The ONE thing you need to know about horsemanship

The ONE thing you need to know about horsemanship

Episode 63: The ONE key to horsemanship – do you know what it is? If you’re like many horse people, you’re always on the lookout for it. The secret tip, the ultimate hack, the one thing you MUST know. Social media marketing and sponsored ads are full of “the one thing” and the “amazing secret” that you can get by just clicking the link (and buying the advertised service).The trouble is that there are SO many of those “secret tips” – how do you know if you’re buying the right one?

I ‘m here to help. I’m going to share the ONE real key you need to know. Ready? There is NO one thing. There are no shortcuts or amazing hacks in horsemanship. You just have to take the time to study and practice horsemanship consistently. Not with big dramatic activities once a month or twice a year. But instead with small daily actions that steadily increase your knowledge and skill.

It’s called the compound effect. It’s how horses learn, people change and new patterns develop.The compound effect is the strategy of reaping huge rewards from small, seemingly insignificant actions. Small choices + consistency + time = significant results. Simple. Not easy. But always rewarding (in the long run).

How my horsemanship journey led to Horse Wise Scholars

How my horsemanship journey led to Horse Wise Scholars

Episode 61: I had a long and twisted horsemanship journey, starting as an adult beginner.  With time and good teachers (mostly horses), I eventually became a trainer and a coach. But I never forgot where I came from.  That’s why I started the Horse Wise  podcast -- to share my personal study of horsemanship. And to interview people who know more about it than me. The podcast now has listeners in all 50 states – AND 59 countries outside the US! People tell me all the time how much they enjoy the podcast. And they always want to know more. This got me thinking.

What if there was a way that people could ask follow-up questions to my guests -- and get mini-lessons on specific podcast topics? All organized in a simple format, easy to follow and keep up with.

I got so excited about this idea that I’m starting a new study circle! On June 1, 2021, I’ll be launching Horse Wise Scholars group, which will be a monthly subscription. It will include monthly horsemanship goal (based on podcast episode), along with weekly exercises, demos, private Q&A with podcast guests and more.

Ginger Gaffney: Teacher, trainer and bestselling author of Half Broke

Ginger Gaffney: Teacher, trainer and bestselling author of Half Broke

Episode 58: Ginger Gaffney is the trifecta of horsemanship. A renowned teacher and trainer, Ginger also is a highly successful author. Her debut memoir, Half Broke, details her experiences with an alternative prison ranch in New Mexico. The facility conducts a daring experiment: setting the troubled residents out to retrain an aggressive herd of horses. The horses and prisoners both arrive at the ranch broken in one way or many— the horses often abandoned and suspicious, the residents, some battling drug and alcohol addiction, emotionally, physically, and financially shattered. Ginger Gaffney’s job is to retrain the untrainable. With time, the horses and residents form a profound bond, and teach each other patience, control, and trust. Ginger’s book has received much critical praise and accolades — including selection as a NY Times Editors pick. Please check out her work (both literary and equine) at www.gingergaffney.com.

Brooke Tatrow on mindful horsemanship, Christmas poetry and the value of slowing down.

To me, Brooke Tatrow epitomizes the concept of integrity and balance in horsemanship. She has studied with classical and foundation horsemanship masters for over twenty years. Her teachers have included Buck Brannaman, Ray Hunt and Maryal Barnett. Brooke brings a thoughtful, compassionate and philosophical approach to every horse (and rider) she works with. Brooke is inspiring to learn from — and also is just super fun to talk horses with. Please check out Brooke’s work on Facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/mindfulhorsemanshipbt and her youtube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeRkQibAYL6Wo6jITrk_xvg/videos

Amy Skinner on the relationship between herd dynamics, horse handling and riding.

On this episode (#50), Amy Skinner returns for a fun and laughter-filled discussion on the relationship between herd dynamics, horse handling and riding. Also we ponder the nature of epiphanies and why they often deliver both the highs and lows simultaneously. .Amy offers a training program for all breeds and disciplines that focuses on promoting softness, balance, and relaxation.   Working with the horse’s mind develops confidence, and an understanding of biomechanics develops correct and sound movement.  She believes that learning should be fun and not intimidating, and she provides a safe, enjoyable atmosphere for riders to improve their abilities. As she says, “Training should never be so serious that we lose our sense of awe for the horse.” For more information on Amy and her work, please visit her FB page (https://www.facebook.com/AmySkinnerHorsemanship ), her website (https://amyskinnerhorsemanship.com/) and her book (https://amyskinnerhorsemanship.com/product/to-catch-a-horse/)

Kathleen Beckham: Does your horse do something because of you or despite you?

