"Thanks again for taking the time to chat today Kate! I love the confidence I am gaining from all you are teaching me. It is so wonderful to be excited to head off to the paddock to see my horse, knowing I have a plan of what I am going to be working on with her. I love that even if I only have 15 minutes to work with her...I know those 15 minutes will be productive for both me and my horse. Thanks again 😊"
"I can't believe the changes this has already made in my horse. She is really listening and I think ENJOYING the training - and so am I!"
"I have used a lot of online training systems, I live in the UK, and yours is easily the best and most comprehensive. The lessons make sense and I have worked through each step. I am upgrading to the life membership now. Thank you for all of the work you put into making the courses."
"To be honest, I didn't think that training was supposed to be so fun. I LOVE it and I KANDOO it!! Thank you so much, Kate!!"
"Being from a very remote area, it's almost impossible to get trainers to come to me. I was very pleased to find your training and no longer have the need of visiting clinicians. Also, I wanted to thank you for also being so fast to answer my questions - both on the training pages and via email, it really helps, thanks!"
"I just wanted to mention that you have a unique way of giving your students the optimum opportunity to really understand and learn your material. You bring out the best in your students by giving them the option to learn the best way that they can. You have the video which is for those visual learners, the written under the video which is good for the theory based learners and it also reinforces and fills in what we didn't subconsciously take in watching the videos. And, which is the magic that works for me, is giving examples to go with a topic. The examples that you give enable me to identify with my own experience, which allows me to relate to topics that I am not so familiar with, and all of a sudden, it just makes perfect sense to me on an emotional level which gives me a greater and deeper understanding."
"Hi Kate, you are amazing!!! Thank you for all that you do and words can not describe how much you have helped me through my journey recently!"
"I’ve been watching some of your feeds and they are awesome. You just have a way with horses that’s truly unbelievable."
"We did it! First, after walking away from me to avoid being caught yesterday, she walked right up today, then I gave her a treat and she stood while I haltered. After grooming, bridling, I taught "Hips to the Fence" in about 9 minutes. Probably should have stopped sooner, as I think she had it, but I kept making mistakes, so I would repeat. Also, I guess I raised her emotional level too much at the beginning, since she offered to bite me! Settled down quickly though and was right back to 50 (emotional level estimate) after the lesson. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!"
"I just LOVE how my horse seems to be responding to how calm, quiet and soft this work makes me!"
"Oh Kate, I know I have said this before but I love this program. I look forward to tracking my exercise everyday. Also I think my riding confidence has improved. My husband and I have also embraced the Keto diet. We feel so good! It’s amazing my farmer has given up potatoes! He is feeling great. "
" I just watched the video of the meeting and the discussion was excellent. I feel confident that I can get my horse to stand still without too much ado! It is the small practical tips based on years of experience that are coming through loud and clear. Many thanks Kate Fenner for going the extra mile and getting me the link...to be honest I would never have found it..,🙏 "
"Want thank you for your video on training your horse to turn his hindquarters to the fence or mounting block. On seeing it I went straight out and began the first lesson with Gus my 16'2 OTT. I made notes in my diary and now about ten brief lessons later he's got the hang of it. More importantly so have I, learned heaps about my horsey expectations and my patience a lot of it not so good. However Gus and I have set new expectations for our training, he is a very patient teacher, thank you once again for your excellent videos. "
"A good friend of mine recommended you to me and I'm enjoying your blogs and words of wisdom! I have moved from being competitive to enjoying a more 'natural' approach - thinking much more about a partnership with my lovely big gelding Ollie than rosettes and prize money. Really enjoying our schooling sessions rather than stressing about something that's not quite right! Thanks again"
"Kate, the canter Webinar was excellent...I am sure it answered most questions for many different riders! Thank you for taking the time to do this for us."
"I would like to say what a fantastic group this is! I love hearing all of your comments and questions. Your questions really help me with my own training, and I think raising the emotions is something I've never thought about before, instead trying to lower the emotions of an emotional mare which never really worked! To have a clear goal following the path of the training, knowing what we are aiming for and having things go wrong yet remaining calm and asking again, has really helped my mare (we have even had the long line under the tail a couple of times - unthinkable in the past - now she's like oh yeah that's not too bad!). So happy to have found the kind of training that Kandoo is - a like minded bunch - open and honest, kind and respectful, hallelujah and thank you all xx"
"Thank you SO much! I just had the best 15 minutes in the round pen with my mare! I have done hundreds and hundreds of round-pen hours over the years and all the while still not really being comfortable with why I was doing it and feeling like I was just chasing my horses and making them resent me. Your explanation in your Round Pen modules as well as what you discussed in today's GOLD webinar brought such clarity and simplicity to it all finally. I went out and had the most brilliant session with my mare and I think the light came on for both of us. She was learning, I was teaching, and we both had tons of fun too. I understood the WHY behind what I was doing so then it was easy to get the results. By the end she was doing wonderful outside turns at the trot and even the walk, was totally in the bubble and even moved her shoulders away "respectfully" (i.e. she understood) up close. I can't thank you enough. Not sure how I missed it all these years but you made it perfectly clear. I'm finding that in many other of the modules too. I knew the techniques (although I think many of yours are modified and improved) but this one was huge for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"So happy to be on board. I've started at the very beginning and I'm already hooked on the lessons. Your way of explaining things and the video demonstrations are all very logical and easy to follow. Thank you!"
"I just want to say joining Kandoo Training Lifetime GOLD Membership is the best thing I've done for me and my horses in many years ....my only wish is that I'd found you sooner :) I love the fact I can dip in and out when we are I'm ready to move on to the next stage or to find answers when I get stuck so I can be clearer with my communication, or just to catch up on all the webinars and info you put out there....love it and if you ever come back to the UK I'll be signing up to come see you!! "
"Thank you Kate. I find everything you send extremely informative and helpful, easy to follow. Although I’ve been around horses 50 of my 55 years young😊 I’ve never had formal training or lessons. Thank you!"
