Three to thrive

At the moment it’s just a hobby of mine to figure out how to get multiple minds, energies and bodies aligned to do some simple tasks as standing still, moving forwards and on circles. Fascinating laboratory 😉

Romanesque and Prince Elmelund are now a very cooperative team, so I thought it was about time to add a third dimension. So I decided to add El Blanco to the team.

I have been training El Blanco together with Toronto at liberty, so is familiar with the concept of working in a team. Now I was curious if he would figure out himself that it was about joining forces with this new team. And he did.

Very quickly he decided to join, although he was a bit careful with connecting to Prince Elmelund’s ‘energy bubble’, but once he found out that PE was okay with it, and with a little encouragement, he got closer.

By adding El Blanco to the team of Romanesque and Prince Elmelund, we have another influencer on the communication, energy, and conversations.Very interesting to see the influence of a third horse on the group dynamics.

Three to thrive!

Thank you Kathrine, and great that you are incorporating Straightness Training with the work you already do!

In forward movement, you have to take care of the first 3 keys of Straightness Training, which are: Lateral beding, Forward down and Stepping under. All three keys help each other.

Good luck!
