Growing Younger While Working the MBS Way

…by Emily Glidden In my work with horseback riders, I’m frequently amazed at how changes in the rider’s body are reflected in the horse’s.  When the rider loosens her back, the horse’s back loosens also.  When the rider frees up her shoulders, the horse’s shoulders also become freer.  It’s a fascinating result of two nervous […]
