♔ Kjrsos Rider's Field of Study ❂ Finding Variation

 

Kjersos Potential ~

For the Horses. From the Horses.

Creating the feels and connections that are the path to the centaur.

Celebrating free flowing movement leading to a gymnastically healthy powerful body.

 

Movement is a Language all of its own.  and it is here that we begin to explore that language.  In the Genesis Foundation you discovered the patterns of energy of the horse that you had to merge to.  In Changing Directions you took up the responsibility that happens when you take up the reins and begin directing those energies.  Here we take the next step and we begin to play. We search within.   We search within the patterns of energy, within the patterns of direction, for angles.  Angles that create, open up and change the horse, variance within the pattern while respecting the energies that exist at all times.

 

This is the beginning.  The beginning of the creation of dynamic potential.  This is where the conversation begins with the horse, as we explore, we open up possibilities. Opening up our minds and the minds of our horses to the idea of possibilities.  It is here that everything changes.  Without this conversation, we can't start, we can't help the horse discover how collection begins with him, with his awareness of possibilities.  

 

Value this time, explore carefully.  You are right now creating the endings, not just the beginnings.

All Potential Lives in Collection

Every moment with your horse is about collection.  Collection is not an end goal, collection is not a final form, but is along for the entire ride.  It is there in a milder form, if your horse's body is healthy.  There to nurture, to develop, to cradle, to find and to protect and perhaps most importantly of all, to allow.

Potential ~ Ability | Possibilities | Capacities | Capabilities

 

Of should this be collection lives in potential?

This is preparing the rider for the concept that in every movement is the 'potential' for collection, so we need to be aware and ready to allow, support, and praise as the baby steps of collection begin to appear.

We start here, because this is where we will end.. It is from this point forward we need to be aware of possibilities of the potential of what the end is, so we know where we are going and when we are surprised by that special moment we can embrace it, praise it, glory in it, in that moment in time.  Sometimes the change will be subtle and a little more difficult to find to reward, so we must be vigilant always.

The pre-eminent movement that is the base of all movements.  It is the key leading to access to power of the hind legs and is the key to all other movements, from piaffe to pirouettes.  This one movement is everything. Which makes how you access shoulder-in the most important thing that you will ever learn.  

Movement - A language through our physical bodies

Playing with corners ~ the beginning of exploration of the possibilities that live in the horse.

Need to subdivide.. the yield of the outside hand for initial corners.. that lesson.  Versus playing with corners and the training possibilities that live in there.  

Pre-requisite The Mobile Shoulder under The Study of Healthy Movement 

From collected to extended trot.

Including the mittletrab

Not only what each is and the dangers in each but what each brings to create a malleable, released yet powerful in the strength it brings to the horse's body.

The balance of two sides equally developed.  Equal bend and release.  The pinnacle of our horsemanship.  But a word that has no business being referred to at any but the most developed and highest levels of your equestrian journey.  This is the quest.  The equestrian quest.

They can not be too much forward.  Forward protects the horse from us.
