I highly recommend becoming a member of BTMM. The principles on this platform are a continuation of the nerve release work I do, it will take you through the relationship to connection and how to achieve this with your horse. There's opportunity to book 1:1 session with trainers both face to face or over zoom so you can continue to build your knowledge and relationship with your horse both in hand and under saddle.
I highly recommend these products. The body is a whole unit, if one part is out of sync it will have a knock on effect on the whole body. The health of the guts hugely influences the muscle and fascia and I have seen major improvements in this with horses on these products. Click the here for more information.
