An early morning start to prepare for the arrival of five first year students from a local college. Their equine course includes a good deal of Monty Roberts' technique and after Christmas they'll be spending time with Kelly Marks at Hartsop. Meanwhile, I have been asked to run through some of the basic ideas, ideals, and techniques, showing where they are similar to traditional BHS and where they differ. The most notable differences are in catching, leading, and the use of body language more generally.
"I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to share some of your knowledge and techniques with me and the other KMC students today. It was a really useful session and great to put the theory into practice with the beautiful Theoden." KMcL
