Horseman Mastery Programs

Are you serious about Mastery?

Are you one of the select individuals who have the drive & commitment to become certified? Would you like to learn what can't be found anywhere else? To learn the root cause of all unwanted behaviour, how to fix problems permanently & how to prevent them all together? My goal is to create a core group family of practitioners who will help teach Emotional Balancing & the art of true oneness with horses

"Mastery is not found in ideals of conquering the horse, but in 

conquering our ideas of the horse"

Tips for Practitioners

1. Come with an open mind & leave everything you know at the gate because you need ample space to learn something brand new

2. You are the only person responsible for your attitude, success & failure; take responsibility for your thoughts, words & actions

3. Be prepared to learn a lot, work hard & open yourself to both praise & constructive criticism

4. Maintain a positive & professional attitude at all times

5. Be on your best safety-oriented behaviour at all times- you will be evaluated on your safety & basic comprehension, not perfection

6. Do not try to prove anything you think you know to instructors or to out-do the other participants - you will have ample opportunity to demonstrate your proficiency during the process & this is a cooperative team environment

7. Accept that you will be working with people & possibly horses that are unknown to you & will become part of our family after certification

8. Do not succumb to the temptation of blaming your inadequacies on the horses or comparing your performance to another participants; this is considered unprofessional

9. Do not get involved in someone else's drama - stay focused on your own process & do not allow yourself to be distracted

10. Remember that you will also be evaluated on your professionalism, patience & ability to remain calm, relaxed & non-judgemental

11. Dress appropriately - this is not a fashion show & casual horse-related attire is expected

12. Be honest & kind - say what needs to be said but in a supportive way. Always include a positive comment in your evaluations

13. Be concise & do not ramble in your evaluations - Don't feed the story; we are here to move forward

14. Work with the horses the way you normally would at home to help yourself avoid problems later & get the most from our time together

15. Be creative & have fun with your horses & other people; we're here to change the current paradigm of how we work with horses

16. You're here to achieve the highest level of experience & understanding possible - ask a million questions & remember, there are no stupid questions

17. Ask your questions of the instructors & not other participants, to avoid misinformation & confusion
