Ron McLoughlin

We are pleased to welcome Ron McLoughlin back for more horsemanship training. All levels are welcome! Bring your own horse or ride one of ours.

McLoughlin has held over 900 horse handling clinics around the world teaching thousands of students an advanced, systematic way to become accomplished, riders. Ron’s school is founded on the work of Monte Foreman, the Father of Natural Horsemanship, who’s humane and compassionate philosophy revolutionized modern horsemanship. Ron studied under and worked extensively with Monte and continues his legacy.

Topics covered at clinics include:

  • Humane & effective ’classical stock seat’ methods
  • Improve your horse’s responsiveness & agility
  • Effective communication between horse & rider
  • Correct rider position y Lateral movements & control
  • Importance of correct diagonals
  • How to put Foreman-style ‘balance’ into your stops
  • Lightness—where & how?
  • Methods for correct leads
  • Your horse’s footwork & way of going

The training will be held at Heavenly Way, located near Hanging Rock State Park, just 40 minutes from Winston-Salem or Greensboro, our facility features beautiful trails for riding on the 300-acre property of woods, meadows, ponds and streams. We also a have a small round pen, a medium round pen and an Olympic sized arena for training.

“The Golden Flower Tai Chi Retreat is a great respite from the stresses and demands of our everyday life. It can be anything you want it to be…a time of relaxation, soul searching, exercise, getting in touch with nature, learning, meditating.”

European Instructor Training Oct 2015 BE @ Belgium
Oct 30 @ 10:30 am – Nov 4 @ 5:00 pm

The Annual European Instructor Training is being held in the UK this year.

We are excited to announce basic details of the next International Golden Flower Instructor Training with Master San Gee Tam and Chief Instructor Annukka. We are looking forward to welcoming you to England for this uplifting and energising event which will continue our development as instructors and will support trainees in their process of becoming an instructor.

Intention
This training is organised by the UK team: Heike, Janet, Gill, Marie, Martin, Tom and Tricia – working closely with Sangee and Annukka. Our intention is to co-create the best training we have ever hosted by working well together as a team, by using clear communication and by generating a conscious space for the event to unfold into. It is important to us that you come and, with your participation, help to create transformation and raise the level of human consciousness. We want all instructors to support their trainees in coming to this event. Senior students should check with their instructor before registering.

Event Outline
The training is 5 days, starting on Friday October 24th and finishing at on Wednesday October 29th. The cost will be approximately £750 – with an early bird discount (To be confirmed). Please book the days into your diaries now and start having conversations with anyone you need to talk to get into alignment with attending this fabulous event.

Place
The training will take place at the Gilwell Park Scout Activity Centre, situated to the North-East of London. Gilwell offers us comfortable rooms (with WiFi), a bright spacious training room, good food and pretty gardens. Gilwell is close enough to London to offer good travel connections but far enough out to feel nature.

Masterclass
On Sunday November 2nd we will have a Masterclass in Oxford (suitable for all levels of ability) and on Saturday the 1st of November we hope to be able to offer more opportunity for private lessons alongside the few days before the main event – these details are yet to be fixed.

To book please visit Golden Flower UK
