This is very cool.
What a great way to study equine anatomy!
From what I can gather, this woman teaches you how your horse moves via this very inventive and totally clear (and revolutionary) method.
She paints on them.
Yup. She does it herself.
Here is the website.
WHO IS SHE?
The website wasn’t as informative about her as I’d like… but it did have this blurb:
Gillian is professional Sports and Remedial Therapist specialising in assessing and mobilising muscles, improving performance and educating horse owners. Gillian is a BHS Senior Coach and Stable Manager.
With a bubbly, engaging presentation style, a passion for anatomy and biomechanics and with the welfare and comfort of the horse in mind, she gives lectures all over the world to anyone keen to ride or train sensitively. She has given demonstrations at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky as well as at the Horse University in Brazil and the horse Expo in South Africa.
She has written several popular books and DVDs. There are more in the pipeline. She writes regularly magazines including British Dressage, Horse and Rider, Eventing World Wide and Your horse Magazine.
Gillian has a First Class Honours Degree and Human and Equine Remedial Sports Massage qualifications. She is also a McTimoney-Corley Animal Manipulator. Gillian regularly attends courses in all her fields of interest and is committed to giving both humans and equines the best possible levels of care and consideration. She works closely with Vets and regularly attends veterinary seminars and conferences.
Gillian has represented the BHS in Sweden as part of the Leonardo Exchange programme designed to share knowledge with our European Counterparts. This has given her valuable insight into alternative methods of training and treatments, the best of which she incorporates into her own practices.
On a more personal note, Gillian competes at British Eventing from pre –novice to Advanced level, BD, BSJA and Team Chasing.She has represented Great Britain at the Student Rider’s Nations Cup in Austria 2004 and Canada 2006 where she achieved Individual gold for dressage.
Gillian currently owns one horse, with whom she competes and is her model for HORSES INSIDE OUT.
She has a series of books and DVDs… I went to the page and discovered, however, that they are all in the UK.
So, I wrote to her to see if she sells in the US. I haven’t heard back yet but I’ve been told they are on Amazon. Here is a link to one.
There were also several videos on You Tube.
Here is a direct link to one.
I’ve included some screen grabs that I took from the video.
For me, I love this! I would go to one of her demonstrations in a heartbeat! What a fun way to learn!
I will keep you posted if I learn where to buy her books in the US.
HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY!
