you need exactly when you feel it.
We must abandon all cants, wont's, dont's and buts and allow our selves to give the present all that it deserves.
I invite your thoughts on feel and timing in your life. I love to share some practical ways to use this in your personal situation. Christa Lynn
