“Alright you dad-gum varmint. Draw!”
I can’t tell you how amazing it is when we bring a horse and rider into the middle of what Mark has to offer and a little bit of what I have to share. Listen to what the rider has to say, see what the horse has to say, then mix it up with some bodywork and the results are amazing. Mark and I have talked about how much we both learn at these things. When it’s shared with the horse, the rider, and the auditors it’s pretty powerful stuff.
They do a lot of good work at the Happy Dog both with horses and humans, plus it’s a nice place to stay. I noticed every morning from my porch, when they let the horses out to pasture, the same thing would happen with a tiny little grey burro and his buddy, a big ole’ painted gypsy vanner. The big paint would amble out. The donkey would lag way behind, stop to roll, then take off bucking to catch up with his buddy. I guess this routine provided him a little drama in his life.
Anyways, it went well again and we’ll be doing it some more, so keep an eye on the newsletter and our Course Calendar.
One more short trip to California in a week then I’ll have almost a whole month at home. Should give me time to catch up. I’m looking forward to reading this newsletter so I can see what’s going on myself.
Will also give me time to prepare for the annual fall trip to England and winter trip to Australia. While there I’ll be at the Equitana horse expo in Melbourne and also, for the first time, teaching a Weekend Seminar at Steve Halfpenny’s Silversand Horsemanship Centre in Blanchetown, South Australia.
Please take time to read about our new Masterson Method Certified Practitioners, and also to see what’s new with our Equine Specialist Program. (There will be a test : )
In lieu of more exciting news I’ll leave you with a couple of exciting photos of our little homestead here in Iowa:
“Homestead on a sunny day.”
“Homestead on a stormy day.”
Also have a gander here at Babalooey and his Gypsy buddy on their morning routine:
