Pat and John H.
My husband & I started taking lessons from Lindsey in May, 2011. This is something I’ve always wanted to do but hadn’t had the opportunity. We are both in our early 60’s and were concerned that we might be too old :). After researching natural horsemanship in our area (Oshawa), we found Lindsey and we are thrilled.
As I said, this is something I have always wanted to do. It was not something my husband was particularly drawn to do, however he thought it would be nice to do something that I wanted to do as I go sailing which is his passion. He had thought we would “go get on a horse and walk around”. He says now that he had no idea that it meant learning a new language, the language of horses. It’s not at all just about getting on a horse and walking around. As a retired teacher, he has always loved being with children and animals. He’s very pleasantly surprised that he is loving it!
Lindsey is a natural around horses. Her way is soft, gentle and very intuitive. Sure the techniques can be learned, but there is a distinct difference in someone who simply learns how to ‘be’ with horses and someone who resonates with them.
Lindsey’s intuitiveness is almost palpable. We can practically see the telepathy that passes between her and her horses. Her teaching style is wonderfully accepting and warm. She is encouraging and has a great sense of humour.
We feel very blessed to be able to work with Lindsey and look forward to a longer, growing relationship with her and her horses.
