    Heya! How are you getting on now? A lot of yawning could also be a sign that they're worried about something. It's strange as it can be a sign of release as well. But excessive yawning has shown in research, that it was coincidental with the stress hormone (cortisol) increasing in the blood...again, the yawning itself could then be a sign of this stress releasing as well. In QS terms that doesn't mean that you have to stop doing what you're doing, but might give you a clue on to what you're asking of him, could be mentally and/ or emotionally a bit challenging. Helping him through that would eventually reduce the stress and help him grow more confident. A medical thing that excessive yawning is related to, are stomach ulcers. If you're just giving good forage, then that's probably not possible. But if your horse is an ex race horse for example, that had a lot of hard feeds and stress in the past, then it might be something to look into. Hope that helps a bit.

    Natural Worming

    I don´t think we´ll be able to get this in Europe, but I agree with the rotating grazing system (like equicentral system) to help against worms. It´s supposed to be really helping to graze horses with cattle and sheep as well, as they kill each others worms/ eggs apparently.

    QS events Germany and Holland 2018

    Oh Judith!! Thank you so much!!! I've been absent for a couple if weeks after the events, and finding this post has made me quite emotional! Aileen! How amazing was that to see Monty go in that trailer by making his own decisions! It was such a great demo and exactly what I was trying to teach in that moment....Let your horse make up his own mind and let them think for themselves before we intervene and tell them what to do!! They're incredible beings and very intelligent...they don't need to be told what to do all the time!! Well done to you for letting Monty take the offer, release, and letting him think!! You're an amazing bunch in Germany and Holland! I feel honoured to be your coach and to see you all taking it in and developing as horsemen. Judith...You're going to have so much fun and learning in Australia!!
