FE195: Love the One You Are With - being the best team possible no matter the sport or issues

Instructor: Andrea Harrison

Course Details

Have you found yourself looking at your animal partner thinking "I don't much like you", "you aren't what I wanted" or wondering how to deal with a behaviour or personality that has caught you unawares? Making the best of a tough situation is great but will only get you so far. Sitting down and really studying the roots of the challenges you face and developing specific, personalized strategies to assist you makes a measurable difference in acceptance and contentment. Animal sports in this regard, are no different than the rest of life. Join us as a Gold (homework, personalized attention), Silver (participant) or Bronze (silent auditor) student and start loving the one in front of you and working better with them too!
