Janet Fram of Vermont has graciously provided pictures of her Icelandic Horse mare, Lokkadis, going thru the Level 1 tasks.
On the IceHorses Email Discussion List Judy suggested that perhaps USIHC awards should be
given to different types of excellence with horses. One that she mentioned was
to someone like Janet Fram, who is working on Parelli Level 3 with her mare
Lokkadis. The following is Janet's reply:
"I read this aloud to my husband about the USIHC, and he had an immediate
response. This is a unique program for the benefit of the horse and is about
improving your relationship with your horse through love, understanding and
communication. Borge feels that this effort on the part of the people involved
should be acknowledged. We are not involved in this program for the sake of
Pat Parelli or to win recognition from other people but to improve our
understanding and communication skills with our horses.
We have owned
Icelandic Horses for 26 years now. This is the first program that with
Icelandic Horses that actually works and has given us a better relationship with
our horse companions. The horse is the only judge of our successes in this
program. We think that the USIHC should give awards in order to encourage many
more Icelandic Horse owners to improve their relationship and communication
with their horses."
