This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging DVD. On conclusion of viewing the DVD I was already calmer and in a much better place to work with my horses.

The breathing techniques have worked very quickly with the horses I ride.

Thank You

My Jack is responding so well to my breathing, I haven't needed to ask for halt or slowing via his mouth at all.

The result is an holistic approach that includes work on riders’ minds and bodies off the horse and the ability to get horses performing movements when free in a school.

Let The Horse Become Our Teacher

My Journey

let-the-horse-be-the-teacher

A friend gave me a saying, which read 'Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail'.

I gave no more than a listening ear to the messages given to me from my stallion. Some days I found it hard to believe that with love in my heart and awareness of my breathing that a horse would tune in with such a deep connection. Was this my imagination or would this bond lead to more profound revelations, as time passed by?

I was leaving the conventional path of my training technique and launching on an expansive voyage of discovery. I believe personal empowerment gives a sense of freedom of spirit and adventure. If we do not feel empowered from within, we often are fearful, of the reaction of others, to what we may do or say. A spirit of self belief and empowerment gives you the courage to be 'uniquely you' and God made us all as individuals.

Better Connections

Watching Jenny work with her former bull-fighting stallion from the ground, it's clear to see they're both having a ball. Delfin dances around her, responding to her every movement, and changes in response to Jenny's energy levels.

"It started when I first brought Delfin home," she explains. "He wouldn't calmly stay out in a field on his own, because in his previous life he'd been kept in a stable 24/7. When I walked to the gate, he'd come galloping, so I'd stay with him."

better-connections

But while carrying out chores within Delfin's sight line, Jenny began to notice something that she hadn't before. "When I moved, he moved. When I decided to incorporate loosework into his exercise programme, I realised that he was mirroring all my movements." Building this connection from the ground was vitally important in progressing Jenny's work with Delfin, but also lays the foundations of her teaching today.

Loosework is not just about sending your horse away – there should be communication.

Looking At Collection

Collection or Restriction?

How would you define the word 'collection'? I looked this up in the dictionary and found words like 'gathering together' and 'pulling together'. I then looked up the word 'together' and found such definitions as 'in sync', 'in concert' and 'as one'. These last words formed in my mind, the picture of horse and rider performing Classical art, in true collection. When we fully understand what we want to achieve by 'collecting' the horse, then we can look in more depth at the path to achieving this goal.

Horse Image

So what is it that we find so compelling about the horse? Is it his sheer beauty and mystical power or maybe it is his free spirit and connection with his natural environment? It could also be his generous nature which enables us to attempt the control his majestic spirit and power? An animal in freedom will breathe naturally, attuned to the environment and situation around them. They will respond to the laws of nature as they are at one with their world.

Let Your Horse Become the Teacher

My Spanish Pure-bred stallion, Delfin, has been my greatest teacher. He thoroughly enjoys working loose, maybe as a result of past trauma endured as a bullfighting horse.

Some horses appear to cope with this pressure but when I first saw Delfin he was highly anxious in body and mind. I had never ridden a horse with so much nervous, quivering energy and apprehension.

Loose Schooling

An extract from Jenny’s book, Ride From the Heart

‘In allowing a horse to be a horse we can become more effective as trainers’

Loose schooling can give a trainer an opportunity to observe and listen to horses; the gifted horseman will understand that he should regard each horse as an individual and assess the path of training accordingly, building a relationship of trust and love. The time spent training from the ground helps to forge a partnership between horse and trainer, which will be invaluable when ridden work is commenced.
