EP194: Enrichment With Mary Richards

EP194: Enrichment With Mary Richards

In this episode I am joined by Mary Richards to talk about enrichment which is basically about how to keep our horses in a way that allows them to be the happiest horses they can be. I think you’ll really love this conversation where we’ll learn how even small changes can make a big difference. You’ll learn about Social, Cognitive, Sensory, & Physical Enrichment.

EP193: Best of HTIH: Complicating Half Halts

Complicating Half Halts

This episode re-introduces a popular episode from the archives about the famous (infamous) half halt. The half halt is an important concept in dressage – AND it’s a term I actually rarely use. I get a lot of questions about it, and anyone who has studied dressage or has taken dressage lessons has been asked to do a half halt. If you’ve ever been confused about what a half halt is or how to do it keep on listening to this original episode on half halts.

EP192: Best of HTIH: Noticing

EP192: Best of HTIH: Noticing

This episode is a re-introduction of a favorite episode of mine that goes more into our own minds rather than just horse training techniques, but I promise, what is in this episode will be a HUGE help to your horsemanship. It talks about what we notice, how our neurology works against us noticing everything we can notice, and it will give ideas for how to notice more of what we need to notice in order to improve. I love thinking about this kind of stuff, and I hope you enjoy listening to this replay of episode 104: Noticing.

Leaf in Atomic’s mane. 
Looks a bit like an upside down heart.
Maybe because I am sad he’s injured but I am loving the extra time we are spending together just being. 
Together.
