Marshall Stage 1: "I
found your course excellent. The amount of information and the
way that you are able to allow me to retain that information,
I found impressive. I found the instructor committed to students
and how to enjoy their horses without danger and to keep danger
to a minimum. I have found that when some humans are asked to
consume that much they suffer from information overload. Their
brain seems to protect themselves by shutting down to a certain
extent. This makes being an educator extremely difficult. It
was an excellent course. Keep it up!!"
Woodhouse Stage 1: "I felt the course flowed really
well and the pace just right. The practical work was awesome.
Your demonstrations, your explanations all helped me succeed.
spot by the caravan is a lovely spot for the group to come together
but is a peaceful place to reflect and think about what has
happened. I really appreciated the folder. For me having copies
of the articles that are relevant from Impulsion Magazine would
really help me to keep focused on the important principles.
You and Max have developed a fantastic facility. It was a wonderful
experience to be able to use them."
Hill Stage 1: "I have furthered my understanding of
humility and the art and experience of teaching."
Woodhouse Stage 2: "Jane Well done, you delivered a
magnificent course where you gave enough information and encouragement
to be able to achieve the activity set to a high level. I feel
that I can go away and be reasonably competent at incorporating
the activities into the ponies learning programme. I have left
this course feeling really positive and enthused. I really enjoyed
the company of the other participants they were a fantastic
bunch. The house was always lovely and warm. It was such a neat,
learning environment, the large dining room where we could all
socialise and the training room was very comfortable. Thank
Haley Stage 2: "Once again a wonderfully enjoyable
course from which I personally gained. It put all the elements
of course 1 and more into perspective. Being able to work with
my own horse was extremely helpful in that it enabled me to
judge, with supervision and advice, as to how much pressure
to put on. I think other wise I would have tended to be too
Marshall Stage 2: "For
the horse for his peace of mind, his wellbeing and for his education,
we must look at ourselves. Are we consistent with our requests
and do we recognise when the requests have been answered? Are
we being fair before we use force? Are we allowing the horse
to learn if not we confuse the horse?
stage 2 an extension of stage 1. The stage renewed stage 1 and
then progressed to the next step. I was impressed that the course
was geared to individual requirements, but the group was treated
as a whole. The explanation of the work involved with the colt
I found excellent. The techniques employed to correct the spooking
horse invaluable. The realization that leadership skills are
essential to the safe management of the horse by humans is one
of the major factors in the education and well being of the
horse. Watching the course facilitator and then the horse progress
during the course, to become more responsive and to become a
calmer partnership was very pleasing. My equine knowledge took
another long step forward.
stage 2: "The main thing that I learned from stage
2 was the importance of reinforcement and maintaining the full
attention of the horse. The fact that the horse has to fully
understand what you want from it is essential before you can
teach it the next step. The handler must have leadership for
him to feel secure in any situation."
Clayton Stage 2: "At last a training course that makes
sense! Jane's ability to get the message across is awesome.
The most wonderful thing is that the answers to the questions
come from the students themselves. The depth of understanding
that has occurred for me at this level has made stage 1 even
