What is your dream with horses?
Did you have a dream when you got your first horse? Has this dream become reality?
Would you like to improve your savvy, your relationship and your communication with your horse, to see unwanted behaviour disappear, to ride with confidence, to develop harmony with your horse, to have fun with him?
Are you fascinated by horses and what they can teach us?
Are you are committed to building a long term harmonious partnership with your horse based on mutual respect and confidence?
Do you believe natural horsemanship is the way to go?
You want that heart and soul connection with your horse to grow exponentially.
You are looking for those moments of harmony and connection to happen more and more frequently, to become the norm, not the exception. This is what will make it feel like both you and the horse are winners.
You want to accelerate your success and the achievement of your horsemanship goals.
You want to be the best you can be, and bring out the best in your horse(s).
You might be overwhelmed with the amount of information available and looking for direction on how to best apply it in your situation.
You are asking yourself this question: “Who do I have to become to be a better partner for my horse?”
Geneviève Benoit teaches Parelli Natural Horsemanship, a program based on the natural language and psychology of the horse. Rapport, mutual respect, communication and trust are the keys to winning your horse’s heart. This foundation applies to all horses and to all disciplines of riding, English or Western. It is structured by level to provide a systematic and progressive approach to learning to be savvy with horses. You start at Level 1, and then go on to Levels 2, 3, 4 and more if you wish. Levels 1 to 4 are about teaching people about horses. This is where you will learn to think like a horse and to play their games so that you can communicate. Levels 5 to 6 are where you learn to teach horses. Geneviève is currently studying Level 5 in the program.
- Handling your horse on the ground (safety, training)
- Preparing to ride: saddling, pre-flight checks, mental state of the horse
- Riding with fluidity, freestyle or precision riding
- Playing on line
- Games and exercises on the ground – calm, connected, responsive
- Games and exercises in the saddle
- Understanding horse psychology and behavior
- Developing lightness of response
- Learning the fundamentals of performance
This program is for everybody. You don’t have to be talented or be a stuntman. It does not take years to see the results. All you need is commitment, heart and desire, and the right tools to learn and be effective. It is unique because the information has all been made available to you, in the form of a logical process, and there are lots of ways to access the knowledge Pat has gained and shared over his lifetime. It all boils down to the seven keys to success!
Geneviève’s teaching style focuses on safety for you and your horse, respect for the horse and the rider, having fun and making real progress.
