Here’s what some people have said about their distance lessons – I’ve pulled out the ones sent to Mark at Horseconscious after we did some work together.
Mary wrote to Mark after her lesson:
AMAZING! Just had a teleconference session with Jenny Pearce and there’s no other word to capture the dramatic shift I’m experiencing in my body and in my riding. If you want to help your horse with his skills under saddle, start here first in a session with Jenny. It will help you in becoming more fluid, balanced, and expressive in your own body which in turn benefits your horse sooo much.
The way she works with you is light-years ahead of the traditional riding instruction!
Tara wrote to Mark too:
I just had a lesson with Jenny. She has an incredible ability to connect at such a distance, she in Australia, and me on the east coast of Canada. She could really tune into what was happening and together she helped me worked through some tensions I had been carrying around for quite awhile. My body & Spirit needed this!! I know the greater clarity and freedom open the doors for better and more clear communication with our horses. Thanks Mark for having her on. I love the work she is doing. Tara
Hello Mark –
the other day I had another session with Jenny Pearce whom I was originally connected to via the webinar on your horseconscious site. I briefly mentioned to you previously how much of an impact that webinar had on me, and the private session and live seminar I subsequently participated in with her have each brought forth further awareness at a profound level.
I find her capabilities and method of teaching/guiding to be well beyond what we normally encounter in the horse world. And, I love the way she works with people, not from a ‘my way is the way, so follow me’ attitude, but through an open and exploratory approach which suits each individual at whatever level they may be and with whatever issue they may need assistance addressing, whether it be in riding, communicating with a horse, doing healing work on a horse, helping to resolve an issue with the herd, or whatever.
Glad you brought Jenny to my attention through the horseconscious website – you’ve provided a great resource and I’m definitely looking forward to working further with her
all the best — Mary McNerney

I really enjoyed the webinar presentation by Jenny Pearce on April 13th. I was quite intrigued by Jenny’s ability to not only connect with a participant through the internet for the lesson presented but also by the validation that was given back to Jenny in relation to riding a horse with lightness. I took advantage of Jenny’s special offer for the on-line lessons as well as a private session. I wasn’t quite sure what I could possibly get out of the session since it would be via the internet but I felt I had nothing to loose. My desire was to find a way to remove fear from the equation for me to learn how to ride in a safe and fun way.
I’m still in awe as to how Jenny could tap into my energy field and be so acutely aware of the small changes I was making with my body as we sorted things out for me to find a “natural seat” without muscle tension. Jenny is gifted in her ability to connect with others.
If you have ever experienced an energetic shift with buried emotions, feelings, and fears being released along with the “clearing” out phase for the transition to occur, then you will understand the dramatic changes that occurred for me. I found a new meaning to “soft eyes” and the tremendous influence it was having on my body. I became deeply aware of multiple body parts I thought were relaxed yet were actually holding onto significant muscle strain and mental stress. By the time our session ended, I felt a huge weight lifted off my body, my energy was flowing, and my mental clarity was enhanced. My personal experience was more than I expected in terms of unlocking the key to gaining comfort, closeness and connection with my horse. Since our session I’ve had many consistent, joyous moments with my horse and multiple breakthroughs of learning for both of us, especially teaching her new exercises.
Little did I know, the session would focus more on me and what my body was speaking than it would be about working with my horse. However, I’ve often read “if you want changes in your horse, then you need to work on changing yourself first”. I truly experienced the quietness and awareness of breathing, the power of soft eyes, the subtle ways of increasing the comfort zone and much more insight that has greatly enhanced my relationship and partnership with my horse. Most important, I found a way to address fear issues, whether mine or my horse’s, that allows each of us to return to a safe and comfortable space of being.
I’m extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Jenny and I attribute my recent success to our session together. Anyone looking for a deeper relationship within themselves, especially concerning fear, that could possibly be interfering with their connection to their horse, would truly benefit from working with Jenny.
