  1. Sunday the 14th July is our play day. Please let me know if you are coming so that we can plan the spaces we will need for everyone to make the most of our fabulous facility. Look forward to getting together and share our recent QS experiences. Arena time is 9am to 11am.
  2. Explore!!!! Please arrive by 8.30 so that we can have the paperwork out the way and don't lose arena time. $10 paid to the venue. Now that we have a new venue and our members have finished their camps it's time to come together and test it out with numbers. We have the arena for 2 hours. Then the property after that. Fiona will also be there for lessons so don't miss out. Look forward to seeing you all there. 475 Kennedys Rd Poomona/Cooroy
  3. My daughter Maya bought Murphy to start her horsemanship journey. Due to health issues she is not making much progress and Murphy needs to keep going so I have taken over. Murphy has had one previous owner who had her started at 7years old then unfortunately had a non horse related accident breaking her back and was unable to progress with Murphy. She was devastated as they have know Murphy since birth. She was started by Ken Faulkner and had only been played with and ridden bareback at the walk since being started. She was then 9 and the owner did not want her to go to waste but did not want to go just anywhere. She put a low price on Murphy but would only let her go to a horsemanship home. We were the first people allowed to see Murphy and that was thanks to being QS students. Murphy let me catch her which apparently she does not do easily. After assessing her I was pretty sure that we could help her. She had an issue with her ear which is believed caused by a family member ear twitching her to saddle her. (Not for sure but believed this to be). She also did not like the saddle and had an odd response to being girthed but neither seemed to problematic. She also invaded space when scared which was also easily helped. Maya has completed 3 assignments so our journey starts from here. We have managed to get a saddle for Murphy made by Peter Vellacott so we are pretty sure any problem will not be the saddle. Murphy has been going on rides out with our neighbor and me and Gulliver and is going really nicely on these short rides. I had my first play today where I ran through the homework cards from the start and worked through any bits we found along the way that needed some more practice. We got through and included up to Saddling and Float loading. We made some great progress with her personal space and her emotional fitness in tight spaces and over barrels as well at reducing stress in relation to ropes over her head and her ear. Tomorrow we will touch on these rusty bits and hopefully progress to ridden homework too. She has been stuck in the first part of level one for nearly a year so I am trying to mix it up a bit to keep her curiosity and enthusiasm. This certainly is so much more fun the second time round. I am going to have two awesome horses.
  4. Due to some personal health reasons I have found moving forward with Gulliver really challenging. There are also many current stresses in my life which is putting a huge block on my progress. For the health of me and my family my new goals are as follows. I will be continuing with Gulliver very slowly with some of the ridden in level two and ground work HIM and Level 3 as much as my physical health lets me. I am also taking over Murphy as Maya will be pulling out of QS for a while for health reasons. She needs time and so that Murphy does not get forgotten I will be putting her through level one just to make sure she is a safe mount for Maya. Maya will then be able to enjoy her horse while she regains he health. I am sure Maya will rejoin in the future should she wish to persue her horsemanship. Writing this down helps me to keep focused. My real passion is helping horses and by taking Murphy through level 1 I can test out what Gulliver has taught me and hopefully help Murphy much more smoothly. We had our first play today and I felt we made some great progress. Gully had his day yesterday at our play day.
  5. Gulliver is being awesome. I had a lesson with Meredith and have been practicing all the aspects that have come from that lesson. I had a lot of pennies drop. My slow progress has of course been time. The thing I do love is that no matter how long in between Gulliver is always willing and has never forgotten anything. I am still loving my saddle and have been doing a little trail riding, more for mental health as well as getting some klms for Maya's horse as a neighbor is helping me get her out as Maya is so busy. It has been good for Gully too. He is doing so well with mowers and traffic etc that we find on our travels. The part of the program we are up to also requires a level of fitness I do not have at the moment. I use to have one good foot but now my other Achillies is swollen I am in quite some pain after a short time so I will be just inching along as my body allows me to. I love being a part of Quantum Savvy so I don't really care how long I take. I just love the journey
  6. On Sunday the 10th I will be opening the gates at Cooroy Pony Club at 8am. A great chance to practice those homework cards. I would also like to try some game ideas. The idea is to make our play day a little more fun and challenging. Can you all please bring along an object of your choice. This is to give me an extra challenge too. It can literally be anything. Look forward to seeing you there.
  7. Time for a movie night with Maya I think. This will help us connect again to the really important reasons behind. Thanks Shane
