  1. I thought Id share this beautiful video Alice made way back in 2018 as a school project while we were in QLD at Woolooga together.
  2. Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce a few new members from the QS Outback tribe.... Welcome to Caroline and Alice Booth, from Booligal in NSW. Alice has a gorgeous pony named Forest. They have submitted and had a blue tick for their first assignment, The Approach. They haven't wasted any time and from reports have filmed the ever tricky Skills Check for feedback... Caroline and her beautiful black horse (I'm a bit partial to beautiful black horses) Pearl have also submitted their first assignment for feedback. Welcome to the QS Outback team guys, its so much fun having you both on board.
  3. I am! I have been doing my homework too!
  4. Hi everyone, Just thought I'd share a few contact numbers for those of you who are travelling North, South East or West You never know when you need a good contact. So here are mine... Connabarabran: The show society's secretary is 0499581865. I have never used their stalls, instead use the rodeo yards. There is access to water and safe yards. The Pilliga Pottery: between Coonabarabran and Narrabri. This gorgeous place is 11km in off the highway. Its a dirt road that can be corrugated but what is at the other end is awesome. There are timber cattle yards with water. You can camp or rent a room. They have a licenced restaurant and don't care what time you arrive, they will feed you. One time we even got to watch them milk a cow and turn it into ice cream. Narrabri Show Grounds: 0267923913 is the caretakers number. There are stalls, a large sand arena and out in the middle of the track is a rodeo yards. I sneak my guys out there at sunset. There are totterst that start early so might be a good idea to get them out prior or you'll have to wait between cars. (they tow the horses behind utes). Moree Show Grounds - Pull up on the western side near the power box. You can have access to the rodeo arena or the small pen going into it. Its lovely grass and near the shower and toilet blocks. The other option is the eastern side, but no toilets and only stalls. Contact Ann and let her know your on your way. 0428205098 Moree Sale Yards: 0428522358. There are large paddocks with troughs behind the sale yards. I think Sale day is tuesday. There is always a lot of trucks coming and going so a bit noisy but there is a beautiful grassed area out the front. The yards are managed by and agency and the caretakers house is rented out to a local so don't worry about harassing him. Dont forget im on the way. 80kms south of Cobar. 0400364444. Ruby Davies is in Dubbo and would love to see anyone heading north. Please contact me for her number. Last trip home I called into Wee Waa show grounds and they are outstanding. Gorgeous town too. Milmerran Showgrounds: 0427951241 Raymon. Hope that is helpful.
  5. Cool! If you keep it up you'll see it flow into everything... Consistency is the key as Shane said.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Nice work Deb! Congratulations on your wonderful achievement! Hope your smiling from ear to ear!
  9. HI Jen, Of course I'd love to be involved. I would love to come down and do some more stuff with you and the Brumbies and hopefully help one find a forever home.
  10. Hi all, Last weekend I attended, along with 18 others, the very first Virtual Clinic with Meredith. I don't know what it was that made it so good, was it that I didn't have to travel, the amount of down time, less "doing time" with more time to think, maybe it's the ability to go back and look at all the VOV's of the videos that people subbed when ever I feel I need an better understanding of something or to find an answer, or maybe the way everyone shared their experiences so openly, and that no matter what the discussion I could apply it to my next session and see what happened. I really enjoyed it, having experienced so many camps and clinics I think I can rate this amongst the best ways for me to learn for me now with the skills and knowledge that I have. With the current restrictions for gatherings I couldn't think of a better way to connect with my coaches and other students around the world to learn and progress. Looking forward to the next one! Many Many thanks Meredith
  11. Jen Im sorry I missed this... congratulations on getting his Level 1! I cant wait to see him prancing around in Level 3!
  12. I'd love to join too Meredith. I will do it with Fizz. So pre Level 1... Not sure about the girls yet, Ill check with them....
  13. I couldnt be more happy for you Kerry. You both definitely deserve your string.
  14. Wow Meredith, Congratulations on taking the huge leap of faith. Trusting the belief your coach has in you, and trying a new paradigm. It sure does pay off. Enjoy the new relationship with your horse! Jill

  16. Ohhh bugger Jane..... sucks when the lesson is a hard one. Like Meredith said there is plenty of reading, listening and pondering to be done in our less physical times. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
  17. Congratulation Aileen. Isn't Monty so lucky to have you for his human. I commend you on your courage and commitment to your horse and yourself. You are literally 1 in a million and a super special chick! Have fun in Level 2!

    Facing The Truth

    Nice Trace, being a true horseman means that you will always be willing to dig deep, look at what needs to be changed...and be willing to do and go to where ever it needs to be to do that. Oh and being a nice person helps too!
  20. Ha ha! I was waiting for the blooper! Soooo far so good! Cant wait to see the fulll take!
  21. Congratulations Kerry and Ozzie! Well done Fiona! So many positives and amazing examples of what people need to see and do to achieve their dreams in your story. Physio, the time it takes to heal, seeing when your horse needs help, acknowledging that you need help and its ok, seeing what's in the best interest for you and your horse, seeking help, asking, trusting, keeping in contact, throwing your heart out there and going after it. Trusting in the process. Finding the right people. So many people bauk at any one of these obstacles and stop. My hats off to you Kerry for seeing through it and keeping on keeping on. Reminds me of your coaches attitude to things.... funny how you find your people in life isn't it! Congratulations, how exciting!
  22. looking forward to the installments
  23. Cool now that sounds like fun! Glad to hear what a fabulous success it was. Now where can i get some obstacles like that!
  24. Hi everyone, If you are in a fire danger area and would like to get out, please feel free to come here. I know we are a long way away from the coast and QLD fires but if you can and you'd like to get out to an area not at risk of burning please know that anyone can come here and stay until it's safe to return home. Stay safe. Jill.
  25. Stay safe everyone. I have been thinking of all the QS family that is being affected by fires. If there is any way I can help please reach out.
