  1. Big welcome to Bee and Gary to QS

    Welcome Bee & Gary. You are in for an exciting horsemanship journey.
  2. Harmony in Motion camp Crystal Creek ta-dahs

    Georgia, your post sums up beautifully the changes in both you and Pearl throughout the HIM camp. I can't tell you how delightful it was to see you both in action. Gave me goosebumps when Pearl gave you a right lead canter off an offer. It was no less a delight to see the positive changes in Miss Chief & Lorraine and Allan & Zena. It was a truly inspirational camp. Like you I am still downloading everything we learnt from the camp and I am continuing to rediscover the things we learnt each time I get out and practise with my horse. My thoughts about HIM is that in its essence it is simple and so elegant. Don't get me wrong, whilst it is simple it is not always easy!! It requires skill which only practise will give me. Each of us made discoveries about our horses, ourselves and our relationship with our horses. For me, it highlighted how my indecisiveness and not being clear about my personal space was really effecting my relationship with Dusty and how she carries herself. Dusty knows my gaps and reasonably exploits them because I let her. I learnt that Dusty does not appreciate me not being clear and tells me in no certain terms by travelling around with her ears back and with brace in her. The amazing thing I learnt from this camp is that if I am clearer, protect my personal space, am generally more decisive and give release, Dusty travels beautifully and is so much happier I know without a doubt that HIM is an integral component of everything we do with our horses. I am determined to work through all the HIM assignments, because I know it will make me a better horseman and it is imperative I do this for Dusty if she is going to have a long and healthy life because she is using self carriage. I also want to give my young QH Nevada the best gift I can by encouraging him to have good self carriage . Finally, I want to thank Meredith for all her wisdom, skill, patience and humour. I am totally in awe of you.

      and how in the process we show our horses we are good leaders?

      Important too Liz. I thought we might discuss a theme that has been significant here at horse training & relates to ego. Encouraging a positive attitude in our horse.