Kathleen Beckham: Does your horse do something because of you or despite you?

Renowned horsewoman Kathleen Beckham has spent decades in pursuit of horsemanship excellence. A lifelong student of the horse, Kathleen shares her knowledge via her blog, FB study group as well as ongoing lessons, clinics and coaching sessions. I’ve followed Kathleen for years on FB — and have found her blog posts to be incredibly helpful and insightful. What is remarkable about Kathleen is her dedication to personal growth and ongoing learning in her own work. As a talented young professional trainer, Kathleen’s world was upended by a debilitating stroke at age 28. Undeterred, Kathleen steadily climbed out of a long rehab and returned to her work in the horse world. Since then, she has continued to deepen her skills (and stretch herself beyond her comfort zone). From traveling clinician to riding for the public to developing colts into safe riding horses — and then writing about each step of her journey in wonderful detail — Kathleen truly is always thinking about horses.

Balance, trust and respect: Amy Skinner on mindful horsemanship, troubled horses and training integrity

Amy Skinner blends the principles of classical dressage and sound horsemanship practice. In her work, Amy keeps the best interest of horse and rider in mind, choosing to avoid fads and quick fixes, but to seek continual learning from the best teacher: the horse.Amy offers a training program for all breeds and disciplines that focuses on promoting softness, balance, and relaxation.  She believes that any horse can improve given enough time and understanding, and that force and dominance play no part in building a strong relationship.  Working with the horse’s mind develops confidence, and an understanding of biomechanics develops correct and sound movement.  She believes that learning should be fun and not intimidating, and she provides a safe, enjoyable atmosphere for riders to improve their abilities. As she says, “Training should never be so serious that we lose our sense of awe for the horse.” For more information on Amy and her work, please visit her FB page (https://www.facebook.com/AmySkinnerHorsemanship ), her website (https://amyskinnerhorsemanship.com/) and her book (https://amyskinnerhorsemanship.com/product/to-catch-a-horse/)

Feeling behind with your horse? Whatever you do, don’t try to catch up fast.

Feeling behind with your horse? Whatever you do, don’t try to catch up fast.

Many times, riders feel frustrated and behind schedule with their horse. It can be tempting to rush and try to catch up as fast as possible. But ironically this approach will have the opposite effect — and will create more setbacks. In this episode, I discuss why the hurry and catch up mentality works against both you and your horse. I also examine the classically negative (if unintentional) motivation behind this mindset— and how to ask yourself a key question to avoid this pitfall. The bottom line is that it isn’t about getting more things done with your horse (as fast as possible). Instead, it’s about how to get the right things done with your horse. The little things that help him become balanced, straight and supple —and that mean the most to the horse. Those are the things that we never “catch up” on — but instead are the focus of each ride, slowly and steadily building a consistency and compound effect over time.

My favorite way to coach at Horse Wise

My favorite way to coach at Horse Wise

No one will be surprised to learn that my favorite way to coach involves talking. I’m known for my colorful teaching style — lots of vivid metaphors, humorous stories and (of course) laughter. My regular clients will recognize serious curriculum concepts like “giant stripper boobs” and “50 lbs of queso in your pockets.” While I’m not exactly the Spanish Riding School in terms of presentation, I love to coach — and my favorite way to do is through audio coaching. In this episode, I describe what’s unique about my customized audio coaching services (besides references to strippers and queso). I also include a real audio coaching segment I did for a special client and her horse. Best of all, I include a super fun offer to my listeners to email me any issues with their horses or horsemanship that they would like assistance with. I will be selecting one or two each week — and will do a customized audio coaching segment for them on the podcast! My email is horsewisecoach@icloud.com 1

Linda Hoover on the relationship between equine biomechanics, mail order brides and ballet barre exercises.

“Horse trainers train horses. Horsemen work on themselves.” -Tom Dorrance

Linda’s work speaks to the foundation and refinement of skills that allows ANY horse, regardless of discipline, to be a more willing and prepared partner. For her, the art of horsemanship is a personal journey to discover the grace, harmony and partnership that can exist between horse and rider. Linda has been teaching and training professionally since 1980. She has helped horses and riders in nearly every discipline — from stock horse to dressage to cutting horse to eventing. Linda has worked with many “Masters” of the art of horsemanship, including Buck Brannaman, Tom Curtin and Ray Hunt. In 2008, she attended the first of many symposiums taught by Dr. Gerd Heuschmann, world renowned expert of equine biomechanics and the author of Tug of Way - Classical versus “Modern” Dressage. In addition, Linda has received certification through the Western Dressage Association of America (WDAA) Train the Trainers Program.
