32 | When something bad happens to your horse

When something happens to our horse that we would label as very "bad", like an incident, what's the best way to handle that? And how do we manage our own minds through these events? That's what we're going to investigate this week in Weekly ST.

Join Weekly ST and discover what's the most important thing to remember when something terrible happens.

Plus, discover three empowering STrategies to help your horse regain her health and strength and discover which questions to ask yourself to show up as your best and strongest self during hard times.


Weekly STory: Gina & Roman

Listen in this week, for the story of Gina Serkasevich from the USA who helped her horse regain her health and strength after an incident at a show.

Gina is a Scholar in the Basic ST Instructor Certification Program, together with her horse Roman, a German warmblood.

In Weekly ST, we explore how Gina found Straightness Training, the obstacles she faced with her horses, and the 3 STrategies she used to get the results she was looking for.



When we see riders who look like us excelling, we believe that it is possible for us to succeed as well!
