Giving Yourself and Your Horse "No Fault" Insurance

No-Fault Insurance Photo by Teddie ZieglerI received the following email from a student and I wanted to share it with you, my readers.  I want to thank Sue for this lovely letter as this is a reminder of the value of the Waterhole Rituals for self development.

The Rituals help you find your authentic self, which helps you grow a deeper connection.  What helps give value to the Waterhole Rituals are the rules that are set up for them to be successful.  One of those rules is that you and your horse have No-Fault Insurance.  Therefore, no matter what happens, there is no blame, no anger, and no frustration.  There is also no memory of what didn't work.  It just is what it is and no more.

Letter from Student:

Today, I am saying thank you to Carolyn for her "no fault insurance." I had a very miserable training session with my little 11 month old Chincoteague pony (fly spray) last night. I scared the peedaddle out of him--unintentionally. For damage control, I tried to get a "hello" out of him. NO WAY. I sadly left his large pen.

This morning I went out to assess the damage. Many folks say that once you lose their trust, it can take a long time to get it back. I kept hoping that Carolyn was right. Hooray! He ran up to greet me and followed me around and let me hold him.

Thank you, Carolyn, for "no fault" insurance. You give us amateurs hope.

Most sincerely, Sue


I developed my Method because I could see what was happening to horses in the training of them through the improper use of tack. What Sue acted upon was the rule of No-Fault insurance and that the horse had the freedom to leave her influence at any time, without punishment.

The reason this is a powerful rule is that there is a deeper trust that happens when a horse has not experienced force or capture against his will. What I want to remind everyone is that a horse naturally likes humans and will learn anything we wish to teach them quickly if approached properly.

When working a horse at Liberty, without bribing a horse, you find out that they truly are connected to us in the same way that we are connected to them. There is a companion energy shared between a horse and human that the Waterhole Rituals unveil.

Don't forget my Annual "Beyond the Waterhole Rituals" Clinic coming up in September and my Online Waterhole Rituals Classes starting in October.  You can click on the links below for more information.










Have a great weekend!  Be on the lookout for new horse and human sightings and may the horse be with you.

Warmly, Carolyn
