The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 14 | Josh Nichol

 

It’s not often that I get to completely geek out with another horse person. But, in this podcast episode, horse trainer Josh Nichol of a Horseman’s Pursuit and I get right into things, diving into personal development and how it relates to horses, dominance vs relational horsemanship, practices to build neutrality and connection, humility, the power of grace and more. So good!

In Josh’s words: “I like to think of myself as a professional student of the horse; learning is what I do first and teaching is second. Mentoring people, building relationships and watching growth is truly my passion. I currently teach clinics throughout Canada in the summer and work out of our home ranch in the winter, helping people develop their relationships through horsemanship.

This style of horsemanship is very relational, it allows you to see yourself through your horse and continues as you advance through the process. Mastery in horsemanship begins with a commitment to bettering ourselves! This starts with taking ownership and responsibility for our part of the story, thus interpreting the horse’s actions and performance differently.  When we are aware of – and work on developing – our side of the relationship, we truly facilitate not only growth in our horses, but growth in ourselves.  Good horsemanship challenges everything about our inner person. What an amazing gift: progressing in our horsemanship goes hand in hand with developing our best self!”
