Story Stew for the Inquiring Rider

It’s challenging to describe the feeling you take home from a week-long Tellington Training so I was delighted with Kim Cox Carneal presented her unique take on the November training I taught at Skyhorse Ranch.

I enjoy a team process of teaching so I always have excellent co-teachers at my trainings. As usual I had a blast with the skillful assistance of TTEAM Practitioners Barbara Owens and Joyce Anderson. Both are very experience horsewomen and both have been involved with the Tellington Method for more than 20 years.

Barb breeds Icelandic Horses at her farm in Modesto and often assists my sister, Robyn Hood at the Canadian headquarters of Tellington TTouch Training where she and her husband, Phil Pretty have one of the largest breeding herds of Icelandic horses in Canada. Check out this magical breed at Ice Farm . Barb also teaches Peggy Cummings Connected Riding as well as Tellington TTouch Training.

Joyce Anderson lives in Virginia where she teaches Tellington workshops, does a lot of individual TTouch with horses and manufactures and sells Cloud Nine Saddle Pads. I have been using these pads, developed by Dr. Mathew Mackay-Smith, for more than 25 years. At the Paralympics in Atlanta these pads were responsible for allowing three riders to compete whose horses would have otherwise been eliminated because of sore backs. That’s a whole other story I must blog about one of these days.

But on to the stew.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. (more…)

From Slovenia With Love: All About A Special String of School Horses

from Slovenia

Back on the road again and finally having time to write here in my blog. I get so focused and busy when I’m home that it just doesn’t seem to happen!

It’s 5:30 AM here in Slovenia at the Kaja & Grom Ranch and it just seems natural to pick up the pen and start sharing our road experiences. Oops, I mean turn on my trusty computer named Spirit and let my fingers fly.

Welcome to my Journal!

It was almost two years ago that I was asked to write a blog for Swiss and American Horse magazines. I was unsure because there are so many blogs on this miraculous web we have woven around the world. I could not think of a good reason to add to the galaxies of information.

What did excite me was the realization that it would be a chance to highlight so many wonderful people who are making a difference in the world – who are Changing the World, One TTouch At A Time – often directly by teaching TTouch, and often bringing their own genius to the mix. There are also many others I have the privilege to meet and I would like to share these experiences.

One of the missions of Wisdom University is to support and develop “Cultural Creatives” – people who are dedicated to making a difference in the world.

This blog, which I prefer to think of as my journal, gives me the chance to honor the Cultural Creative Citizens who are a part of our TTouch family.

In addition I have the pleasure of sharing with you some of the highlights of my “Aha’s” as the magic of TTouch continues to unfold through sharing new developments in trainings for horses, companion animals and humans, as well as the feedback I receive from the miracle of the world wide web and stories from our travels as we flit from continent to continent.

Many years ago I was traveling in Florida with Susan Harding, (who was then publisher of Equus Magazine). We were visiting a premier dressage stable in White Fences, Florida. A rider whom I had never met told me how much she enjoyed reading our newsletter and could be an “arm chair traveler”, enjoying other parts of the world that were limited to her because of her stay-at-home commitment to her horses. Ever since I think of that comment as I share our stories.

I am a person who is most creative when brainstorming, working with others to make a difference in our world. It is thanks to the dedication and brilliance of Kim Cox Carneal, a TTouch Practitioner-in-training (horses) that this blog exists. She takes my journal and has created this backdrop for my musings.
Thank you Kim.

So here we go.
