When I was still a Parelli Natural Horsemanship Instructor I started to realize that - while achieving great results in the beginning - myself and my students reached a plateau in the relationship with our horses started in Level 3 and 4.
After resigning as an instructor in 2013, I created the "WholeHearted Communication Manual" with the 4 Stumbling Blocks and 16 Solutions.
But I wanted to delve even deeper...
So I decided to search for that next level of horsemanship that I wanted to achieve. I attended several classes with well known instructors - and most of the time I walked away with a resolution what NOT to do!
Many trainers and instructors will tell you they teach Connection, but it is a form of connection that is either coerced and/or created by patterns and not by choice and free will.
Just look into the horse's eyes, and you will know!
I eventually found 3 exceptional trainers that I wanted to add to my list of mentors, Frédéric Pignon, Magali Delgado and Ingela Larsson Smith.
With 30+ years of horse-friendly training experience I added another level of deeper understanding to my repertoire. I adjusted small details on how I approached my HorseManShip (as well as my EveryDayLife) and the results for myself and my students were astounding.
