My name is Julia, I'm from Ukraine. My greatest passion in life is working with horses. Horses motivate me, inspire and give me strength, they give me purpose every single day.
I've been riding horses for 12 years. Two years ago I bought my first own horse. When someone asking me what I felt when we bought her..I can say, that our first 2 months together was a disaster and I was blaming myself for buying her. We were looking for a healthy, reliable, pretty-coated horse. I needed my own horse to turn my passion for western riding into reality. When we met Stella for the first time, she seemed to be very gentle, smart, calm and respectful filly. We’ve found a horse, who is 100% matched our needs. But then we took her to the new home.. 600km road trip and in Kyiv we unloaded a spooky, reactive and pushy thing. She was acting crazy all our first month together. I was a horse owner, my dream became a reality, but I wasn’t happy at all. Do you know how it feels, when you're scared of your own horse? Of your dream horse! Stella was pushing me, running away, she was spooky as hell and very, very reactive. I could hardly take her to the arena for lunging. One day Stella injured me. She spooked, ran, I got stuck with my hand in the leadrope and mare dragged me on the asphalt road. And then she ran away from the territory of the stable. That day I decided, that we need some help. We needed someone to help us build a lifelong partnership. Someone, who can help me become a better horsewomen and help Stella become a better horse. I discovered Clinton Anderson and his Method. His philosophy and easy to understand training technique helped me to turn my reactive and spooky horse into a safe and willing partner. I joined the club and met a lot of awesome people. I've never had such support. The Method not only helped me to conquer my fears and believe in myself and my horse, but it helped me to find a goal that makes me to jump out of my bed every morning. My dream is to be a clinician and I want to dedicate my life to helping people to enjoy their horses. I believe in the Method. I believe that it can help any horse and any person to build their partnership, stay safe and have fun. And one day I want to apply for the Clinician Academy. But now I need your help to make a big step towards my dream. I want to participate in 10-days Fundamentals clinic at the Downunder Horsemanship ranch and get a chance to add to my knowledge, to prepare myself for the Academy and to meet in person those people, who I'm grateful.
I’ve had so much hobbies in my life, but I’ve never had as much passion, dedication and ambition as I have now about Downunder Horsemanship, clinic and Academy. I work hard and believe in wonders. Because sometimes you need something more than all your effort and hard work, to make your dream come true. I need a wonder and I’m not going to give up anymore.
The cost breakdown of the clinic with a lease horse would be:
Lease Horse $2,750
It's not easy for me to ask for help, but without your support I literally wouldn’t be able to do it. I would be grateful if you could help me to achieve my dream.
