The Advanced 5-day Course in Iowa was not only fun, it was an awe inspiring experience and went by too fast. Along with great camaraderie with everyone in the class, we were gifted with the gracious hospitality of Conley and Jim. Jim’s methodology of “Search, Response, Stay, Release” elicits profound and immediate responses from the horse. Stefani Reinhold, Jim’s assistant, supported us every step of the way with her gentle, positive presence. Every barn we traveled to offered a different experience…from Morgans to Percherons, Race horses to Hackney Ponies and horses in rehab for behavioral problems. I have returned home with the tools necessary to follow my dream of working with horses and their humans. I am ever so grateful.
