Kathryn’s horse Roger went from tight, tense, often anxious and bucking under pressure when being ridden, to what you see in the video – in the first day of a recent clinic here at Rokeby. I suspect what you see here and what we talk about in the clinic chat below it, will be specially useful to advanced riders and classical dressage trainers.
p.s. by the third day she was using this connection to ride bridle-less.
The Keys to her success
The keys to her success were as much about what happened BEFORE this footage, than what she was actually doing here – and that is, how Kathryn developed this stunning two way willingness of her and her horse Roger to be so deeply connected to the other.
That deep connection – so deep that her horse was copying her body posture, was achieved by paying attention to and taking action to support Roger to change all the strained / stressed/ tense/ scarey and resistant things that popped up in their relationship together. She’d started that before the clinic (she’s my feet trimmer and took to this philosophy like a duck to water because she was already very kind and sensitive) and then she improved on that brilliantly in the clinic.
We talk more about how and why that worked in this pre-class clinic chat.
The second treat
And that brings me to the second treat, because that super connected feel for your horse and the systematic practical application of that – just like you saw in Kathryn’s video – is exactly what you learn in Fast Track to Brilliant Riding.
I’m so revved up about what you can achieve, that I’m willing to make an offer to you. The Foundation course is $140 these days, so the offer is for all the Fast Track information, and lessons, the monthly live seminars, the student forum, “lifetime” access and awesome support for only $410. You even still get the private lesson from me, no time limit AND the 9 lessons that are in Oliver’s Diary. Corey’s gonna’ kill me. She’s always saying I’m more than a thousand dollars too cheap compared to every one else and more value. I’ll get away without a telling off provided none of you tell her! lol!
You can have a look at Fast Track here, but make sure to come back to THIS page for purchase, because this is the only place you can get this special deal.
” When we push past our horse’s limits we create stress, stress creates tension and all our lovely dreams of poetry in motion and amazing togetherness go flying out the window…” I said this when I was writing about Frederic Pignon and HOW he creates the sheer magic that he has with horses.
Jenny’s clinic melt down / excitement deal for Foundation Students – STILL includes a private session with me with no time limit, Oliver’s Lessons, student only forum, monthly Live Seminar, extra lessons like you’ve had today and “lifetime” access. And did you notice that you beat that last price increase too?
