  1. Congratulations Kerri & Ozzie. Awesome achievement!
  2. That would be awesome VikiK.

    I'm very new to the QS philosophy but I am trying to soak it all in! I am leasing a horse full time. His name is Katana and it's been lovely to re-connect with horses after a very long break....over 20 years. When I was younger I didn't really do any lessons or go to clinics I just winged it (a lot of sheer determination!) and I had a close knit community of  kind, horse loving friends I used to ride with...mainly trail riding it the Adelaide Hills. So now I've found this beautiful gypsy cob, cross Clydesdale, cross standard bred  - and he is a bit green trained - 10 years old, not ridden for approx 3 years. Quite challenging at times. 6 months in and Sharon (at same paddock) has converted me to QS. My goal is to get Katana and myself trail riding again.

    Cheers

  3. Congratulations Aileen & Monty. Wonderful achievement!
  4. You & Spydie make it look how it’s meant to look. Relaxed, confident & fun.
  5. Bravo Meredith! Well said. I’m taking the same approach. Enjoy the journey & the the discoveries.
  6. Congratulations to everyone on your blue & purple ticks. Wonderful achievements. They’re a testament to the power of summer lessons to propel us towards achieving our goals. Personally, my love for this program has been rekindled this summer & I am enjoying the new discoveries I’m making with my horse. Very much looking forward to our final lesson & then up to Woolooga for the contact weekend. Hopefully a blue and/or purple tick by the end of it. Vicki
  7. Congratulations Kerri, you may be on cloud nine.
  8. It will be so timely for us. Dusty was giving me some nice h/q in and out of the circle yesterday. We were also getting counter canter on the circle.... I just have to figure out what I did to achieve it lol.
  9. Hi Meredith, l want to book in for this weekend, level 3. How should I pay for it? Will I wait for an invoice to be sent? thanks Vicki
  10. Welcome Riddhima and Bill. Enjoy your journey with QS.
  11. We have just had our first summer lesson here at Murwillumbah & it was terrific. Fun, thought provoking & motivating. Meredith is the most marvellous teacher. I forgot how much I enjoy the company of other QS students. Whilst we got back to basics with short range circles and barrel jump, approaching it from a Harmony in Motion perspective added a more intricate level of communication with our horses. We learnt that it is also a good assessment tool for how your horse is feeling & travelling. Communicating with individual feet blew my mind! Backwards falling leaf is really getting Dusty & I thinking hard. I was reminded to give release in motion when Dusty was in the right position. I had not been giving her enough release. It’s an excellent task for getting those hindquarters working. I am working on my long range HIM assignments & h/q control (last assignment left for level 3). When it comes to the barrel jump, I am looking for Dusty to stay curved over the jump. She tends to straighten over the jump. Do I help her by asking her inside hind to step under as she is about to take the step over the jump or can I do it in mid air? Do I move with her staying near her hind & helping her curve? I think I’m still learning what to look for. Feel of the rope is an indicator. Head staying low. Hind foot landing under her. At this stage, she is tending to straighten over the jump. If not laterally soft I am going back to the short range.
