3.6. What Is A Horseman?

The term ‘Horseman’ these days has been bandied about so much that it seems to have lost much of its true meaning. Many horse owners, when asked if they would like to be a horseman, answer in the affirmative and yet are hard pressed to explain exactly what one is.

2.21. Natural Principles

What is Green? Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘green on green makes black and blue’? The term ‘green’ by description, suggests growth or growing, in other words something still under construction and not yet finished. In horsemanship terms ‘ green’ can refer to horse or human and while it has a similar meaning it also has two very different time frames.

3.17. Muscle Memory

Everyday we perform certain actions repeatedly, until they become second nature or involuntary to us. Actions like walking, picking things up, using a knife, fork or tooth brush become everyday habits that we take for granted. However, that was not always so.

2.32. Keep It Natural - Horse Care

Horses have survived and thrived on this planet, evolving for millions of years, proving that not only do they have vastly developed survival instincts but also that they are a highly evolved species in terms of breeding, socialising, conditioning and environmentally.

3.29. Natural Principles. In The End Is The Beginning

By now, at the very end of Level 3, you are probably feeling that you are finally getting a handle of Level 1. And of course, you are right. Often, it’s only when we have seen the whole picture and process that we really understand the beginning and where it all commenced.

3.7. Advancing Liberty & Bareback And Bridleless

At this point in the QS programme, in Level 3, we take our first bareback and bridle-less ride and get an even closer accord with our horses through advancing our liberty skills.

2.22. Natural Principles. Natural Abilities - The Right Horse For The Job!

When setting out with a particular sport or discipline in mind, it’s important to consider what type of horse will best suit your needs. As horse lovers, it seems a pretty easy thing to find horses we like. However, just liking them when they are standing in the paddock may not be enough, or indeed fair on the horse when you have a specific goal in mind.

A few important points to consider, to ensure a good match may be;
• personality – do you like each other?
• experience – does the horse suit your level of experience?

3.18. Respect Gives Impulsion Gives Flexion

Already throughout the Quantum Savvy programme and previous articles, you will have noticed familiar patterns and building blocks; programmes and patterns that evolve and progress through each Level. Variations upon the same familiar themes.

2.33. Responsibilities – What We Need To Become

By now you are probably discovering that to achieve success with horses, it is as much a journey about yourself as it is with them. Sometimes more so!

Traditionally it has been a pretty easy thing to do, to blame the darn horse when he doesn’t do what we want. Understanding horses the way that we now do, we know that they will only do as we ask and their personality, behaviour and responses are all a direct reflection of us.

3.30. Rhythm In Lateral Movement

If you think about impulsion and flexion and what it takes in order for a horse to be able to move freely and fluidly in all directions, you will soon see the obvious signs of natural flexion and therefore elevation.

For a horse to truly get his feet underneath him, particularly in sideways and backward manoeuvres, he needs to lift his body up, hence flexing vertically to some degree through the whole body. Try it yourself. Get down on the floor on all fours and try lifting your back up as high as you can. Note what happens to your shoulders, neck and head.
