SANDY STANWAY
Licensed Parelli 2* Junior Trainee Instructor NEWSLETTER
WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING Hi All. So much has happened since my last newsletter in March. I travelled to Colorado USA in early May to undertake my 12 week externship at the Parelli University ranch. I learnt so much and achieved more than I could have dreamed. I had already passed my Online & Liberty Level 4 before leaving so only had my Freestyle and Finesse to get in order to pass my level 4 and gain my black string. My lease horse Smokie was wonderful. We got on extremely well and half way through the externship I was able to tape my Freestyle & Finesse level 4. I passed my Freestyle immediately and had 3 small tasks to resubmit to pass my finesse. I resubmitted these tasks and found out in the 2nd last week of the externship that I had passed my level 4. I was awarded my black string at our Externship graduation which is a moment I will not forget in a hurry. I also managed to top score our externship which was the icing on the cake. I have come home as a 2* Junior Trainee instructor. As soon as I complete 10 hours free lessons I will be fully qualified 2* instructor. My plan is to return to Colorado next summer to complete an internship to gain my 3* instructor status. 2* PARTY! We thought seeing everyone again would be a great way to welcome spring and to start the summer season, so we are having a party to celebrate my new 2* status. For all friends, family and anyone interested in Parelli you are invited to our house of on Saturday 1st September, anytime from 7:30pm. BYO drinks and plate for supper. Come along watch the latest Parelli DVDs, see lots of photos of my externship, and meet fellow students. RSVP to Sandy on info@sandystanway.com.

GAME OF CONTACT 14-16 September 2012 Selwyn Equestrian Indoor Arena Instructor - Jackie Chant Clinic coordinator Sandy Stanway One of the first events on my schedule is the upcoming Game of Contact Course with Jackie Chant on 14-16 September. Whilst I was completing my externship Marion Osech taught us Game of Contact. I can honestly say this is what made the biggest difference for my in passing my level 4 Finesse. This information not only teaches how to get your horse to want to take the contact, but also on rider position which makes such a difference. No matter what level you are at, this course will provide you with an immense amount of valuable information to improve your position and help your riding. We still have two rider positions available and auditor places. Auditors are welcome with preregistration, so if you are planning on coming, get your registrations in. I have attached the Game of Contact application form with this newsletter. Please forward it to me asap if you would like to attend. HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR PARELLI SOUTH ISLAND COLT STARTING I mentioned in my last newsletter that I have managed to secure Russell Higgins (4* Parelli Natural Horsemanship Instructor from Hamilton) to come down and spend some time at my place in January/February 2013 to

start horses under saddle. Because of the huge demand Russell has been able to secure the services of James Roberts (3* Parelli Instructor and one of Pat Parellis top Colt Starting specialists) from the UK to come and assist him with colt starting. So we are now able to take a further four young horses to be started. James is excellent and I know anyone who takes up this opportunity will be thrilled with the results. James website for more information is http://www.jrfoundationstation.com/. We are also hoping to run a clinic with James and Russell while they are here. More on that in my next newsletter.

PLEASE NOTE:- Payment for lessons is due in cash or by cheque at the beginning of each lesson.

NEW CHARGES I have altered my fees structure. My new charges are: $50 per hour = 1 hour private one to one lesson at my facility (411 Loburn Whiterock Road, Loburn, North Canterbury) $60 per hour = 1 hour private one to one lesson at your place $40 per hour per person = when two or more people (up to 6) are having a lesson together (any location) Travel will only be charged when I have to travel further than 45 minutes from my home

NEW GROUP LESSONS COMMONLY KNOWN AS WORKSHOPS (Best Value for Money!!) This season I will be offering 3 hour group lessons (or what many people refer to as Workshops) at my facility. These are a great way to get concentrated help at a very reasonable price. Numbers are limited to 6 participants and cost $80 incl gst. These group lessons are suitable for students at all levels. Group lessons/workshops will run on: * Saturday 29th September 2012 9:00am 12:00pm at my property, focusing on Building Confidence both in the saddle and on the ground. * Saturday 10th November 2012 9:00am 12:00pm at my property focusing on Auditions Preparation. This is a great session to get rid of excuses and learn how to successfully prepare to pass your next level via a Parelli audition. * Saturday 1st December 2012 9:00am 12:00pm at my property focusing on Problem Solving. This will help you to establish what is not working at any given time and what to do about it. This is one of the single best things I learnt while on my Externship in the USA. Email me to register for these group lessons. A non-refundable deposit is required at time of booking.

WHITE HORSE HERBALS MEGAN QUINN


The art of using herbal remedies to restore and maintain health and well being in horses is undergoing a revival, along with a growing interest in alternative medicines and natural horsemanship principles and practices. Herbal Medicine is simply the use of plants or parts of plants to support healing and is the oldest form of medicine we know. Horses as domesticated animals are believed to have lived alongside humans for over 7000 years. It is highly possible that the plants remedies that people used to treat their own illness and injuries were also applied to their horse companions. Over the centuries, there have been numerous stories about horses and their responsiveness to various herbal remedies. With the advantages of modern science, many of these remedies have been proven to be valid. At White Horse Herbals, we offer a range of services to support the health and well-being of the domesticated equine. We believe that each horse has a unique personality and physiology, and so we aim to provide an individualised approach to meet your horses needs. Following a detailed consultation process where we take a full history of your horses health, well-being and current living conditions, we are able to put together a herbal remedy specific for your horses needs. Please check out my website - www.whitehorseherbals.co.nz - which is focused around providing holistic health care for horses by advocating a natural lifestyle and supporting health and well being with herbal remedies. I am located in Christchurch and can travel throughout the Canterbury region. Consultations outside Canterbury can also be arranged. Megan Quinn Equine Herbalist (Dip. Clinical Herbal Medicine)
