While looking into more resources that will help the 3 of us work more correctly on balance & self carriage through our liberty games I found, what is looking like a lovely on line course by Bent Branderup
(for German speaking pupils) it seems lovely (but I cant understand a single word in German â€“ so will have to wait for an Eng. Version) maybe someone else can be helped by this: itâ€™s a basic ground-work / in-hand course (although traditional classic / academic dressage â€“ but, as I see it, you can always take out what is relevant for you)http://www.la-selle.com/modules/wsConte ... 4&page=164
Instead I got myself a new book (â€œhorse training in handâ€ by Ellen Schuthof-Lesmeister and Kip Mistraland
) and then signed up for another on-line course â€“ in english, (a more theoretical one), â€œstraightness trainingâ€ by
a student of Bent Branderup, Marijke de Jong
. Both book and course are again, a traditional horse training approaches (though quite a gentle one).
The book is nice but only a small portion of it is rally relevant for what I was looking for (which is still great, I love collecting horse books broadening the mind and adding to the whole picture that transform and evolves into my own mixture of life with the horses (even if in my eyes itâ€™s an unwanted approach â€“ It makes me a bit more knowledgeable and clear about my own thoughts and intentions). the book gives a nice demonstration in photos and illustration of the horse and handler positioning, troubleshooting etcâ€¦http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Training-Ha ... 1570764093
About Marijke de Jongâ€™s course - i have looked at some of the materials and I feel noting is really new to me, (and as a training concepts looks sometimes somewhat like what Josefaâ€™s 5 steps plan), but it has a clear theoretical and anatomical structured explanations shown in short movies (20) and written in accompanied texts (e-books), that describes a range of the natural asymmetries of horses and the appropriate exercises to help with. http://straightness-training.kajabi.com ... pages/2225
I often feel so alone â€œin a real desertâ€ here, so the books, videos and the Internet are my main learning resources (then experimenting and listening to the horses), so i wanted to share â€“ if there is anybody else out there, at the same place.
