What am I trying to achieve when working with a client?

My main aim is to make sure my clients have a “Tool Kit” to use when working with their horses.

I always go into a lesson with a plan, but it is important to understand that the plan is fluid, and sometimes we need to deviate, and work our horse through an issue, in a positive and constructive manner.

The tool kit with give the rider a number of ways to work though issues which will enhance their relationship with their horse, and stop them getting stuck in a “Training rut”.



New year here we come!

Happy new year to everyone!

This year will be an interesting one, and I m looking forward to it. It has started off will a ‘Mild” case of the flu for me, and lots of heavy rain.

So, I have spent some time with my new book.

“Making it Happen”  By Carl Hester.

It is his autobiography, it is very candid, very funny, and I know that it has a good ending…so far.I expect there to be a follow on in many years to come!

It is inspirational reading for anyone involved with horses. For me especially, it captures some of the “horse world” that I grew up with and puts character to the people that I idolized while I was taking my first steps into equestrianism.

It is also good to hear some of the “tales” surrounding Donnersong, and some of it echos the “issues”  I have had to overcome with Storm.

A very good read.
