Interview with Wendy Murdoch: Centered Riding, Returning From Injuries, and More

“We each have within us our own best teacher that recognizes what is best for our own well being.” This is what I love about Wendy Murdoch’s teaching style – she has a unique way of helping both horse and rider discover where they are most balanced and comfortable.

Wendy interview

 

Wendy has a long list of accomplishments. She has authored several books, produced numerous DVDs and is a certified Feldenkrais practitioner.   Wendy is also an international riding instructor and clinician and even owns an equestrian safari company in Kenya!

While I have only worked with Wendy a few times now, I have consumed much of her published material and have developed a deep appreciation for her style of work. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do an interview with Wendy, and share some of her insights with you.

Here are just a few of the topics we cover in the following video:

  • With all your years of teaching, what is one of the most common mistakes you see riders making? (turns out Wendy doesn’t like the word mistake)
  • What are recommendations for riders returning to riding after injures?
  • How can a person stay riding fit even if they can’t ride as often as they want?
  • What is Sure-Foot and how does sticking a pad under a horse’s hoof help him become more balanced?

Watch the video to hear Wendy’s responses to the above questions and a few more. After watching, leave a comment then check out the links to Wendy’s resources under the video.

Please excuse the grainy appearance of this video – we had to make do with our lighting that day.
