When I was broke, when our lives caved in, when my husband had a horrific accident that Workcare didn’t remotely cover and the financial burden crippled us, when I had a breakdown, when we lost our farm – what could a Fast Track program have done for us back then? For me? And then for us as a family?
It would have taught me how to find my peaceful centre repeatedly. It would have taught me how to problem solve for the best result for us – from (and for) a place of peacefulness and even joyfulness no matter what else was going on in my life, with my beautiful horses leading the way easily.
And I could have shown my kids how to find that too, instead of not getting out of bed for days on end…
It would have taught me how to reciprocate with my horses the great gift they were already bringing me of calming me a little in every day of adversity – it’s just that the adversity was so great they couldn’t keep up! It would have taught me how to ESCALATE the gift that the horses were already bringing me, with the reciprocity of horses healing people and people healing horses and all the time getting vastly better results with my horses.
I didn’t have Fast Track or anything like it 24 years ago and I was overwhelmed and under-resourced mentally and emotionally and physically, to cope with everything that was happening. I WAS incredibly blessed though, to have horses and to have unfold in front of me, 24 years of personal growth that has at times knocked my own socks off. And I am FILLED with gratitude for that.
I spent 24 years learning how to do life and horses easier. The way that we “be” with horses now, is the result of all that learning and it shaves DECADES off other people’s struggling to be really good with horses and with life.

Who these Scholarships are for
These three Fast Track Scholarships – One $1500 program completely free and two 1/2 priced scholarships, are all of them completely supported as if they were paid in full. They are for 3 people who are going through hard times – who both need Fast Track AND need a bit of a hand financially. A difficult or unhappy horse, life has served someone a tornado, a human suffering from depression, horses and/ or people unwell, or even just if you know someone who is serious about wanting to be a better rider and could do with a big dose of joyfulness on a much gentler path with their horse and can’t afford it.
When I say you need to have an open mind, it’s not blind obedience to some crazy theory – you’ll get lots of validation of how this stuff works so powerfully, with practical results really quickly (it’s not called Fast Track for nothing 🙂 ) yet for the vast most part it’s sooo… gentle. But you DO need to be willing to try something different.
Very few people would have known how desperate things were for us. So please share this around generously and share it with your own stories. There’s sooo many of you students with such poignant stories. There’s some icons below to help you do that. And in the comments too please!
