Join us and gain new insight about what's really going on inside your partnership in terms of the ultimate measure: the Feel between you and your horse. 

What's in your Feel defines your partnership.

Why? Because Feel is the main thing your horse has to go on - it's how he's "wired". Your Feel is the direct line to your horse, when it's aligned with who You are and applied with clarity that fits Your Horse.

Inside Your PartnershipFind out how common practices could be tripping you up and which of 4 aspects of Feel is your particular key to "closing the gap" for you and your horse.

Pressure

Does your sensitive or 'lazy' horse respond well to pressure? Are you a good 'Alpha' leader?

Are you 100% comfortable about "escalating pressure" to get what you want from your horse?

Are you an "Alpha" leader, at heart?

I wasn't either. Because you know deep down Your Horse doesn't exactly like that 'discomfort' from you!

If you have a nagging feeling there is "more" in your horse you can't seem to quite reach... you're right!

The downside of "Alpha" strategies is that the Feel we offer (such as driving our horse away on the ground or escalating discomfort until he 'submits' to our lead) is really one of “separation” instead of a Feel of “unity”.

This  creates “static" on the line between you and your horse, interfering with clear, harmonic flow.

Higher Capacity for Partnership

Your Horse is waiting for More...You! Join us to find out how Feel really works:

Whether you are enjoying a trail ride, working in an arena, handling a dicey moment or resolving well-rooted trouble-spots, Feel is the bridge from strife to a forever journey of deeper access to your horse.  

When your creativity meets your horse's creativity in connection with the same plan, you discover you and your horse's higher capacity for true partnership in all that you do together.

When I started coaching clinic students "The 4 Keys to Harmonic Flow" and framework of principles within each key, it became their roadmap and GPS to a higher level of connection with their horses. Now it’s here on-line - for you and your horse! Join us to discover how Feel really works and how to apply it with clarity.

Yin Yang Model of Horsemanship

Which Stealth Saboteurs are undermining Your partnership? (here's what to do about it)

To find out what Feel is really about, there's a collection of common practices that are notorious for undermining your feel and therefore your connection, often without you knowing it: I call them the Stealth Saboteurs.

Follow my self-guided assessment “Inside Your Partnership: The Stealth Saboteurs” to identify your Stealth Saboteurs within each of The 4 Keys that determine Feel.

Find out which Key will help you the most personally to unlock more in your horse and deepen your partnership.

More on What to Expect from Karen:

Karen Musson is known for her warm, light-hearted way of coaching horsemen/women in the refinement of feel. She guides you to expand on the idea of an intermittent, conditonal feel of release to an ongoing feel of release that develops an open flow in your connection. Karen will show you the direct line to an ease and depth of connection you know exists... yet which might seem to come and go at times, feel fleeting or be right at your finger tips then sometimes escape your grasp. "Feel" is not exclusive or reserved for the advanced or masterful rider - it is universal. It is also the art of not tripping ourselves up as a result of a collection of common practices that unwittingly get in our way. All it really takes is gaining the awareness that fuels taking our horsemanship a little deeper in understanding of "the inner workings" of a prey animal - so we can shift from a dominant approach that promotes brace first, followed by submission, to leading from the "the higher road" of connection first to bring an offer of mind, engine and feet more readily to the hand, in unity.

"Feel is the direct line to the whole horse: refining your feel takes the connection you have with your horse to new heights. Enjoy!"

 
"FEEL, TIMING and BALANCE: Sometimes it's best to talk about feel, timing and balance separately, and to learn how to apply each thing separately on the start. But when you go to apply these three things a little later on in your training, then you see that each of these things supports the other. They are interconnected and all three are important. If one is missing, there's sure to be a poor effect on the other two. The main one you need to have in there when you ride is balance. Without that you'd fall off your horse just as soon as you got up on him"

Join Karen as she guides you through how to Refine Your Feel.  

Follow Karen's step-by-step approach to set the course for a thoroughly uplifting true connection that is both real and one you can rely on to reach your horse when things aren't so smooth.

Events offer a low-key, friendly, fun, inspirational and often deeply touching experience, while exploring in depth such topics as:

1. What is “feel” anyway? Isn’t it what we do naturally? Don’t I already use “feel”?

2. The common thread to every challenge - whether a minor ‘moment’ between you and your horse, a slight inconsistency that is on your mind or the immense frustration of hard work yielding slow progress, or perhaps an unsettling ‘trigger’ that lurks in a horse or rider, rooted in a fall, bad experience or is just a mystery. 

3. The one thing that will ALWAYS release your horse’s mind to you, and how to do it.

4. How and why does our "clear intent" and its associated Feel play a defining role in the connection between you and your horse? 

5. Refine Your Feel - as in, how do *you* do this with *your* horse? 

Whether you want to "just" find your flow out on the trail, bust open the door to master your real competitive potential
or simply refine your feel in a great connection you already enjoy, we invite you to Come Ride!
