Note: CRIC stands for Carolyn Resnick Inner Circle, a program she is offering (for monetary compensation) to provide Internet coaching and which I am currently enrolled.
While I discuss Carolyns’ methods (”Waterhole Rituals’) I am expressing only my opinion to materials – DVD’s, online YouTube videos, her public blog etc… and my impressions of it, as well as how I use it with my own horses, as a review. I am not trained or endorsed by Carolyn Resnick.
Yesterday, I did my Carolyn Resnick’s Inner Circle homework with pony – sharing territory. Usually I do this in the morning but because of my lesson schedule, the only time was the afternoon.
We sat together for about 30 minutes. Nothing special. She came over and visited a few times, but with the change in temps, the grass and having to wait all day for a bit of freedom she was more interested in grazing.
Working with her though has continued a blossoming of an idea in my mind: to make a training center that only uses ponies and minis. I think these smaller horses with big horse attitudes would make it so much easier and approachable for the new horse person and the one afraid of horses.
Because of their size and hardiness, it would also be much cheaper to house them and I could have more “teachers” then I would ever be able to afford with large horses (see my new tag “mini-hearts” to follow this idea). The best thing though is that due to their size no one would be asking me if they could ride the horses or if I would teach riding lessons – something I don’t want to get sucked back into doing.
So cute though was the view of laying on the ground and seeing her nose up close like you would a big horse. She has the most beautiful eye and her face is shaped so delicately. She had the most curious expression on her face while grass was sticking out of her mouth.
