 Jamie

 

Anything that you learn from Jamie was likely taught to Jamie by Stormy. At 26 now he is the smae age as Jamie but 10x wiser. He is a sensitive RBI/RBE who loves to be loved more than anything! He like to go out on a nice fast ride and be told after how amazingly fast he was. Although he is a forward going horse he is also very sensible and will always look after you if he feels you need it. Jamie got Storm at 12 going though teenage times together they now have a bond like no other. Stormy has attened and run more clinics and lessons than most horses doing close to 10 days of clinics a year with multiple instructors during Jamie's early learning (2002-2016). He also loves Liberty and bridless work of any kind. When he first came to Jamie he was head shy and had a rearing issue. These were of course linked (though Jamie didn't see this for many years) and once we stopped using a contact on him all the time and got him to understand a leg and seat connection/que he become much happier in his ridden work. Since this he has gone back into contact work, he still struggles to trust the contact and will often react alot to simple contact mistakes. But if your able to have soild hands and warm him up correctly you'll have a truely amazing contact ride. Quite honestly this horse is a perfect partner he can be wild, forward going and will sometimes play cheeky games. But he always does it to please you and get you to tell him how wonderful he is. I think he understands people better than other horses with a tendancy to come over to people before other horses. 

 

Meet the Humans

 Zoë

 

A former 2 Star Parelli Professional who has studied horsemanship with James Roberts and spent an extended time studying at Pats ranch, Zoë is the most over qualified admin assistant ever. All joking aside Zoë is Jamie's partner in business and love making a combination that can't be beaten! She has an unrivalled passion for horses and keeps all our horses looking beautiful and there health at its high possible level. She also keeps all our admin flowing smoothly, whilst being a loving mother to two cheeky blonde children (see below for details), four sensitive and often ridiculous horses (see meet the horses section for details) and two miniature Dachshunds  All the while helping Jamie training the horses, needless to say she is incredible. But of course her story didn't start here. Zoë had a horse as a teenager called Baba. Her impulsive chestnut arab who had a scary resemblance to Stormy (Jamie's first ever horse! To see photos of Baba go to Our Life in Pictures section under the about section of the website). Baba's main issue was once he was on grass hacking out there was no stopping him. A complete speed demon! but this didn't push Zoë to find answers as she found it great fun ... most of the time. Once Baba past Zoë got out of horses for a time and during this time she travelled Australia in a VW camper van with her then partner. On this massive trip from Melbourne to Melbourne via western Australia  she when't on a trail ridding afternoon and got to ride a parelli trained horse. A fire was lit as she realised how easy ridding could be and how light a horse can be. Once back in England she found an instructor and began training with him. At the time James wasn't well known, but in time his centre became the place to have your parelli horse started. This started her parelli instructor journey. Having got the skills from James she when't out to Pagosa Springs to study to become an instructor and first meet Jamie.

Who was at the time extremely grumpy driving horse guy that made sure the driving horses were trained to the highest level. Zoë then came home a 2 Star Instructor and became a well loved instructor in her area with a good client base and a beautiful challenging horse called Buzz who push her horsemanship even further until .... Disaster struck ... Zoë suffered a subarachnoid brain haemorrhage  and was told she had a 30% chance of surviving. During her recovery she was unable to keep up her Parelli certification and Parelli gave her no slack. Feeling crushed she lost her wonderful horse Buzz to many injuries caused by being such a high spirited animal that no one could ride (he needed a job and had lost it because of Zoë's health). I hassen to add that with help from her family she has made a full recovery and this is where Zoë's rather intense story has it's "happy ending". during her recovery she got a new horse, Puff. A young unstarted orange Arabian with cute ears and a cute nose. Zamal has all these traits because that is exactly what she told the dealer she wanted. She got Zamal/Puff home and began his ground work training and discovered he was very very sensitive and cheeky. Having had over 2 years off training horses and many years since she sat on unstarted horses at James Roberts Zoë decided she needed help. She called Jamie who had only just got back from the states and was offering horse training. Zoë called and asked for help and ask if Jamie could come stay at hers for a week to help her get on her horse as she didn't feel she needed him formally started has she already had so much skill in young horses from James. During this week they realised how perfectly they worked together and they made a working partnership where Zoë would help Jamie with his shocking admin and inability to reply to emails within the month. Of course with time they realised this was more than just a working relationship in was an amazing partnership and the rest is history. Now many of you are thinking, 'thats really sweet but is the Arab called Puff or Zamal ... are there two arabs? whats happened there?' Well. Zamal is Puff's registered name. Type it into google ... you'll discover why he is now called Puff. And he is now one of our best trained horses being centre of attention at any of our demo's. Hopefully you'll meet Zoë soon.
