Knowing your Equine
I thought I knew a lot about horses after almost three decades of studying with well known natural trainers in Canada, USA and the UK, and teaching horsemanship, horse agility and natural hoofcare...I had but scratched the surface. Underneath the skin and bone, there lies a heart and soul of a horse that can be reached only from our heart and soul.
So started my journey a few years back to find the link to that heart and soul. My journey led me to Carolyn Resnick, a California based world class teacher in HORSE. Her method brought me closer to these magnificent animals and within fingertip reach to their true essence. This was a wonderful part of my education. Meeting this dynamic, kind and intuitive woman was to me like meeting Ghandi, or Mother Teresa.
I studied with her and her trained instructors over 3 years. Now I was getting close.
My next step of evolution came from James French, a UK teacher of animal behavior via his THE TRUST TECHNIQUE. I began studying his online Video course in 2017. I was knocked out of my shoes by what he taught. Imagine...a real encounter with the moment to moment thinking and feelings from the horse, or pet, that without lifting a finger towards them, connects to the marrow of their being. WOW! I became a stronger believer in true intuitive communication, which is based on mindfulness with the horse, very non invasive, just being with them in a peaceful state of mind and exchanging thoughts and feelings.
His was not a training program so much as a "connection" program that worked with any animal imaginable...from lions and tigers and bears..to our furry pets. I am sure it would work on an ant!
I have found that these insights have worked wonderfully in creating an even deeper relationship with my own animals. I strongly suggest you check out his on-line mini course to learn about this amazing program. www.trust-technique.com. As he says, "Trust is everything"!
My next journey with Trust Method begins in March, 2020, which will take me through and intensive program to become certified, and gradute as a Trust Technique Consultant. It will be an intense year of study of the

Freedom Horsemanship offers a blending of feelings, thoughts and love between equine and human.
