Feelin’ It: The Riding Vibe

Confession: we’re completely infatuated with all things horses, riding and equestrian fashion. This short Hermès film from 2011 (it’s #FlashBackFriday, after all) captures all the things we love perfectly.

The thing about equestrian living is that it’s so much more than just riding. As founder of The Equestrian Linnéa Aarflot says, “riding is more about being present in the emotions and senses, than it is a technique. It is of greater value to learn how to be in the vibe, than it is to learn exactly in what angle to put your toes in the stirrup.”

Want to experience it for yourself? Linnea is leading several Equestrian Mindfulness Retreats this summer in collaboration with Oldencraig International Dressage and Mindaway Retreats. The retreat includes yoga, horse riding, organic and locally produced food, meditation, and book time for yourself. Read more about The Equestrian retreats.
