Chansonette came out for a lesson with Mystic. Kami asked to come on our trail ride so I ponied her out to the trail and turned her loose. The lesson ended up focusing on the magic of creating harmony with your horse – the one you are riding and the one who is running free next to you, in front of you, behind you or a hundred yards to one side of you. Coercion is not an option. To have her choose you over everything else requires joy in her beauty and freedom as she leaves and greater joy when she returns to check in. It is an utterly enchanting experience. With that as a base of harmony, Chansonette did some lovely riding of Mystic with just seat, legs and a touch of neck string and a whole lot of harmony. The “Trail Less Traveled” by Mary Ann Kennedy is perfect for this video and is used with the permission of the artist.
