I wrote out a bit more about my weekend of learning, please take a moment to read and share with others whom are looking for a better path down the horsemanship road. It took me a while to find what I was looking for and here it was, right under my nose! Guess that means I am finally ready!
Rendezvous means a meeting at a certain time and place but in French means "present yourselves".
"Present Yourselves!", is a great way to think about the Rendezvous workshops that are put on by Elizabeth Graves. Present yourself as you are. Present yourself with an open mind.
Present yourself ready to learn.
Present yourself for healing.
Present yourself in the present.
Present yourself for a weekend of whole horsemanship learning. Learn about yourself, learn about your horse.
Honestly, I didn't know what to expect going to horsemanship clinic called a rendezvous. I mean, that's not a main stream title. Wait, I didn't want what's being advertised, I wanted something different, something where I wasn't always chasing my horse but it seems that's all anybody is teaching these days or at least that seems to be the "new natural horsemanship ".
Sure I want a natural approach with a kind hand with a traditional twist but I can do without the latest do-dad to buy. After all, I am a horse owner, I have enough expenses.
So, I signed up to attend this rendezvous and I am ever so glad I did. I found healing for my soul, we talked about various physical therapy modalities to use on our own horses, we talked about flexing not breaking, giving not taking, soft and calm, teaching and bending and so much more! Liz is patient, kind, knowledgeable, passionate, and experienced, truly cares about the horse and takes utmost care of the horses in her care as if they were her own.
I am thrilled and delighted that I presented myself for the Elizabeth Graves Rendezvous weekend to learn about the art of horsemanship and I can hardly wait until the next!
