What a treat of a conversation with Jane Pike of The Confident Rider for this episode of the Whole Horse Podcast! Before we even started recording, my face was hurting from giggling, and that spirit continued as we traversed territory around working with and not against our emotions with our horses, practical simple steps to restore regulation in our nervous systems and build in resilience, how to work with healthy activation and discomfort, and how to navigate losing our tempers with grace and growth, so that we can find better footing in the future. An excellent listen for any horse person, who, like me, loves adding tools to my toolkit that facilitate connection with my horses and beyond.
