My soulmate, during lockdown I have been very fortunate to have her company. The weather has been wonderful and she made me feel wonderful this day. She always lifts my spirits and when we are alone riding together it feels like freedom, when our family are separated and movements restricted this is FREEDOM.
Chester is coming on really well having spent time building a foundation and relationship with The Waterhole Rituals I have backed him and he seems to enjoy riding.
Update on Chester.
Mambo with Maya. This girl can move!
Dancing the Tango with Noonoo.
My mentor Carolyn Resnick and the horse I fell in love with at her Ranch.
A snapshot from our recent Waterhole Rituals clinic is Surrey. Thanks to Sandy Piper photography for the stunning pictures.
During the recent unexpected snow it was very cold, the girls were full of energy as they didn’t go out much. Here is our snow dance you can see how they needed to let off steam, despite this they kept their focus and connection with me and we all felt better for our fun in the snow.
Our way of going bitless is improving all the time at first it was difficult to achieve any balance and self carriage, I have had to work much harder on me and my position but we are feeling very comfortable and enjoying our ‘ work in progress ‘ towards bitless classical dressage.
Recently Noo noo has let me know we can do this together, it was very much her idea and not something I had worked towards. It came from the close connection and relationship we share.
Working with Tonto who I had only just met, at Treetops Farm. Thanks to his owner Claire Ryall , Linda Salinas and Valentina for the chance to dance with a great guy.
Asking permission to ride has been very important for my horses, at liberty you get the truth.
Re visiting working with the girls together, it is still evolving and as my relationship with Maya grows it becomes easier.
A video showing a little peak into the Waterhole Rituals.
Sharing territory can be the start of an adventure of a lifetime with your horse.
On April 1st I traveled to wales and had an amazing day sharing the Waterhole Rituals.
Maya, starting to really connect and also teaching me to listen. She is a very spiritual horse and has many lessons she is showing me. This beautiful song seemed to sum her up and her message to me about myself. About the part of me that has to show up when I am with her.
Beautiful music to dance a calm connected dance to.
Riding Noons Bridle less for the first time.
I will try to get a better film of this but it shows you can ride a horse in balance in any pace, in just an old halter.
Some fun with Noons
This is how connected Noo noo and I are.
Maya starting to choose to let me on her back, she has a choice.
Maya my young PRE who is being introduced to liberty and Connection.
Maya was very spooky when I first met her.
