  2. Shane and I have a VERY busy year coming up ahead of us with rescheduled events squeezed in for the rest of the year. After our months of lock-down and isolation it is great to finally be getting back to live events and doing what I love most.....and that is, getting together with everyone and helping them with their horses. Here in the office we've done our best to make sure all events go ahead at rescheduled dates. So far we've managed to find a space for most of them, but boy-oh-boy what a super busy 6 months it is going to be. Please check out the dates below and be sure to book or confirm your bookings with the QS Office as soon as you possibly can so we can all move forward with confidence. Many thanks for your help everyone. We just want to make sure no one misses out. So please share this or pass on the info if you can. Full details of all events are on the QS Forum calendar and on facebook calendar. Here though is a quick overview. As you can see, there is A LOT on so please do get in touch with the office ASAP if you'd like to book a spot or find out more. I look forward to seeing you all somewhere down the track this year.

  4. HI everyone.....just to let you all know that our next Horse Chat with Meredith and PG online get together will be on Sunday 12th July. We were going to do it at 9am UK time / 10am Germany / Holland but we've had a request to make it 11am UK time. Does that suit everyone? More info on the joint PM or also on our QS Europe/UK facebook chat group. Please do let me know if you'd like to join us. M meri & chook 1.bmp
  5. Hi again...I've had some questions re private lessons and auditing over the summer. Check out the info below.... PRIVATE LESSONS - we begin with an initial zoom chat to discuss what you'd like to look at in your lesson (before the actual lesson). Then I'll get you to film the task so I can see what is happening and how it is going. We'd then do a pre-booked zoom chat where we could look at the video together and go over what is working and not working and things to work on. I'd then get you to go and practise and film it again. We'd then chat once more and look at how it went. So it would be two-fold lesson (in two parts). If we did a 30 minute lesson it would just be the initial chat plus us going over the first video. If we do all 3 chats and two videos it'd be a one hour lesson. 30 mins - $60AUD; initial chat, video the task, second chat where we go over the video together. (£33 / € 35 Euros) 60 mins - $120AUD; as above plus second video and a third chat where we discuss this second video after your practise. (£65 / € 70 Euros) Basically we'd need to book in two 30 minute zoom chats with enough break time in between for you to go and practise and film again. Private lessons will need to be booked very early to make sure we can fit the times in. AUDITING. This is a great option for anyone not sure if they can or will be able to ride / get to their horse etc. There still is A LOT involved with auditing, as you still get to join in all of the zoom chats and go over all of the videos with the group and have access to the event VOV channel indefinitely afterward. So the only things you miss out on are the 2 assignments and the 4 lesson videos (per lesson group). So auditing cost is £ 370 or €420. SPECIAL MENTION I'd also like to add that anyone in Australia can also join in on these lessons. We don't kick off until 5pm Qld time, but if you have lights on your work space or would like to audit for the experience and to meet some of our Nth Hem community members, please feel free to join us. We'd love to have you in the group and to benefit from your experiences also. M

  8. It can be tough Sarah when you are feeding more than one horse and the feeds are different. If you can't separate them then yes, you'll just have to wait while he finished his. And as the others have said, it's all about personal space. You can really make them wait like a dog....they don't see things that way...but you can expect them to respect your space and your other horses. Generally you'll see this flow on to calmer, more polite feed time manners. M

