Introduction to Straightness Training and demo lessons at Welland - huge success!
The Introduction to ST and demonstration at Welland this morning was a huge success! What a wonderfully positive and friendly atmosphere, with a super audience, so open and ready to learn. Huge thanks to the awesome Jo Lewington and Sam Pettigrew who were superb hosts, and Jo’s demo lessons with Des and Sherman were both inspiring and informative for the audience. Sam’s lemon drizzle was second to none!
And the icing on the cake was Lisa Hudson’s very first lesson with her lovely young gelding Colin, a very interesting lesson that I really enjoyed, which demonstrated how to get started with a new horse. We learned that every horse is different and if it’s not working then we should change our approach and break down what we are asking into smaller chunks. Colin learned so quickly when we took our time and allowed him to process what we were asking using Release, Reward, Relax, (or Redirect) and Repeat. And Lisa already has very good timing and feel and I’m sure they will be super successful with ST in future.
Now we are looking forward to our special lesson days on Sunday 25 September and Saturday 22 October, there are lesson places available if you contact me direct.
