A show for and with Horses and their people
"I just bought a horse! Now what?"
In this episode we are joined by Brigid Neylan Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider Certified Facilitator and Simone Padur, one of favourite guest-hosts, who have both just recently bought new horses!
What is possible for creating a joyful relationship with your new horse? What are the possibilities that you might not have considered?
Contributing to Horse Bodies
You may have noticed that we love having quite different kinds of conversations at "Horses Talk, We Listen" - one that is based on possibilities and not problems!
One area that can be perceived as very problematic is horse bodies - in many cases an injury can be considered a life or death choice for a horse... but what if there is a different possibility for and with the bodies of these beautiful animals?
In this episode, we have a special guest, Dr. Andrew Gardella, a chiropractor and Access Consciousness Certified Facilitator who has been working on horse (and people and other animal) bodies for a number of years. He is a facilitator of ESSE - Energetic Synthesis of Structural Embodiment, and will be joining us to talk about about different possibilities with horse bodies that go beyond the mainstream.
What Can Horses Teach Us About Intimacy?
Gary Douglas, the found of Access Consciousness (the tools used Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider Clinics) said, "Everything I know, I learned from my horse."
Today, Beth Schliebe, co-creator of Arizona Horse Magick and Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider Facilitator, is coming onto the show to about Intimacy (one of her favourite topics!) - and the 5 elements that horses BE that invites us to a greater sense of peace, ease and joy with ourselves, others and with the entire planet. What are these 5 elements? Guess you will just have to come onto the show to find out
"At age 25, I got my first horse (Sajun - a 16.5 hands high giant quaterback stead) while living in Steamboat Springs Colorado. We were best buddies and rode daily through the mountains, dirt roads, the forest, and the meadows in all seasons; sometimes just us and sometimes with groups. He was willing to take care of me, as he helped me be in communion with myself, the earth, and the un-designed route of exploration." - Beth Schliebe
Money, Sex and Horses... It's not what you think. Or is it?
The undefinable and unconfinable Connor Hill, Conscious Horse Conscious Rider Facilitator, energy maestro and creator Engineering Your Life, will be our guest on the show to invite us to a very different possibility.
So we are not going to define this topic. If you want to know more, join us to find out!
"It isn't knowing cognitively or having a plan in life that will create the greatest outcome or create the life and living that you desire, it is actually the lack there of. It is the acknowledgment that things change and that you can't know exactly how things are going to work out, but that they will, and all you have to do is choose." - Connor Hill.
Can You Change a Bad Hair Day With Your Horse?
Ever had a 'bad hair' day with your horse, where you don't seem to click, and nothing is working?
Our special guests on this week's show, Cathy Dool and Arlene Schmidek, are Canadian sisters who began riding when they were very little. They went from a deep love of horses, riding quarter horses and thoroughbreds, doing gymkhanas, pack trips, racing, western pleasure competitions, rodeos, you name it! As they got older they started to buy into the 'problems' with horses, and seemed to get less and less joy with their horses, until finally they gave up riding and sold their horses.
That is.. until they came across the tools of Access Consciousness and Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider and reconnected with the ease and joy and natural sense of communion they had with horses as children.
Cathy and Arlene now facilitate Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider classes and invite people to use many simple yet dynamic tools for getting over the 'bad hair days' with horses... whether that is with a particular horse, or just horsing around in general!
“Horses are non-judgment and are like instant mirrors for humans. They sense a person’s emotions, intentions, and thoughts that we humans convey subconsciously through our body language. Working with horses and observing their responses, you can learn how to communicate more effectively, manage your emotions and face your fears...”
Does Your Connection To Your Horse Make You a Better Rider?
Can you become a better rider by creating a different kind of connection with your horse?
This weeks topic is really about communion... creating a relationship between you and horses that has no barriers.
Our special guest for this episode is Hanne Stigaard. Ms. Stigaard was born and raised in the little green fairytale country of Denmark. She is a mother of 3, a Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider Clinic Facilitator, and has been facilitating greater relationships between horses and people for many years.
"Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider is a lot about clear communication and communion with horses. Horses do speak ‘horse’ loud and clear, and they do know how to connect to people – so the limitations of the communication and level of communion is often on the people side. We play with tools to get rid of whatever limits us from awareness, communion and energetic communication and this brings huge changes to the participants (both the people and the horses!)."
