Thrilled to Learn the Tools
I attended a 3 day Connected Riding clinic this past weekend with my 3 geldings ranging from age 25 to 7. I was stuck in a different place with each of them and was looking for help to move forward in their training.
All the horses that attended the clinic became calmer as we learned to help them release the tension in their bodies. I was thrilled to learn the tools to help my horses to a better posture. My 25 year old quarter horse who had been a heeler in his previous life learned how to bend. My 13 year old quarter horse who could not stop without raising his head in the air like a giraffe can now stop softly with a beautiful head carriage. My 7 year old Rocky Mountain horse gained confidence from learning to stand balanced on all four legs.
Peggy’s teaching is filled with positive energy and good dollop of humor, it is a pleasure to be taught and watch as she works with others. I feel so fortunate to have been able to attend and am looking forward to the next clinic .
Unique tools & techniques & perspectives she offers are priceless
There are so many things I appreciate about Peggy's clinics. The unique tools & techniques & perspectives she offers are priceless. Since my very first Connected Riding experience I remain deeply impressed by the respectful & supportive learning environment she provides--for horse & human alike. Peggy is a rare & authentic teacher, giving students whatever each of us needs in order to grasp the quite literally life changing information she has to share. I thank you, Peggy!
unlocked a great treasure-box of tools
I am just writing to say a huge "thank you" for coming to the Marylnd
Horse Expo this past January. The lecture and demos on Saturday have
unlocked a great treasure-box of tools for me! Many of the concepts
that you presented were things that I "almost" understood....now I feel
empowered by a markedly improved understanding. The biggest change in
my awareness has been in breathing into my back and belly, and the
change in my horse is amazing! Also, you were so kind to spend a great
deal of time with my friend Carmen.
Why didn't I find Peggy Cummings sooner
A huge thank you to Peggy for sharing her knowledge and expertise at a recent clinic held at Wern Farm Livery, Wales in September. I have ridden competitive dressage horses for several decades. Why didn't I find Peggy Cummings sooner, what a revelation she is! Learning that such subtle differences in my 'outline' can make a massive and positive change in the horses outline. WOW!
wouldn't have lasted that long without your work
Hi Peggy and Susan. Just wanted to let you know that Ichobod, the horse who led me to your work, was put down this week just weeks short of his 34th birthday. With your help he did such a good job of teaching me to use my body to help him instead of getting in his way. And he had a successful second career as a school horse helping me teach the same to many, many riders. I miss him terribly after him being in my life for so long, but he really did open up a whole new way of being with horses and a career for me and I'm so grateful to him for that. I know he wouldn't have lasted that long without your work changing my riding, so just wanted to send a note of gratitude to you and your work for helping to make his life longer and so much happier.
