Over my time in Texas I learnt so much which has inspired my career goals. I gained knowledge and experience within the movement method, this has increased my confidence in sharing information to parents and carers and has given me a greater insight to the theory.
I have been able to take my stress-free dressage training back to our sessions, which benefits the horses, students and staff. I also developed my professional demeanor and learnt the importance of team work. I made lifelong friends with other students who were from all around the world, now I have opportunities to visit them in their international Horse Boy centres. I believe I came back from Texas as a more developed professional. Having a better understanding of the theory behind Horse Boy has allowed me to re-evaluate the ways in which I would train a horse.
My advice for future students is simple, the more you put into this the more you will gain. Work hard, take notes at every opportunity, remember to laugh lots, eat plenty and have fun this is a once in a life time experience and it goes far too quickly.3 words to describe New Trails – Magical, Challenging and Empowering! – Gabrielle Brooke
