 Soft Touch Quantum' Horsemanship -for mind-body & soul.

Comments from a Youth Program

with Rose at the Barn

(This is from a very bright young woman who studies way too much.  It actually effects her body behavior.)

A 15 yr old.  My thoughts and feelings about this program was that it was great.  It was different from an average riding program.  You went beyond mentally, to really make me think about things.  I was fascinated by what you were saying and explaining.  I learned a lot about myself too.  I learned that I am extremely tense and it shows.  I let myself over analyze things when it was just unnecessary to do.  I learned that I just "go with the flow" instead of trying to figure something out, I over analyze it and just drive myself crazy thinking about it.  I need to incorporate what I have learned through this wonderful program into everyday situations, such as school, friends, family, etc.  I now have a new  perspective for riding.                 Lisa (Day one)

Today I learned that if I just stop thinking about every little thing inside my head and focus on what I need to be thinking, I can accomplish it.  I need to just clear everything out of my head and stop worrying so much.  I also learned that I should be more aware of what could happen in a dangerous situation.  I learned how I can be safer in that sort of situation.  I learned if I just relax and stop doubting myself, I can accomplish anything.  Lisa (Day-two)

From Rose:  [This young woman is about to graduate, getting her degree for becoming a therapist. (day one)]  She is Lisa's sister, another very intelligent young woman with the same physical issues, especially with the hands, an interesting dilemma --for continued study, and writing on the website)

When first arriving to participate in this program, I felt uncertain and did not know what to expect.  The subject/topics that were going to be introduced appeared vague and mysterious in nature.  As we continued to participate in the first activity, I felt reluctant, unsure and afraid, standing inside the stall next to the horse that scared me because he was so large. I knew that I did not know how to place a halter on a horse, (never had) and was sure that I was going to make a mistake.  I felt surprised, and shocked myself when I had somehow placed the harness on the horse.

The second activity frustrated me and I felt that I could not give up the bridle and give it to someone else until I had figured it out.  I felt that I was close to figuring it out however, thought that I would be taking too much of the groups time if I has spent additional time with it.

The third activity (placing the bridle on the horse) frustrated me again because it appeared easy however was difficult for me to do.  I was scared and grossed out to stick my hand in the horse's mouth!  While conducting this activity I found myself zoning out and not paying close attention to the coach.  I feel that I some how lost interest at this time.

The last activity that I participated in for the day (on the horse) integrated, facinated, relaxed and made me feel sad.  At first I felt that I was having a surreal moment ~ simply preparing to get up on a horse.  I was in shock and could not believe I was doing this because I feared not throwing my leg over the horses back and slipping off once on him.  I thoroughly enjoyed this experience because it has allowed me to see first hand that despite how tense, anxious and afraid I can be at times, I can relax and let myself go into a moment by centering myself with my breath and allowing my muscles to relax.  *This was a powerful moment for me because I realized that if I was able to become calm in such an alarming situation, then I have the potential to change my anxiety responses in other situations that arise that appear stressful.

By the second day of this program I felt less fearful and more comfortable with the horses.  I still felt a sense of fear however, it was not as significant as compared to yesterday.  At first when Rose described the schedule of events that were going to take place today (Lisa and I getting on the horses again and going outside to ride)  I did not feel a sense of anxiety come up, however, I thought back to yesterday and felt trust in myself, the horse and the coach,  This trust eased me through my anxious feelings.

While riding outside I again felt a feeling of disbelief (that I was actually riding a horse outside)  I felt a great sense of freedom once riding around and looking outward into the distance. Lori
