The Leading Exercise

3 comments

Just wanted to share an experience from a recent horsemanship club gathering. Had a group of new horse folks and new horses working who needed to get some round pen skills tightened up (like we all do from time to time). Since I was the poor monkey who volunteered to lead this experience I asked everyone to lead there horses from the trailers to the round pen. It was illuminating to say the least. Lots of pushy horses and horses that didn't have a lot of awareness of their human. So the Leading Exercise was experienced by the group! Certainly made a difference in the focus and attitude of the horses and the humans! Got a note a few days later from one of the new folks thanking me for sharing Scott's approach to the Leading Exercise. It made a real difference to her and her horse. That makes a soul feel good.

 

Over all the round pen session was fun and educational. Good times!

 

Thanks for sharing these exercises with us Scott and Grace!

 

Have a great week!

That's awesome! Thanks for sharing!!! I'm not sure what happened with the Facebook group why you weren't added but we made sure to correct that! If you have time you should share this with that group! You can just copy and paste. Thanks again!!!!

Certainly will!

It always amazes me to see these "transformations"which to the uninitiated appear almost "magical" because they seem to happen "so quickly" (that is a quote). What makes the journey fun is that the horse thrives within the structure of fair leadership and its (his/her) potential really begins to shine.

Thanks again for ALL that you do!

    I was one of the lucky riders to ride with Scott at the Midwest Horse Fair this year, and would love to meet up with any other Wisconsin club members. I have had such a good summer implementing the skills Scott introduced me to this spring. The relationship with my horse is better and I have found a little more confidence in my riding too. Thanks Scott!

    We are getting a little group together for a "spur of the moment ride" at Ed Hughes Memorial Arena located at 600 S. church Street in Ione, CA this Saturday September 8, 2018 at 11:00 AM. Day use fee is $10.00. We'll be doing groundwork first and then riding in and out of the area. Expect LOTS of Advantage Horsemanship program exercises. This is a great opportunity to meet other Leadership Club folks and work with our horses together. Hope you can make it! Cheers! Michael
