Hi, been watching this forum for some time and finally got around to registering! I have to say I am blown away by you guys and feel so motivated to do so much with my horses, I was studying Parelli but found I didnt agree with the level of force involved - my hero is Alexanda Nevzorov, also Caroline Resnick and Klaus Hempfling.

I have 4 horses Frenchie, a TB ex racer, Bron is on loan from ILPH also TB, Rhea Welsh section D and her baby Rose- Marie.
I have been searching, proberbly most of my life for ways to be with my horses which doesnt involve any kind of force and is based on mutual respect and free choice and am now feeling as if that is possible due to above mentioned people and now this wonderful forum, so feeling really excited!!!!!

Apart from Rose Marie, my other 3 friends have been really traumatised in their previous lives as competition horses and basically when they came to me had just had enough of the life they found themselves in so for me there has been a lot of challenges but I really feel that now we are all ready to try something new and fun.

I have started chasing the Tiger with Rosey and she loves it - cant get enough of it maybe because shes only 3 and still very playful. Forgot to say Im from Shropshire in England, not far from the Welsh border so yes I know all about wet Wales!

Ive got so many Q but will keep them for another time. Im so excited to know that there are others out there who think like me and even better are proving that force isnt needed.
Well - just wanted to say hello :smile:

Hi Roa and welcome to the forum.

I am based in Herefordshire, near to the Powys border so I guess quite local to youself :green:

Your horses sound lovely and I admire anyone who takes on "rescues". This is an area I work very closely in so will look forward to hearing more about you and your horses.

I have only recently taken the AND plunge and the support and advice from this forum is fantastic, I just cannot get enough of it.

I am sure you will enjoy it here and the AND experience as much as myself and my horses are :cheers:

Hello, Roa. Welcome here.

:funny: We all have lots of questions all the time, and we all have different answers, too. There are huge amounts of information in the different topics and in the diaries. I haven't read it all yet ...

I second Annette (Morgan) - pictures of your gang, please. :D

Welcome Roa! :)

I drove by Shropshire a few weeks ago, on my way to Stratford-upon-Avon..:P

Do post pictures indeed, I love seeing other people's horses, haha. How old are the other horses you have?
And do ask the questions you have..sometimes a simple question can be very refreshing or interesting, even when you think it's not. :)
