Do you have these skills for connection?

In this week’s video, I want to share a little bit more about a free Workshop that’s going on right now.

It’s called, Well Connected and it’s all about how you can cultivate more feel and connection with your horse.

There’s a lot of excitement about the results riders are having with their horses by utilizing the skills, behaviors and routines in the Workshop.

I thought you might want to know a little more about it so you don’t miss it.

Heh, it’s Barb.

In this week’s video, I want to share a little bit more about a free Workshop that’s going on right now.

It’s already started. It will be extended through the rest of this week.

It’s an introduction to some very simple exercises you can do to develop more feel and more connection with your horse.

The information is a combination of Personal Performance Training, horsemanship, my experience with training cutting horses and showing.

It’s a very unique perspective and a powerful one.

I’m going to walk through this graphic with you.

The red circle is breath. That has to do with being grounded.

This element is about getting calm, yet engaged before and during your ride. Your breath is one awesome way to come back to this internal state if you get frazzled for any reason during your ride.

The second ring has the word ‘Seat’. This has to do with not only finding a good position in the saddle and having good body alignment… but also maintaining it throughout your ride by bringing your attention back to your seat often.

This element works hand in hand with being grounded.

The third ring is ‘Energy’. This has to do with your ability to be proactive in creating rhythmic patterns with your horse through your seat and breath. It also has to do with your ability to bring your energy back down at any time you find yourself getting over-excited for any reason.

The fourth ring is ‘Cuing’ which has to do with communicating consistently and clearly with your horse in a systematic way. That has to do with developing a smooth flow of cues and responses to your horse.

That is only a tiny thumbnail sketch about the Well Connected free Workshop. I think you will really love it.

We would love to have you be with us!. Click this link to join us.

  2. The step by step approach is a huge help. Just got in from a ride during which my sweet mare demonstrated her ability to Piaf!! I could actually enjoy the experience due to the thinking and messages in this class. A herd of horses galloped across a field toward us as we gathered cattle this morning and she was not sure the fence would stop them. I kept breathing, kept thinking core and legs like hinges and cultivating quiet and a soft, heavy seat as she piaffed and snorted with her tail in the air. The cowboys were all in a hurry and I was mentally at the Spanish riding school in my blue jacket on my dressage horse. I just watched the video on the Core community Facebook page last night!
    As I listened to this message this morning I realized the part I missed and can really improve is my eyes. I only partly kept them on the cattle. Should I have never lost focus? I wonder how that would have affect her return to business? What great food for thought!!
    I cannot thank you enough for sharing your time and talents with us!! Love this course.
    We got the cattle gathered.
    My next question is how to improve relationships with champion cowboys who have such a different approach. The agenda is more important than the people or the cattle. I love to go smooth and easy and they are all about fast. They would rather go fast, have the cattle break and have to deal with that than smooth and steady. The cattle are my husband and mine, but he no longer rides and … well, enough said.
    I just kept thinking about Jackie Kennedy saying “never let them see you cry.” When I got into the pickup to go to town for the cattle trucks, Jeremy Camp’s new song about giving God control was playing and it really ministered to my heart. God bless you for your leadership, Barb.
