22 Apr Horse Training (and De-Stressing) From Northern Ireland
Below is a promotion by DeAnn Sloan from Horse Nation which has been recently featured on their website. The video was created at Ballygraffan and will show you a breathing technique to release your anxiety and learn to manage it in different situations, all with a horsey twist – I hope you enjoy it!
Original piece from Horse Nation:
Here are some horse training tips from June Burgess in Northern Ireland. So, grab a cuppa, sit back and get ready to learn!
An Anit-COVID-19 sweetie all the way from lovely Ballygraffan in serene Co. Down, Northern Ireland. My Irish sis (by choice), June Burgess, offers de-stressing for us and information on getting back to basics to re-start your horse. Get a cuppa – put your feet up — enjoy – and breathe.
Reset Stress to Relax is a useful tonic for us and our horses that have “little issues.”
FYI, I met June at the EQUUS Film Festival three years ago when it was in NYC. She and I became sisters at first sight. She is a champion Eventing rider, runs Horses for People Equine Therapy and created a bliss-delivering B&B at her horse farm Ballygraffan outside of Comber. I have de-boned myself in one of her cottages – watching her horses meander over the countryside that bespeaks “Game of Thrones.” I filmed her exercising William her champion eventing horse across the same countryside.
