Super! I wish I had been there!

Are your demo-people and horses here on the forum too? Because it sounds like they really did a wonderful job!

No, they are not at all.
Laura was at my reading at Equstyle in 2007 and decided then and there that this was what she and her horse needed.
Her horse did not like her anymore and threw her off almost every week.
He had never been ridden without side reins and bit!
But she trusted her mentor.

After the reading she mailed me, ordered a bitless bridle and I mailed a lot with her. She found a different place for her horse where he could be free at last and started AND, guided through mail and phone calls. As she lives almost two hours away and I advised her not to ride for 3 months until she and her Ramazotti started their relationship a new she invited me for a lesson and she wanted to be in the demo.
Just with one lesson ( she rode him then for the first time again) the transformation was amazing.
And all things started to make sense to her.

Yoke and Johan I found through Natasja from Barefoot.
She said: I have got exactly the person you are looking for who rides exactly AND style.
Ralph went out to visit her and her husband and watched them riding and it was marvellous... I'll never forget this till the day that I die!

This hot headed alpha mare, just walking loose on this large stable with all those horses restraind and bitted ha ha !
They sort of ignored them, because what they saw in their minds simply is not possible.

Yoke rides all the excersizes to M level and I think in about a year she will be ready for piaffe etc...
with cordeo!

There are truely a lot of people out there who have not found the AND website, but who have found AND!

by the way, most of my pupils are not on this forum, they read and look at he groudwork but do not enlist.
Perhaps they do not need it?
I shall ask them :)

Eh... well, simple actually: an arena and enough horses and people who want to take lessons and with that sponsor my trip over to you. :) 8)

I am receiving emails from all over the country from people who want to have lessons or a trainingsweek over at Equihof so Ralph and I are going to see if we can make that possible. :) wow!
We already have room for people, now some room for horses :)

It is so great that people are saying that this is exactly what they were looking for!
It takes all the tireness away! :) :)

wow Glen, you're really getting me all excited here ha ha !
And I was already excited about invitations in all of Belgium today ha ha !

I have no idea at this point to be quite frank.
First tell me where I would need to fly to exactly.
And then will I be picked up at the airport?
Do I need to stay in a hotel or can I crash with you?
Do we need to rent an arena etc.

When we get a view of the total costs, then we can see how many people we would need to get a clinic price per person that is worth everyone's while.
I think if I come over all that way, maybe we should plan 2 or 3 days of lessons.
After that one can really continue on his own with AND riding :)

I am soooo booked untill October anyway... so if you really want this then I am sure we can find a way.
I know Ralph always wanted to come to South Africa so no worries there, he is in :)

Ralph can check out the horses hoofs if anyone is interested and we can bring suitcases full of baroque bitless bridles and cordeos and of course some herbal products of your choice :)

Very excited Josepha :lol:

YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!

You will need to fly to "Richards Bay" (45 minutes drive to my place) if possible, or "Durban" (2.5 hours drive to my place) if not. Probably land in Johannesburg or Cape Town and then use a connecting flight.

I will pick you up at the airport - with or without a 2-berth horse-box! :lol:

Of course you'll stay with me, SILLY! :roll:

Arena available at "my" stable-yard, or I will make other arrangements if neccessary. I doubt there will be a problem.

Oh, and I've got more cars than I can drive, so you'll be able to "do your own thing" if you wish!

:shock: ONLY 2 or 3 days? NO! I need/want more than that by myself! :lol:

October's good - tomorrow's better! :P

The weather is too hot from about mid-December to mid-March, so avoid that (or you will have to do it the Spanish way and "siesta" from 10h00 to at least 15h00!)

Yay! Hoofs too! You go, Ralph! Or should I say come?

AND Tack! Lovely! What else?

Oh, yes. I nearly forgot - I hope you like dogs because I've got 4 or 6 - depends on whether or not you count the 2 youngsters who "visit" their parents!
