Symbiosis was born out of the need to promote and teach holistic methods of working and communicating with the horses within our equestrian community.
At Symbiosis riding is about two living beings being together and enjoying each other´s company ; an integral part for this connection is to have our horses not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally balanced.
We encourage the horse to willingly follow our leadership. Using ‘Symbiosis’ training methods the horse develops the motivation to follow and work with us autonomously. This is our ultimate goal; two beings working harmoniously together.
An integral part for Symbiosis is creating the bond which is developed from working the horse from the ground. Once communication is established here, we move onto the riding part. We teach riders and horses to communicate correctly and solve any miscommunications which may occur along the way. Slowly the true ‘feeling’ of riding reveals itself; words such as lightness and harmony are understood and enjoyed by both horse and rider.
At Symbiosis we always keep the horses best interests at heart of what we do.
All horses and riders are different. We take time to ensure that every horse has the opportunity to bond and connect with his/her rider. Using patience, understanding and unconditional love for our horses we slowly see the connection that escapes so many. Once the connection is made we encourage the horse and rider to have the confidence to express themselves freely, knowing that the special bond they have created will not be broken.
When this harmony is achieved, for us at Symbiosis, this is when the magic happens!
