  5. Hey everyone, I want to share a big success with you! It was ca. 3 weeks ago...... On this day it was very warm and after training I disconnected us and let him go a bit in the riding area . He layed down but didn’t stand up again. First I was a bit scared and went to him, but when I was next to him he layed down completly with his head on my legs and finally he closed his eyes completly! It was like a magical moment.... A few days later he did it again and I wanted to test some things. When he layed down completly, I stand up and went away....and look, he wanted to stand up too! I sat down on his back and fokused up. Monty stand up with me on his back! It was a wonderful moment!! Aileen

  13. Sending my love and thoughts to you and your friends Sarah. I
  14. He's a lucky boy Jen! Looking forward to watching and sharing this journey!
  15. Spot on! I guess on a personal development side of things too, if we can read an article that that Jen and we can look at all they have said and claimed without it causing emotion, then we are on the right path as horsemen and humans too.......If we can look at information put before me and sort through it objectively and without judgement Id be pretty happy with that. Im working on it!
  16. Do you have the photo USB Fiona? M
  17. He he, sounds tricky. What is collection and self carriage to the person? I would say collection And self-carriage is the same thing. You can't have one without the other! So when do we start self-carriage? Here is the tricky bit that the others seem to miss. Self-carriage is lateral softness in all gaits. So the real question is when do we start lateral flexion But wait! Lateral flexion comes from trust and rapport! Right, so the real question is when do we start building trust and rapport? But wait, to be able to give trust and offer rapport there would need to be unconditional love for the horse! Maybe this is why some people never get collection and self-carriage.! Something to ponder .
  18. Dreams become realities at QSE! In 2020 spend 5 to 10 days immersed in horsemanship! The Early Bird Discount is still available, save 20% off your camp or if you are a returning rider save 30%. For a limited time only. Send myself or Meredith a message for dates and details.
  19. The horse training courses in September are approaching fast! This is your last chance to book your horse in for training with Meredith or another QS Professional Horse Trainer. Send myself or Meredith a message to talk about how horse training could benefit your horse. I have personally had my horse Pearl trained by both Meredith and Mel and I can't reccomend them both highly enough!
  20. ARTICLE HIGHLIGHT Time to change – by Meredith Ransley In this informative article, Meredith discusses the immediate need for change in the horse industry. She explains how deaths around horses are unacceptable and sheds light on some very common and misinformed beliefs. Belief number one: That horses are dangerous. Belief number two: That it’s okay to ride dangerous horses as long as we wear a helmet and use the right gear on the horse. Read more at this link - https://meredithransley.com.au/time-to-change/

  23. hmm...that´s really interesting! I think there is no defined moment to start looking (in this case looking means `asking for` or `build on it` for me) for collection as it depends on so many factors...physique, breed, mental/emotional/physical fitness, impulsion, softness, balance, etc...connection and communication, too, of course...every horse is different, so I would simply say you should start "looking for" collection when the horse is ready for it and offers it to you which it will do sooner or later through the programme, just when it´s ready Great question to think about, I´m curious to hear the others opinion!
  24. Recently I was quite disappointed from an article that came my way, with the topic being when to start training your horse for collection and self carriage. Even though horsemanship seems to have come a long way, some old methodologies and mindsets are hard to break. Anyway I wanted to throw it out there in our QS Community - when do you think you should start looking for collection. I know what my answer is but I want to know what you all think too. Yes it probably is a bit of a trick question.....
  25. Enjoy your journey with Toby Jen!
  26. mel

    Cow camp

  27. So sorry to hear this Sarah. Yes, it is a reminder not to get complacent with our safety habits.
