  6. Shane and I have a VERY busy year coming up ahead of us with rescheduled events squeezed in for the rest of the year. After our months of lock-down and isolation it is great to finally be getting back to live events and doing what I love most.....and that is, getting together with everyone and helping them with their horses. Here in the office we've done our best to make sure all events go ahead at rescheduled dates. So far we've managed to find a space for most of them, but boy-oh-boy what a super busy 6 months it is going to be. Please check out the dates below and be sure to book or confirm your bookings with the QS Office as soon as you possibly can so we can all move forward with confidence. Many thanks for your help everyone. We just want to make sure no one misses out. So please share this or pass on the info if you can. Full details of all events are on the QS Forum calendar and on facebook calendar. Here though is a quick overview. As you can see, there is A LOT on so please do get in touch with the office ASAP if you'd like to book a spot or find out more. I look forward to seeing you all somewhere down the track this year.

  8. HI everyone.....just to let you all know that our next Horse Chat with Meredith and PG online get together will be on Sunday 12th July. We were going to do it at 9am UK time / 10am Germany / Holland but we've had a request to make it 11am UK time. Does that suit everyone? More info on the joint PM or also on our QS Europe/UK facebook chat group. Please do let me know if you'd like to join us. M meri & chook 1.bmp
  9. Hi again...I've had some questions re private lessons and auditing over the summer. Check out the info below.... PRIVATE LESSONS - we begin with an initial zoom chat to discuss what you'd like to look at in your lesson (before the actual lesson). Then I'll get you to film the task so I can see what is happening and how it is going. We'd then do a pre-booked zoom chat where we could look at the video together and go over what is working and not working and things to work on. I'd then get you to go and practise and film it again. We'd then chat once more and look at how it went. So it would be two-fold lesson (in two parts). If we did a 30 minute lesson it would just be the initial chat plus us going over the first video. If we do all 3 chats and two videos it'd be a one hour lesson. 30 mins - $60AUD; initial chat, video the task, second chat where we go over the video together. (£33 / € 35 Euros) 60 mins - $120AUD; as above plus second video and a third chat where we discuss this second video after your practise. (£65 / € 70 Euros) Basically we'd need to book in two 30 minute zoom chats with enough break time in between for you to go and practise and film again. Private lessons will need to be booked very early to make sure we can fit the times in. AUDITING. This is a great option for anyone not sure if they can or will be able to ride / get to their horse etc. There still is A LOT involved with auditing, as you still get to join in all of the zoom chats and go over all of the videos with the group and have access to the event VOV channel indefinitely afterward. So the only things you miss out on are the 2 assignments and the 4 lesson videos (per lesson group). So auditing cost is £ 370 or €420. SPECIAL MENTION I'd also like to add that anyone in Australia can also join in on these lessons. We don't kick off until 5pm Qld time, but if you have lights on your work space or would like to audit for the experience and to meet some of our Nth Hem community members, please feel free to join us. We'd love to have you in the group and to benefit from your experiences also. M
  10. Great tips from everyone here. Ive often had to do the same thing and what Ive learnt that really helps is to use our horses nature of picking up on patterns to our advantage. Mine have different coloured buckets, they always get fed in the same order - top of the pecking order down, and I always feed them in the same spots, just another strategy to help make life easier and clearer!

  13. It can be tough Sarah when you are feeding more than one horse and the feeds are different. If you can't separate them then yes, you'll just have to wait while he finished his. And as the others have said, it's all about personal space. You can really make them wait like a dog....they don't see things that way...but you can expect them to respect your space and your other horses. Generally you'll see this flow on to calmer, more polite feed time manners. M

  15. Sarah_C - this has your name all over it!
  16. Great reminder for everyone, its one of those areas that is so overlooked. Feeding and letting your horse go in the paddock, all things that we can tend to just "do" without understanding the importance of what it means to your horse.
  17. Cool! If you keep it up you'll see it flow into everything... Consistency is the key as Shane said.
  18. Thanks guys. Glad to hear that I'm doing the right thing protecting the gelding and yielding the mare away. What I hadn't considered is what you said Jill - what I'm releasing on. I've tried things a little differently for the last few days and focused on getting her to move away more softly with a better attitude. It worked!

  20. As the leader of your herd, you can choose who to protect and when, but you will need to be fair and consistent, for your horses to except it well.
  21. PS: Thought id mention that I have a feeding ritual. If I am giving hard feeds, I make sure that my horses come in flexed and sniff my hand before they eat. They need to be soft, calm and not pushy. If they sniff my hand and then shove their nose in the bucket ill send them away and ask again. They need to be soft to everything, including the feed bucket!
  22. Hi Sarah, Great question! Feed time sure does bring out the pecking order. Your mare see's herself as the leader of the pack at feed time. You are doing the right thing by protecting your gelding, you are getting browny points from him for doing it... She must see you at about the same level as the gelding during this time.... If at any time they approach you, other horse around or not, in a dominant move they are expecting us to behave the same way as their herd would, either yeild or stand up for your personal space. By using a no contact yield to move her away you are saying please dont come into my space like that.... which is good.... it's what she does and how she behaves and moves while your removing her from that space that matters and what will tell you more... Imagine if it were a lead mare in the paddock that she moved in on.. I don't think she would be allowed back in until she moved soflty, had a nice attitude and was flexed the right way.... So you are doing the right thing in yielding her away, but the overall result will depend on what you release on. Thats what will either build your connection or eat away at it. Hope this helps. Cheers Jill.
  23. Hi Everyone, I want to ask a question around feeding time. My girl is quite the dominant one at feed time with her paddock mate, who is very submissive. I feed them both at the same time with a good distance between them (yield her back, ask for a flex before putting the bucket down and feed her first, then walk over and feed the gelding). After giving them their feed, as soon as I walk away to start poo scooping, my girl will leave her feed, yield the gelding away and want to eat his hard feed. She only has to give him the mare stare and he walks away! So I usually stand by the gelding and protect his space with my stick until he eats his hard feed. If she comes towards me I will use some non-contact yielding with my stick to send her back to her own dinner. My question is - how would she perceive this? Am I damaging the connection between us by protecting the submissive horse or would she see me as a leader? Thanks, Sarah

  25. URGENT HEADS UP - Hi everyone... I've had a number of requests to bump the Summer Lessons back a few weeks to allow folks to organise time off and so on. I am happy to do this and can pretty much slate the same dates in but in August instead of July. I will have to change a couple of other events around though to do this - which should be possible - but I need to hear back from all of you as soon as possible please, if this suits you all better. So the programme would all be exactly the same, just August instead of July. If you could all please give this your attention as soon as you can, I would be very grateful. Many thanks everyone. I hope to see you all over the Summer.

Sadly due to the dreaded virus, this year it will all be online and not in person...but!....as we have already found, there are so many benefits to doing this.
