Breathing in from our stomachs
Most of us without realising breath from our throats. We take small shallow breaths.
To breath properly we must go deep into our stomach learning to take long and slow breaths all day everyday in every occasion.
Just like our horses and ponies when happiest breath out. We too, as humans are most relaxed and happiest when we breath from our stomachs.
This is why we must learn to be aware of it.
Practising each of these stages constantly in everyday life will help you remain calm and focused when on your horse.
Learning to breath deep, slow and calm must become a habit if you are to perform consistently well in the ring.
