Just back from 4 back-to-back courses (Feeding/Athlete; Psychology, Foundation & Untouched). Life-changing and simply brilliant! In lieu of competing this summer, will be doing my Psychology project and doing my join ups. Every horse person says “we never stop learning” but sometimes that is just lip service. One of the (so many) things I learnt at my stays in Witney from great ‘teachers’ is to admit that and how to open myself up to really learning.
Part of that is the effectiveness and ‘intelligence’ of the content. The other part has been the skill and empathy of the trainers and the environment that enables, encourages, supports and celebrates individual breakthroughs. Probably the most positive and useful 11 days in my entire equestrian life!!!
