Kind words about Angie and John
I learnt so much at John’s clinic on the weekend & most importantly how much more I really need to put into my groundwork to get to where I want to be with my horse.I really loved the way John tailored each individual session according to each horse & rider combination. There are many clinicians that can be a wealth of knowledge in their chosen discipline but very few can explain all the concepts and exercises to such a broad spectrum of riders, including children & have each & every single rider understand. John was beyond fantastic & every person took something away with them.
My horse Doc and I were struggling to make a connection after a year of other training methods. I didn’t know how to work through his aggressive and quite dangerous behaviours before I attended your groundwork clinic. I was actually at a point where I felt I may need to move him onto another more experienced horse person. In my job I work very closely with youth who have suffered complex trauma and was very saddened to know I was not able to recognise this in my horse Doc, who Angie was able to diagnose and then over the clinic help me understand and work with all his complex behaviours in such a compassionate way. Doc was an orphan foal and had some very strange behaviours resulting in what can only now be described as trauma based behaviour. After Angie’s clinic he is so much calmer and now actually wants to be with me because I have changed how I interact with him. I can also see him standing relaxed in the paddock which he didn’t really do before. I am truly grateful for what you taught me Angie, not to mention Doc is the happiest hehas ever been after your clinic. I really wanted to express my gratitude from the bottom of my heart.
What I learnt over the weekend at John’s clinic has been incredible and given me much more to work on with my horse, we can only go forward from here. John was easy to understand and was very encouraging with every rider.
I attended John’s clinic on the weekend and he was an outstanding clinician. His clear and kind way, in particular with the horses was fantastic. I learnt more about Reining off John in the last 2 days than I ever have before. I can’t wait for the next clinic!
there. I think this quote sums things up for Angie’s teaching these last fewdays. “They may forget what you said, but they will not forget how you made them feel”. This goes for both the rider and the horse.
I cannot believe how much I got out of John’s clinic on the weekend. It was fantastic! He was patient, had great communication skills and explained all the concepts very clearly. I am very much looking forward to the next clinic.
I thought John’s clinic was fantastic as usual. I really love the way John has the ability to teach individually whilst being in a group environment. His knowledge was tailored to each specific horse and rider combination for the level they were at. It was very noticeable how much each & every horse and rider improved over the two days.
