Ever feel too rushed, stressed or tired for a training session? Everybody does sometimes, but what should you do on those days?
CT Coach, Melissa Deal, suggests a ‘gratitude groom’ as a great way to connect with your horse on those difficult days. In this video, she talks you through what it is and then shows you with her horse, Eclipse – she says she doesn’t know who’s enjoying it most out of her or her horse and it’ll be sure to make you smile when you watch it, as well!
This is such a brilliant idea and supports our ethos of always putting connection first. This could be your whole session with your horse and would make it a great relationship-building day even if you don’t train, but maybe after this you might also feel calmer, more energised and ready to do some training after all…

Thank you Melissa! I watched it while was feeding the dogs – LOL. But, I did one yesterday, as I was just too tired to do anything else and it totally reset me and grounded me as well, plus it just was too much fun! Love that southern accent 😉 and wow! What a pretty forest of trees you have – very different from New Mexico!!!
