Well, here we are in 2021.

I feel basically the same. I’m excited! I don’t think I’ve aged that much in the past few days by entering a new year.

But all kidding aside, there’s something so cathartic about a new beginning and a new year.

And boy, am I ready!

As I was about to create a fun video for you today for our Trail to 2021 series, I was feeling a little under the weather and not my usual wild elf self. So instead of pushing through to do the video, I’m sending this short audio to you instead.

Fingers crossed that I’ll continue the Trail to 2021 series next week.

And oh my gosh, 2021 is upon us. Can you believe it?

Last week I asked about your accomplishments in 2020… or some of your highlights from in this year of so much pain and chaos.

I asked you to think back to where you’ve come from since this time last year… and to enjoy that perspective. And we’re doing all of this in the spirit of designing the next chapter in our story for 2021.

Now that we appreciate all of the good things from 2020, let’s take the next step and look forward to 2021. That’s what this video is all about.

Trail to 2021: True Tales (and tails!)

December 4, 2020 by · 15 Comments

As we all know, 2020 has been quite the year. I don’t need to explain that to you! It seems like EVERYTHING just kept changing.

I thought it would be fun to get a jump start on looking back over 2020 in these last few weeks of December… and… very importantly… where we want to go in 2021.

Together, over the next 5 videos, we’re going to take a look back; we’re going to check out where we are now, and we’re going to look forward to what we want to create with our horses in 2021.

My hope is that you enjoy this series of videos. And perhaps, in the process, we’ll create a new story for what we’ll design in our horse lives as we move forward into a new year.

This video is about one powerful question you can ask yourself. It can give you an empowered perspective about where you are now as you look forward to 2021.

Last week I was honored to be interviewed by Warwick Schiller for his podcast, The Journey On.

Warwick and I had fun talking about a number of topics over our hour and a half time together:

  • Competitive experiences and skills
  • Changing directions in our horse lives
  • The role of thought, emotion, and physicality in riding
  • Fear and perspectives for how to walk through it
  • Navigating grief
  • And more…

If you’re not familiar with Warwick, I know you will enjoy meeting him on this podcast. He is a delight and very wise about both horses and people!

Enjoy and let me know what you think.

One thing we all have in common is wanting to become better horsemen and horsewomen.

There are a lot of moving pieces and parts to developing your technical and your mental skills for riding.

Because of how I think, I like to keep things as simple as possible!

Today’s video is all about how our body parts impact our horse’s body parts. So if you’re having a problem with a horse in a maneuver, one of the first places to look is to yourself. What are you doing with your body?

Over the past two months, I developed 12 exercises you can do with your horse to develop more feel and connection. It’s called Well CONNECTED.

As in all of my courses, I open and close them. On Tuesday, November 10th I’m going to wrap up access to this course.

Today’s video is a summary of the key points of that course. I think you’ll find a lot of good ideas to help you connect more with your horse.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been observing riders who are absolutely killing it… recreational riders, teachers, coaches, and competitive riders.

I’ve observed 3 things in all of them make them stand out, and inspire me.

I hope becoming more clear about these 3 attributes inspires you, too.

And the best news is, all three are yours for the taking! You have to do them for yourself consistently.

What does flexing your horse mean to you?

There are lots of ways people apply this idea of flexing to their personal style of riding. I’m going to talk specifically about doing an exercise after you mount your horse and before you take your first step.

This exercise is best for a horse that has some time on him (i.e. I am not talking about when you first start a horse).
