  1. Welcome Riddhima and Bill. Enjoy your journey with QS.
  2. 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.

  11. We had an lovely day with our horses at Fingal beach yesterday. The calmness & maturity of our older QS horses were a great support to Eli & Nevada who are at the beginning of their QS journey. Having developed our connection & leadership with our horses also gave them confidence. We had to walk along a footpath & cross a road. It was Nevada’s first time at the beach & the surf was pounding. Nevertheless, using offer & release & the calmness of the other horses, Nevada quickly gained confidence & happily walked out into the surf even with waves crashing into his side. We encountered families, dogs, planes & more and yet our guys walked on relaxed. When people ask why I do the QS program, this is why!
  12. We had so much fun today for our WBPD. There will be more to come, but here is just a sample,
  13. Great question Jen, and I am looking forward to responses. I am working on this one too. I have to change my muscle memory and ride lightly and maintain lightness in my reins. Whilst my reins need to be short enough to have contact I keep the same feel and ask Dusty to soften laterally if she is heavy on one or both of the reins. My thoughts are that Clancy will give you soft feel and lift through his back without any tension and with a loop in the reins and wow doesn't it look lovely when you see it! I know Meredith has said and has demonstrated a horse in collection bb and bridle less. I think it would be a progression as Clancy build his emotional and physical fitness. Congratulations on your progress.
  14. Thanks Shane. Most helpful.
