QUICK FIX OR QUICK RESULTS? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
It is human nature to want everything now or even yesterday and when we come across situations with our horses that confront, confuse and even scare us, it is easy to go for a “quick fix” because we want it sorted NOW. The bad news is there are no “quick fixes” with horses. We believe that everything you ever want to do with your horse is based on a solid foundation of safety, communication, trust and respect and if things are going pear shaped it is because there are holes in your foundation.
Now there is nothing “wrong” with the fact that there is a hole in your foundation – just consider there is something going on for your horse that you haven’t yet distinguished. Consider that you “can’t see what you can’t see” and you “don’t know what you don’t know”. We teach you to “see” the things that are missing in your relationship. You will distinguish what is going on for your horse – the things that will make a huge difference to him. You will get fast or “quick” results but they will be results that you can replicate and maintain for the rest of your life. Results that give you SAFETY, CONFIDENCE, CONNECTION and PERFORMANCE.

Having returned from 6 weeks on the road we were looking forward to a nice relaxing break over the Christmas and New Year period – but sometimes the universe has different ideas. We had one last mare (Gemma) due to foal and as we had had all colts this year we were keeping our fingers
Our Spring 2016 Clinic run in the South Island was a spectacular trip and we wanted to share it with you.
