Inspired Riding: How to be more patient with yourself and your horse.

January 6, 2020

Beth Lauren Parrish: "People talk about wanting to be more patient, but what does that really look like? I'm going to first address being more patient with ourselves when things aren't going to plan first. 

As a child, I knew that waiting for the bell to ring for school to let out on the days when I had my riding lesson was absolute torture. I would stare at the clock and hardly pay attention in classes. All I could think about was which school horse I might be riding (there were about 40 at my barn) and if I was going to get to..."

Beth Lauren Parrish:

"As a full time riding instructor for nearly twenty years, I don't think I would have ever predicted that most of my clients are now in different parts of the world. When I had several setbacks to my life these past couple of years, I decided that I wasn't going to stop sharing my passion for riding. 

I developed remote coaching services, which involve video chats with my clients to give them insights. I help them find solutions for their horse time and they end up having a lot more fun.
 
I now have a monthly group that has some other fun options. Each month, we get together for a video chat and..." 
Inspired Riding: How 5 Day Challenges Can Create Change For You and Your Horse

Inspired Riding: How 5 Day Challenges Can Create Change For You and Your Horse

December 23, 2019

Beth Lauren Parrish: "

Last year, I started offering 5 Day Challenges in my Inspired Riders Facebook group. These challenges are a really fun way to get group members to connect and learn together. 
 
The first one was a big hit, as the title was, "How to hear your horse's thoughts." In that one, I taught the basics of animal communication, encouraged the participants to tune into their horses and then get brave enough to exchange photos with other members. Some of the results were incredible. Many were able to see, hear and feel things going on with horses they had never met in person. It was beautiful to see the exchange happen. Even if they weren't able to get any confirmation, I was so proud of everyone who tried the Challenge and were open to new perspectives. 
 
There were many other Challenges I've presented, the latest called, How to Create New Habits....

December 9, 2019
Beth Lauren Parrish: "I've been helping a mare in training with her trailer loading practice this week. 

When we first started, this mare was nervous and did quite a bit of backing up and spooking. My goal was to offer her a sense of calm and Relaxation. I knew that even if we didn't get her in the trailer right away, I just wanted her to feel safe near it. I encouraged her to investigate the trailer and when she would back up or spook, I moved with her and casually brought her closer to the trailer again. I wanted her to realize it was no big deal. We ended that session with her two feet on the ramp.

The next day...."
