Under The Forelock

The following video includes the full interview of Barbara Alexander by Betsy Bilhorn in Under The Forelock. They talk about the powerful awareness that can be gained from personal development. While this interview began as education for equestrians, it became apparent that the discussion revealed insight to personal happiness.

“When does a clinic end up being a profound, life changing experience? I talk with Barbara Alexander who organized and facilitated a clinic with Frederic & Magali Pignon that I attended. I thought I was going there to learn liberty training and okay, some “leadership” exercises. I got a bit more than I expected!
Barbara and I talk about how horses can teach and facilitate finding our way to joy.  We talk about boundaries, leadership, and being tuned in to ourselves. And for those of us who are riders, the exercises had the added benefit of being very aware of how you communicate non-verbally, and how that works (or doesn’t work!).”
