Great News for Nambour in Queensland
Gary Dougles is returning to Nambour in Queensland on November 22 with his amazing equine workshop, Conscious Horse Conscious Rider.
CHCR was also held in Nambour last year, where some 80 horses and riders attended the two-day class at Nambour Showgrounds in Bli Bli Road. More recently, the class was held at El Caballo Resort, Wooroloo in Western Australia. Gary presents CHCR in venues across the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
CHCR is the workshop for horse lovers and everyone else. International horse medium and author Gary Douglas facilitates a fascinating equine workshop that combines stunning and unique outlooks on communicating with horses, to improve the performance of both horse and rider.

Have you ever been lucky enough to be present when Gary Douglas works on animals using the Access Consciousness tools; particularly with horses?
When I met Gary for the first time at a Level 2&3 class, he somehow knew that I was interested in animals and he immediately urged me to use the tools with them. I was very intrigued, but it was not until I saw him working on cats, dogs, horses and little furry things in a class that I became aware just how powerful the tools can be when applied to animals. For me, it has been amazing to see and to watch Gary perform miracles.
For years now Gary has been facilitating the 'Conscious Horse Conscious Rider' (CHCR) workshops all over the world and he has been asking, "What will it take to have more people involved working with the animals?"
"Often, the person is more willing to do something for their pet than they are to have someone come and facilitate them." Gary Douglas
Just a little while ago, Gary was asked if he would do a facilitator's training for CHCR workshops and he said YES! How did we get to be so lucky?
So for the first time, in August, Gary is going to facilitate people for 6-days in being a CHCR Facilitator. The class is in Boerne, Texas! Find all the details and application process here.
For me, it has been amazing to see and to watch Gary perform miracles.
What an amazing possibility for all of us who are interested in horses and the facilitation of people with their horse. If you had a chance to see Gary work like this, you'd know what I mean. I am so excited for all of us! What change can we create in the world? What else might be possible?
Have you always known you have a gift with horses and you just were not sure where to go from there? Or are you already working with horses and looking to improve your skills? CHCR Facilitator's training will give you an awareness on facilitating people to become better riders, assist horse-and-rider with any obstacles they have in the way of riding together; and changing problems the horse has, in their way of being balanced and happy! What else is possible?

PS: On the home page of conscioushorseconsciousrider.com there is a video of a class Gary facilitated in Queensland. Suzy is there too. Note the peace and ease that's available to both horses and people at the end of class, captured in the final zoom shot.
Thundering hooves pounding the hard, sun-baked earth, along with screaming, high-pitched neighs. The sound moved my body to the window. "What’s going on!?"
Short bursts of galloping with a stop, spin, twist and a buck. Gallop back down the fence-line. The neighbours horse is calm and standing quietly, steadily watching her mate going crazy. More thundering hooves; this time down to the house gate at a flat-out gallop. "Will she stop in time? Yes!" The horse and gate are still in one piece. "Whew! That was close. What’s up with you Chevy?"
I was observing this behaviour through the kitchen window. My horse, now only being five-metres away at the gate, was acting totally bizarre.
Within seconds I was out the back door. Too late! She was gone; a flat-out mad gallop back to the far fence-line where the neighbours horse is quietly observing this odd behaviour. Unlatching the gate I walk through into the paddock. The distinctive, "screech" of the gate-hinge catches Chevy’s attention. She turns, screams a stressful neigh at me, spins around and gallops full-pelt towards me and the gate. "Is she going to stop?" Side-swiping without touching me, in a flurry of dust and hooves, she skids to a halt. With a thud and a rattle her chest makes slight contact with the gate. How she timed that only a horse knows. I felt for sure that the gate and I would be history and Chevy's body broken.Read more...
“Every time I got on a horse that knew more than I did, I learned about being a better rider.”
How many of us actually need to be taught by our horses instead of trying to command them and force them into doing things? Rather than assuming you’re in control, would you be willing to consider that the thousand plus pounds of horse you’re sitting on is letting you ride it out of their choice?
Gary created Conscious Horse Conscious Rider to improve the performance of the horse and the rider. He leads the classes with humor and practical lessons. As Gary says, “The horses are conscious and it’s the rider that makes the mistakes.” He demonstrates how you can communicate with your horse and suggests you begin by asking them a question. If you use this technique, “Your horse will actually start to do what you ask, because they really want to please you.” Read more...
