What’s the format of the program?
When you join, you will get a grateful kiss from your horse (who doesn’t love a horse smooch?!) plus instant access to all the 320 polework exercises in 12 Months of Polework™ & access to the Facebook community. All these exercises are downloadable to your iPad, iPhone, Android, tablet, laptop, Mac or computer. We also include printer friendly editions that are SUPER easy to print at home.
Are there REALLY exercises for every month of the year?
You bet there are! We have created 12 months of themed polework exercises, (that's over 320 exercises, my friend) including New Years, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day (one of my favourites as I am Irish!), Easter, May Day, Spring, 4th of July, Summer, Back to School, Fall & Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas. So you will have fun polework exercises all year round!
I bought these exercises, how do I log in & download them?
When you purchase you will get an email with all your login details. If it hasn't arrived please check your spam & promotions folder as sometimes your email gets hidden in there (ugh, technology I know!). If it's not there, please email our team and we'll be happy to get you all set up :) Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I buy a hard copy version of these 320+ exercises?
I get it :) Sometimes you just want a book to hold in your hand & refer to! In order to get these exercises to you as fast as possible (you know there are crazy delays with the postal right now?), all of these exercises are SUPER easy to download & we include print ready editions, that you can print out yourself at home.
What age does my horse & I need to be?
As this course includes riding exercises, this course is only suitable for horses over 4 years of age. We do not promote riding horses 3 years or age or younger, as their bodies are not fully mature until at least 5.5 years of age - and older than that too. You must be over 18 years of age to purchase or use any of our products, courses or any items or online training solutions.
Is this for English or Western riders?
These exercises are for both English & Western riders. It doesn't matter the style of your saddle or what type hat you wear. All that matters is that you love spending time with your horse & want to create an inspiring partnership together.
It's winter where I live and it's freezing. Can I start this course now or should I wait?
We get snow here in Ireland in the winter, so I totally understand! For me, I like to use the bad weather in the winter to concentrate more on building connection
with my horses. That way I can keep working with my horses, even during the winter.
And I don't feel bad we've done nothing in months due to hard ground or snow. All of these lessons in this program are designed to be short. Think 10-15 minute sessions.
And all of these you can in walk. And they can really help your horse.
For me, these exercises are a way to stay connected to my horse over the winter. Then once the spring arrives, we can get back to a lot more riding & fun activities in the fine weather. You also get 4 years access to this program, so once you purchase it you can work through it as slowly or quickly as suits you.
No you don't :) All you need is somewhere safe to ride your horse.
How many poles do I need?
We have many exercises that need only 4 poles and we have more advanced exercises that need 8-12 poles. You can use any length poles, but most people use poles between 3 and 3.5 metres in length
I got my poles at our local tack shop in Ireland. So I'd recommend you ask your local tack shop, or check with a local hardware store. Or you can google 'showjumping poles'.
How long does each session with my horse need to be?
We believe in quality, not quantity. And luckily, so do our horses! So if you can spend 1 or 2 fifteen minute polework sessions with your horse each week - that sounds perfect. Plus with our thoughtfully designed ‘small chunk’ exercises, you’ll always be able to have fun with your horse!
Are these exercises suited for both horses & ponies?
Yes! The all types of horses & ponies love polework as they get to express themselves & have fun while spending time with you!
My horse sometimes demonstrates behaviour that is a major safety concern - such as rearing, biting, bucking, bolting, etc. It this course suitable for me?
No, this course does not address or fix major behavioural problems. We would advise you to contact your vet as a lot of these types of issues begin with pain the horse has.
If I purchase now, can I watch the exercises later when I have more time?
Absolutely! I know it’s a crazy time in the world right now, so that’s why you get unlimited 24/7 access to all the course modules and bonuses, on all your smartphones, laptops & ipads, for 3 years from the date of purchase.
What technology do you need?
This program is 100% online! You will need a computer or smartphone/tablet connected to the internet.
Does this program including 1-1 coaching support?
This program is a self-study program. This program does not include coaching support. You can learn more about our other programs at www.greyponyfilms.com
Hey Elaine, is this a one time charge?
Yes! This is a one-time payment only. There is no ongoing subscription. So you don't need to worry. All you need to do is share the great news with your horse & look forward to having lots of fun together :)
What currency are the prices in?
All our prices are in USD dollars. I know that takes a bit of head scratching if you live in Europe or Australia, but I’ve found this handy website
that makes it easy to convert the numbers into your local currency :)
Is this a one time charge?
Yes, you bet it is :) This is a 1 time payment.
If you live in Europe, then the grey suits in Brussels have said that all online businesses have to charge Europeans VAT. I’m sorry about that. Trust me, horses are a lot simpler to figure out, than keeping up with all this VAT stuff!
Do you have a refund policy?
You bet we do! If you purchase these polework exercises, and don’t get all the polework exercises you need to to improve your horse's suppleness, balance, rhythm, strength and flexibility using 100% kind methods in the first 14 days, just send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to give you your money back.
What if I’m still not sure?
If you've still got Qs, here is what I recommend. You can email me firstname.lastname@example.org and ask me any questions you have. I’m happy to help.
