About True Grit Tour vARIANT

Russ Krachun Kozak Horsemanship True Grit Tour

Throughout the years, I discovered my own horsemanship education by using my own philosophy and my own methodology that made sense to both the horse and the human.  My methods involve building muscle memory with increased timing and repetitions and also by improving the mental and physical abilities of the horse.  By following this education, I have found that these methods work for any discipline, any breed of the horse and any level of the horseman.

The meaning of “True Grit” is to stick to your goals no matter how hard or how many problems or setbacks that you might face.  It is through my own dedication and hard work that I have become successful in designing the “True Grit” equine educational programs.

The “True Grit” equine educational tour is three complete horsemanship programs that begin at the “Foundation” program, next the “Intercommunication” program and lead to the “Evolution” advanced horsemanship program.

Students of the “True Grit” equine educational tour are educated using the “Foundation”, “Intercommunication” and “Evolution” philosophies and methodologies, and can also take these methods to more advanced levels in their horsemanship.

Custom signature equipment is engineered and designed to connect directly to the complete “True Grit” educational programs in order to communicate clear and concise communication to the horse.

The “True Grit” equine educational tour involves working directly with participants in a human to human interactive program where students learn to improve their coordination and reactive responses, they learn to think and also improve their own mental and physical abilities.   These students work in a team environment by working together to improve and reach each other’s horsemanship skills and goals.   This human to human interactive program helps to prepare the students to communicate with their horses and also enables them to better communicate and work together as humans.

Students not only work with their own horses, but each other’s horses with different personalities, they learn that by using the same methodology, they will reach the same results and become more experienced horseman and horsewomen.

The three equine educational programs in the “True Grit” equine educational tour are designed to connect to the next one in sequence using Kozak horsemanship philosophy and methodology.

The “Foundation” program is where the real magic begins.

Level One – “Discover Horsemanship Philosophy & Methodology in the Round Pen” by Russ Krachun.

The horse and the human ultimately learn to communicate with each other through trust, confidence and mutual understanding by using step by step methodology.

Level Two – “In-Hand Communication”

The horseman learns to use consistent body language and consistent voice cues; also the horse learns to respond to the horseman by learning through consistency.  The “In-hand communication” program develops coordination, balance and improves physical and mental abilities in both the horse and the horseman.

Level Three – “Develop Confidence, Trust and Solid Minds”

The horseman develops confidence in the horse by educating the horse to control emotions and fear, also by using this same methodology the horseman also learns to control his own emotions and his fear while educating the horse.

The meaning of the word intercommunication is the action of engaging in two-way communication.

Level One – “Innovative Bridle Work Methodology”

The horseman will begin by learning and understanding innovative bridle work methodology.

The horseman will then educate the horse innovative bridle work methodology.  This methodology will educate and prepare both the horse and the horseman for complete understanding in the future with riding methodology.

 Level Two – “Round Pen Riding Methodology”

In “Round Pen Methodology” the horse and the horseman learn the foundation of the riding methodology in order to further develop the two-way communication and also develop confidence between both the horse and the horseman while under saddle.  This methodology will help to develop muscle memory and improve the horse’s physical abilities and the horseman’s riding skills.

Level Three – “Foundation Guiding Methodology”

The horseman and the horse will learn foundation guiding methodology

Level Four – “Confidence on the Trail”

In this level all of the previous education and methodologies will be used from both the “Foundation” and the “Intercommunication” programs and are combined to develop confidence in both the horse and the horseman while on the trail both independently and also while riding in groups.

This program connects all of the methodology previously educated from the “Foundation” program together with the “Intercommunication” program under saddle.  The education in the “Evolution” program results in confident, willing and resistant free communication between the horse and the horseman while under saddle.

Students will learn riding methodology including the proper use of timing, repetition, increasing timing in each repetition and the use of timing for relaxation between each method.  The student will educate the horse to become balanced, improve coordination and develop muscle memory in each method and also improve and develop the horse’s mental and physical abilities.

Level One –

Muscle Memory and Softness in the Neck and Poll

Muscle Memory, Coordination and Balance in the Hind Quarters

Muscle Memory, Coordination and Balance in the Shoulders

Muscle Memory, Coordination and Balance in the Rib Cage

 Level Two – Coordination and Balance in both Horse and Rider at Various Gaits

Level Three – Lead Coordination and Balance at Various Speeds

Level Four – Guiding Methodology

Level Five – Stop and Back-Up Methodology

Level Six – Speed Control Methodology

Level Seven – Side Pass Methodology

Level Eight – Lead and Lead Changes Methodology

Level Nine – Pirouette Methodology
