When my husband and I came to AR, in June of 2013, I found myself looking for a place to board my horse Little Man. Little Man had a very rough beginnings. Because of that I wanted to make sure that he was in the best place possible for him. I interviewed with five different facilities about their board and train options. Jewel Cousins was my last stop. I left her ranch the day we interviewed with the sense of a perfect fit. It was evident in the way she spoke about her horses and listen to me speak about mine; she truly cared about their well-being both the physically and mentally. You can see that same love and caring in the way that she trains using the natural horsemanship techniques. I only meant for Little Man to be with her for a few months, it is now May of 2016 and we're so sad to be leaving. In those three years we took advantage of Jewels natural horsemanship training anytime we have the opportunity. I am so glad that he and I had the time that we had at Jewel Cousins Ranch. He grew in to an amazingly confident and responsive horse under her gentle care and guidance. I have no doubt that without her he would not be the horse that he is and I would not be the handler that I am.
I met Jewel Cousins in 2010 through the Parelli Natural Horsemanship member locator website. Jewel was new to the Area and wanted to find friends in the area that followed the Parelli program. Parelli Natural Horsemanship is a program that teaches people how understand horses and how they learn. By understanding how horses learn we can teach our horse to want to do what we ask without force. Jewel has embraced this program completely. She has taken several classes from Parelli instructors around the area and even has traveled to Parelli's main campus in Colorado.
In the summer of 2012 I needed to move two of my horses and I was having no luck getting them to load in the trailer. I asked Jewel to assist me in getting them loaded. Jewel committed to help me on the condition that she was going to do it the right (Parelli) way, with no force no matter how long it took. We could only work on loading the horses once a week, and it took several weeks but in the end both horses loaded into the trailer confidently when asked to and stood calmly. We closed the doors and drove around the field to see how they would react. We opened the doors and both horses were standing calmly looking at us.
I have the occasion to visit Jewel often. I love to watch her with her play with her horses off line. It is wonderful to watch her horses happily and confidently respond to her requests. It is obvious how much Jewel loves her horses and how much her horses love her.
