 5***** SUMMIT REVIEWS

"Now I have confidence that it is actually ok to continue with the walking and bending until relaxation and connection is achieved"

Your steadfast quality of committing yourself to the basics of relaxation is wonderful.  No learning can happen when you are not connected to the horses brain. Now I have confidence that it is actually ok to continue with the walking and bending until relaxation and connection is achieved, thank you!

"If you want something to change, you have to change how you do things"

I can relate to everything Steve Halfpenny said in his session. My AHA moment is if you want something to change, you have to change how you do things, even if it's for a short period of time. Not new for me, but with Steve's insight, I get it even more. Thank you!

"We can have a great connection to our equine friends"

We love knowing that we can have a great connection to our equine friends and communicate with them without having to adhere to some sort of method. Each one of them is so unique and connect in different ways. By honoring them, they have allowed us to become part of their herd.  Kimber, USA. 

"I loved Lucie's session in the summit!"

"I loved Lucie's session in the summit! I used the tuning in piece with my horse. I also have worked some Masterson Method on other horses and it is just magic. Thank you for sharing what you know"

"No one day is the same as the next with our horses"

"Ozzie's session was very helpful to remind us to be patient, that no one day is the same as the next with our horses, or us at times, and to change the plan accordingly. I will certainly be taking that reminder on board"
