April 2020 Newsletter.

Well, Guys.

What can I say about March apart from its not exactly what I expected or anyone else?

How are you all doing?

I know I am not alone to be suffering the fall out of the COVID 19 virus as so many of us have come to a grinding halt. So many plans put on hold, and I am going to keep saying that “Put on HOLD”

Both my sons and their families live in Europe and I planned to go see them all this July, another thing on hold. Goodness knows when I will see them again and my new two Grandchildren. Thank goodness for Whatsapp.

All clinics and lessons started to stop from the 20th March so the great excitement of the Head to Hand clinic with Laura Bird and myself had to be postponed until 25th July, fingers crossed it can continue then.

Also, the body and Mind Mastery Clinics have been postponed but we have not yet fixed a date.

On a positive note, I do feel all the contact clinics went well; our last one was at Margaret River and some great discoveries and good feedback from all that attended. The Telerein was a great success with all the riders.

I have started up the 30 Day Yoga again with a new set of classes, if you didn’t do it before but now fancy giving a go, just send me a message and I’ll add you into the group. I reckon we may as well do my yoga daily as it has such a calming and yet supplying and strengthening effect on us all in this difficult time.

So while I can’t get out and coach, at this moment. I am currently working on still been able to give you lessons. Lots of coaches offer video lessons and they do have a use, but I have myself had a lot of video lessons and realise they are limited in what they give over the long term. There is a delay in the information going back and forth of days. So the instructions are not in the NOW. I am used to being with you, and seeing both the rider and horses mood, energy and emotion and with that adjusting what we do.

So next month I am launching a new product for all my riders near and far.

The ‘Sound’ system of training.

So many times my clients say “I wish I had your voice in my head every ride”.

Others have said, “I just don’t know what to do each day when I ride”.

Now you can have exactly that, my voice in your ear and a plan of what you will do in a training session.

My latest idea will hopefully generate me an income in these difficult times, while I can’t travel, plus still give you a lesson every week via this system. I am putting together audio lessons every week. These are affordable and will keep you on track until we can see each other again. I will be offering three options for purchasing these lessons.

Option 1: You pay a monthly subscription of $40.00 per month, you can cancel at any time. This is an introductory price and it will increase in 2021.

This works out to be $10.00 per lesson and you get all these extras. When you consider a lesson at my home are $70.00 so you are getting all this for almost half the price of a lesson at Keysbrook.

This includes:

An audio lesson per week.

Plus a diagram of the arena layout and instructions per lesson each week.

Private membership to the FB page so we can learn from each other and work as a community this will open discussions of what you found or had issues with.

A weekly Question and answer FB live session. this is an opportunity to iron out any issues you may be having.

The option of an online lesson from a video you send to me, of you riding parts of the lesson at a reduced rate.

Option 2: A yearly subscription which is a one-off payment of $395.00. This is an introductory price and will increase in 2021.

This works out to be less than $7.60 per lesson and you get all these extras. When you consider a lesson at my home is $70.00 so you are getting all this for a bargain price.

This includes:

An audio lesson per week.

A diagram of the arena layout per lesson this will be posted on the F B page.

Private membership to the FB page so we can learn from each other and work as a community this will open discussions of what you found or had issues with.

Option 3: One-off lesson. You can purchase the single lesson from our sound system of training library. This is available on the website cost is $29.95 per recording.

This includes:

One audio lesson.

Diagram of the arena set up with cones and measurements.

We are hoping to have this on the website over the next two weeks for you to purchase.

Let all hope this dreadful situation passes as soon as possible and we can protect ourselves to not become victims of it. Try to stay positive, eat healthy do yoga with us, and if your horse is at your home ride to lose yourself from the situation of the world.

Happy Riding, stay smiling.

Love Ann
