Dressage in the Fourth Dimension: Feedback from Quebec

We have just completed a really fabulous Dressage in the Fourth Dimension Introductory mounted certification clinic in Quebec, at Ecurie Royale. Everything was perfect....we did yoga and meditation outside in the sunshine, held our lectures under a canopy of shade trees and rode in the lovely indoor arenas. Everyone came away with new things to work on and a much deeper understanding of how their bodies, minds, emotions and spirits all work together to ride dressage. These clinics are really sensational! Here are some comments from the clinic:
  • "I found the element that was missing for me - i.e. the spiritual body."
  • "Another aspect I have noticed is how well balanced you are."
  • "I can't express to you how deep the understanding of the triangles and the core open-ness and toning has been for me. "
  • "I experienced that is really is the rider's Seat and Position that put the horse on the bit."
  • "Viewing dressage holistically helped me break through my blocks. I have never ridden better!"

Dear Sherry,
I can't believe how strongly the concept of the four bodies were linked with the workshop you gave this week-end - how refreshing to have such a complete approach to dressage and riding. Another aspect, I have noticed is how well balanced you are, in your own bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual). I can't express to you how deep the understanding of the five triangles in the body when opened and toned as you have taught us can make a difference while riding but also in all areas of my life. I was meditating this morning on the one in the neck - very powerful to help align the other ones.

I shall study with you again, it is rare to meet someone as integrated as you are, except perhaps, the horses !

Gratitude and respect,
