CAPPO LESSONS VERY REVEALING
The lovely Cappo has safely escorted some very excited Ladies through various types of Lessons but one interesting thing has come out of it all.
He dobs them all in for any riding mistakes, bad habits, incorrect techniques, just like he was an International Coach himself 🙂
If something is wrong, he tells Mrs. HP…..like……..
- One Rider was found to be having Hands coming backwards rather than forwards, during the Canter
- Another F.E.I. Rider was judged by the Horse as having used too much Leg and too much Hand.
- A third, one dominant Hand…….
- One Canter strike off now as easy……Lady with one weaker Leg.
and so if You are having a Lesson on Him, beware, he is s dobber 🙂
but, highly valuable stuff indeed. Can be life changing.
CAPPO STARTS F.E.I. LESSONS
The wonderful Cappo is now helping several Ladies, to learn about the higher movements and one F.E.I. Rider to overcome a changes problem with Her Horse.

FEDERAL SKILLS MEETING – ADELAIDE
This Meeting ( which could have been done by email but involved People flying in from all over Australia and staying at the Airport Hotel)
The Meeting was simply a Rubber Stamp of what had been worked out by Sub Committees around the Country. Thousands of Tax Payers $$$ were wasted, flying People in from all over the Country.
I sat there all Day and did not have 1 input Grrrrr. Why they had me there is the mystery…..well, I know why and you can work it out.
In short, it was a Bureaucratic take over of Historic Australian Horsemanship, by the Number 1 ticket Holder of the new Scientific attack ( Horsesa) in order to gain financial benefits for Andrew McLean and the failed systems of the Scientists, who do not know that they do not know, because they are not qualified to know.
Disgusting and very concerning!!!!…….”read my Lips”……this now insures more Deaths, not less Deaths. Juliana Waugh is most concerned!!
FEDERAL GOVT SKILLS ACCREDITATION – HORSE STARTING
HP has been seconded onto a Federal Govt Committee to formalize ‘Horse Starting ‘ systems for accreditation of Young Horse Trainers in the future. Should be quite interesting 🙂
