What’s the format of the program?
When you join, you will get a grateful kiss from your horse (who doesn’t love a horse smooch?!) plus instant access to all the videos, modules & bonuses in Beautifully Connected™ & access to the Facebook community.
Elaine, are these all videos lessons?
Yes they are :) Beautifully Connected™ includes 9 video lessons with my wonderful Irish horses, Ozzie & Matilda - perfect to build connection with your horse on the ground & in the saddle.
Is Beautifully Connected suitable for new horses or first time horse owners?
110% yes! The first step for any horse-human partnership, is to work together and build a bond, starting with communication & connection. With these connection exercises, you can build an awe-inspiring partnership with your horse! So it’s perfect if you are the proud owner of a new horse, or if your horse is the proud owner of a first time human!
What age does my horse & I need to be?
As this course includes both groundwork & riding lessons, this course is only suitable for horses over 4 years of age. We do not promote riding horses 3 years or age or younger, as their bodies are not fully mature until at least 5.5 years of age - and older than that too. At Listening to the Horse, we allow our young horses to grow up slowly. You must be over 18 years of age to purchase or use any of our products, courses or any items or online training solutions.
No you don't :) Wherever you normally work with your horse is perfect.
It's winter where I live and it's freezing. Can I start this course now or should I wait?
We get snow here in Ireland in the winter, so I totally understand! For me, I like to use the bad weather in the winter to concentrate more on groundwork & building connection
with my horses. That way I can keep working with my horses, even during the winter.
And I don't feel bad we've done nothing in months due to hard ground or snow. All of these lessons in Beautifully Connected are designed to be short. Think 10-15 minute sessions.
And they can really help your horse.
For me, these exercises are a way to stay connected to my horse over the winter. Then once the spring arrives, we can get back to a lot more riding & fun activities in the fine weather. You also get 4 years access to this program, so once you purchase it you can work through it as slowly or quickly as suits you.
We believe in quality, not quantity. And luckily, so do our horses! So if you can spend 1 or 2 fifteen minute groundwork or riding sessions with your horse each week - that sounds perfect. Plus with our thoughtfully designed ‘small chunk’ connection lessons, you’ll always be able to have fun with your horse!
I bought these exercises, how do I log in & watch them?
When you purchase you will get an email with all your login details. If it hasn't arrived please check your spam & promotions folder as sometimes your email gets hidden in there (ugh, technology I know!). If it's not there, please email our team and we'll be happy to get you all set up :) Email us: email@example.com
Is this course suitable if I only do groundwork with my horse?
Yes and no! This course has both groundwork and riding lessons.
Is this for English or Western riders?
These exercises are for both English & Western riders. It doesn't matter the style of your saddle or what type hat you wear. All that matters is that you love spending time with your horse & want to create an inspiring partnership together.
My horse sometimes demonstrates behaviour that is a major safety concern - such as rearing, biting, bucking, bolting, etc. It this course suitable for me?
No, this course does not address or fix major behavioural problems. We would advise you to contact your vet as a lot of these types of issues begin with pain the horse has.
Do I need any special type of equipment?
No, just your usual gear is fine. We do find a rope halter & 12 foot rope very useful for groundwork.
If I purchase now, can I watch the exercises later when I have more time?
Absolutely! I know it’s a crazy time in the world right now, so that’s why you get unlimited 24/7 access to all the course modules and bonuses, on all your smartphones, laptops & ipads, for 4 years from the date of purchase or the life-time of this course, whichever is greater.
What technology do you need?
This program is 100% online! You will need a computer or smartphone/tablet connected to the internet.
Does this program including 1-1 coaching support?
This program is a self-study program. This program does not include coaching support. You can learn more about our other programs at www.greyponyfilms.com
What currency are the prices in?
All our prices are in USD dollars. I know that takes a bit of head scratching
if you live in Europe or Australia, but I’ve found this handy website
that makes it easy to convert the numbers into your local currency :)
Hey Elaine, is this a one time charge?
Yes! This is a one-time payment only. There is no ongoing subscription. So you don't need to worry. All you need to do is share the great news with your horse & look forward to having lots of fun together :)
If you live in Europe, then the grey suits in Brussels have said that all online businesses have to charge Europeans VAT. I’m sorry about that. Trust me, horses are a lot simpler to figure out, than keeping up with all this VAT stuff!
Do you have a refund policy?
You bet we do! When you enroll in Beautifully Connected™, and don’t get all the skills, strategies & exercises you need to build connection with your horse using 100% kind methods in the first 14 days, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to give you your money back.
What if I’m still not sure?
If you've still got Qs, here is what I recommend. You can email me email@example.com and ask me any questions you have. I’m happy to help.
