Exceptional Horsemanship

Magical School for Horses and Humans

It’s about more than a well-behaved horse. take your horse on a journey of mythical proportions.

You will always find the results you want on the other side of the changes you need to make to have them. If what you are doing now produced the results you want, there would be no gap between your results and your goals

To have these results, you first have to be willing to accept that what you are doing now isn’t working, or at least not well enough. Being aware and accepting that you need to stop doing what isn’t working and do something different is the first step in getting new and better results. Letting go of the beliefs that you cling to isn’t easy, but there is no case where you can pick up something new without setting down what you are holding on to too tightly now. If the actions you are taking now were capable of giving you the result you want, you’d have them now. Are you willing to give up what you like doing because you’re comfortable doing it to achieve an outcome better than the one you’re already producing? The results you want require new actions, Larger goals, will require more consistent effort to achieve it. Some people are right now producing the results you want. They will believe different things than you and will be doing things differently. You can only have what they have when you make the changes you need to make to have it. Is there is a gap between what you want and what you have? If you want to be mediocre, that’s your business. If you want to be Exceptional, that’s my business.

    Lauren, Seeing you ride Monty this morning giving him confidence to tackle a busy street with garbage trucks, APS trucks, bikes, cars, monthly street trash pickup with tree limbs pilled high, cardboard boxes, black plastic bags without major incident was a testament to your EXCEPTIONAL HORSEMANSHIP training methods. I’ve watched first hand over the last 6 weeks as you instilled respect and thought instead of reaction to a young 6 year old Tennessee Walker gelding who was insecure when riding alone or out front and had numerous bad spooking experiences with his former owner who lacked confidence. Today you saddled him, mounting from your truck bumper easily using your curbside training he learned the first lesson, and off you went walking down the street laden with loads of spooking potential. You gave him time to process everything he saw, stopping without rushing so he could explor...

    I rode MAGIC for the first time after having him for 4 years; and in a rope halter!!! I’m his 6th owner. 2 years ago, he came home after 8 months at an Arab training stable. During this period, I was told I couldn’t ride him due to an ‘Injury’. The trainer dropped him off at my place and said firmly, to sell him; he was too athletic for me. HUH? He was there for 8 months. I was told that he was doing great. Before Lauren came into our lives, I reached out to anybody and everybody. I needed help desperately. Now almost 6, this ‘Wild Unruly Horse’ who had become a dangerous , run you over Renegade that couldn’t be caught nicely, has learned how to behave, trust, and respect. Plus, Lauren’s giving me the TeriMagic1confidence to overcome my fears after a near mortal injury from a different horse. She has taken a horse that many would discard or put down and turned him comp...

    Ya know what, Lauren, your newsletters are always the best read I have. Yes, I have lots of books and I watch most of the horse shows but YOURS makes learning fun, normal and it always is logical and down to earth. I think I can testify to, "If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.” At 68 I have no intention of ever stopping riding....

    Thank you, I feel like I learned a lot today. It is always so nice when your brain and your body connect. I think that you do such a wonderful job, you always seem to know what will work, and you know how to explain it. You’re a great teacher. I can’t thank you enough for all your help. I know I pay you, but your expert eyes and wonderful personality sure are making this FUN!!!!...

    Lauren .....Thanks for having me on your list. I always enjoy your newsletter. I will get a video to you of some 'proof' to people who haven't read your books of my 'before' mounting ...off a bucket ...no grace involved ...chiropractor practically necessary for me and 'after' to the graceful bareback mount your BOOK gave me!!!! I think your book should be given to anyone who ever buys a horse - sort of like a welcome wagon bucket. :) I am generally not a read and learn type of person. I am a watch, see, do kind of learner. But your book was so amazingly well written and fun, I taught all 3 of my horses curbside. So, maybe that is the reluctance to the horse 'reading' audience? I was also pleasantly surprised at some 'side effects' of the curbside training. 1st one was I thought Ginger, my mare who I've done more groundwork wi...

    Hi Lauren. How I enjoyed being at the clinic on Saturday. I felt like a sponge...trying to absorb every word. You are indeed a gifted teacher as well as horsewoman. I am now trying to consistently expect exactly what I ask from my horses thanks to you. That is, of course, assuming I have taught them what I want.!! But standstill, does not mean to step anywhere. It took me a while to get my horse to break into a canter in the round pen at liberty. She went from easy trot to fast and faster trot. She has learned now to canter but still rushes. Since your clinic I ask for the canter on my 12 foot line, where I can reach her to give the cue. Now she breaks into the canter from a walk on that line. Will keep working. Do hope we can connect up with you again at a clinic or class. God Bless....

    I had a blast… Never a dull moment with you! I’m always intrigued and amazed with you. You have such profound and thought-provoking perspective! Have you thought about being a counselor?? It’s like learning horse-ABC’s, and then putting the letters together to make “See horse run.”...

    Lauren: I am sitting here tearing up as I try to find the appropriate words to tell you thank you for the break through that Kit and I had yesterday. I don’t have the words but I certainly have the feelings. It was such a wonderful day – the lessons that you keep hoping will come together for me finally did at a competition. Thursday’s lesson really did it… when I told Kit to get back over there at the well, it was your voice and I was finally thinking like Lauren. It is finally coming together – It has been worth the journey and your guidance has been invaluable. Even though the words sound ordinary my appreciation is gigantic....

    Hi Lauren: I SO enjoy your monthly letters! And with the help of your book, my mare "sidles" up to the trailer fender so I can mount and dismount. I'm still riding at 78....

    Had a few extra minutes this morning, and I just finished reading all your blog entries. I REALLY enjoy reading your stuff! I ran out too soon. Can you write one maybe every hour or so … Just kidding … every two hours will do …...