  11. URGENT HEADS UP - Hi everyone... I've had a number of requests to bump the Summer Lessons back a few weeks to allow folks to organise time off and so on. I am happy to do this and can pretty much slate the same dates in but in August instead of July. I will have to change a couple of other events around though to do this - which should be possible - but I need to hear back from all of you as soon as possible please, if this suits you all better. So the programme would all be exactly the same, just August instead of July. If you could all please give this your attention as soon as you can, I would be very grateful. Many thanks everyone. I hope to see you all over the Summer.
  12. Big Exciting News'! Meredith's Summer Lessons are back! . Yep.....3 weeks of group lessons for all levels. Sadly due to the dreaded virus, this year it will all be online and not in person...but!....as we have already found, there are so many benefits to doing this. We'll get the chance to cover so much from the QS programme and together look at your lesson videos which was so helpful in the last online clinic I did. You can go back over them again and again, I can pause the videos and pinpoint exactly what I am referring to and we get to see so many videos...it really builds a tremendous learning experience. So, if you'd like to spend the Summer with me and a very special group of people, check out the Lesson packages and dates below. It will be different and not the same as being together but it will still be so much fun. And fingers crossed I can come back to see you all again next year. I can't tell you just how much I will miss actually being with you all over the summer. This is a very special time for me each yer. Please note, that the lessons are all group lesson of 2 - 6 people. And auditors are very welcome. Times are tough for everyone right now I know, so I have tried to keep the costs right down and QS Members will get an extra 10% off. So overall a huge savings. So take a look and PM me if you are keen. And please do spread the word. QS Members and non members most welcome. All group lessons include: 4 x 3hr lessons 1 x lesson video submission for each day of your course 2 x assignments. Plus all participants receive free auditor status for the entire summer lesson duration. This is a very special offer and at only 470 GBP or 527 Euro per course, a terrific price. (QS members deduct 10%). July 15th to 18th Level 1 Ground work - 8am to 11am UK time Level 2 Online - 11.30am to 2.30pm UK time July 20th to 23rd Level 1 Ridden - 8am to 11am UK time Level 2 Liberty - 11.30m to 2.3pam July 25th to 28th Harmony in Motion - 8am to 11am Level 2 Impulsion - 11.30am to 2.30pm July 30 to Aug 2nd Building Rapport or L3 class ??? - 8am to 11am Level 2 Contact Riding - 11.30am to 2.30pm Check out this link to the calendar event for full details and info.

    Hi everyone...I've had a few more questions re the Summer Lessons and what they entail. I hope this helps. Yes! - you can access the Zoom chats on your phone, so if you are out with your horse during the lessons and can get phone reception, you'll be fine to join in the chats between practise sessions. Yes! - these lessons are for anyone. If you are brand new to QS and want to get started or have recently started, the the Level 1 Ground work group is the ideal lesson to join in with. No! - you don't have to be a current QS member to join in. Yes! - we certainly can do payment plan options for QS members. With a payment plan, all you need to do is get your 25% deposit in and then you can pay the balance over 6 months. Yes! - you can book online. We'll soon have an Eventbrite Booking link for you to book your courses. All you need to do is choose which course and book either for QS Members (with 10% off the course cost) or non-members. There is a lesson group for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all again this Summer and to living our dreams with our horses. M

    SUMMER LESSON FORMAT I've had a few questions re how the events actually work. And what to expect. So.....the days will run something like this...... 8am (UK) - we get together for a 30min (approx) Zoom chat. We'll talk about what the lesson will entail, why we do it and how to do it. The Zoom chat will include us watching a video I have pre-recorded with Charlie, showing how to do the task and what to look out for. 8.30am (UK) - you'll then get 45 mins to go and practise the tasks and in some cases film what you're doing. 9.15am (UK) - we get together again for another Zoom chat to discuss how you got on. We will also look at some of the videos that you've done so I can give you feedback and tips for improvement if needed. We'll also look at the video for the next task. 9.55am (UK) - once again you'll 45 mins to practise and those who didn't film in the first session will have the chance to film in this second session. 10.40am (UK) - we'll meet again for our next Zoom chat and discuss how we got on and again look at some more vidoes for feedback and advice. I'll give you some homework to do before our next lesson the following day, same time. We'll finish for the day at 11.10am. The entire format will be repeated with the next group beginning at 11.30am (UK time). Participants can then either choose to audit the next group or head out for some more practise and videoing. Or both! Remember each participant can upload one video per day as well as 2 assignments per course during each course they do. I will be finishing up at my end at around midnight each day and then the next morning while you are all asleep, I'll be finishing off any videos not previously done, as well as updating our group PM with advice and feedback for the group. Every participant will have access to the VOV channel dedicated to the Summer Lessons, which means you will have literally dozens of videos VOVed by me that you can watch when ever and how often you like, which will give you a massive learning resource at your finger tips. Participants at my previous online clinic last month have commented on just how valuable and helpful this has been....and that was just 2 days. Imagine 3 ENTIRE WEEKS WORTH!!! I hope this answers your questions? Please let me know if there is anything else you'd like to know. M

    Sorry for the typo re the costs folks....it should be 470GBP (sorry I don't have a pounds sign) which is I think Euro527. So this covers your 4 days of groups lessons, 4 videos and 2 assignments as well as auditing all of the remaining Summer Lesson Groups. Please let me know if these lesson subjects and times suit you all. If we can get on to this soon I can make alterations if needed. And for those of you working on Level 3, I can add in more L3 lessons if you like. Just say the word.
