We are very excited to be hosting Jamie Evans’s Colt Start / Horse Development programme for a second year running.
Jamie has developed the ISP to run alongside a 4 week Colt Start / Horse Development intake. He will be starting young horses the Parelli way & also working with older horses to either "re-start" them naturally or work through issues & behaviours the owners find challenging.
So the ISP students will have the daily opportunity to audit / take part / work with & care for these horses as they go through huge changes & learn to cope in humansville!
As well as this there will be daily horsemanship lessons for students with their own horses which will include some classroom theory, plenty of hands-on horse care (barefoot trimming / grooming / massage & nutrition) and of course lessons in the 1st 3 savvys ( on-line, liberty & freestyle). PLUS unlimited trail riding over the breathtaking Welsh hills, which are on the doorstep.
The students will each be assigned up to 2 horses to care for including their own & will need to muck out, groom, feed & warm them up if nescessary depending on each horse & student's ability.
During the last week, the owners will return & be given lessons with their horses which the students can audit & assist at. These sessions are fascinating & heartwarming as wonderful new relationships are forming which the students have been part of from the beginning.
This course is a great confidence booster & a way to recognise your strengths & weaknesses, learn how to draw from them & progress. Jamie will be living on-site & always available to answer questions & help with horsemanship but there is also ample opportunity to spend time working it out for yourself in a safe environment with help close by, which makes this course fantastic for developing an independence in your horsemanship for when we all have to go home & do it by ourselves! (If you need to be told what to do every minute of the day then this is not the course for you!!)
It is hoped that Jamie will be joined by his wife, Mattie Cowherd-Evans, also a highly talented 3* Parelli Instructor & Horse development Specialist for at least one of the ISP Blocks. She is currently working for Attwood Ranch in California as their head young horse developer so it will depend on her work schedule whether she can travel to the UK.
There is also going to be a "Horsenality Clinic" taking place just before the ISP (27th – 30th March), which the students are welcome to come early & book onto or audit, & also a "Trailriding Clinic" at the end (27th-29th April).
SO, if you would like to be more confident & experienced around a variety of different horses / horsenalities, would like to improve your horsemanship with your own horse, would like to be more independent & progressive and enjoy an 8am-8pm day (or until it's too dark to see your horse) then sign up NOW as we have a lot more applicants than places available!
