Building Confidence with HORSEMANSHIP and Reiki Blessed Crystals.

For many years I was a horsemanship practitioner. I am now retired from teaching. My approach was showcased many times in many different national magazines. My gift to you is you can read for FREE my published articles by clicking here. I specialised in confidence building for equines and people. I am also a reiki practitioner and found there is a blurred line between horsemanship and healing. Many issues such as confidence building, banishing anxiety, fear etc benefit from being approached holistically. Here I bring to you a package to help you and your horse. You can choose 2 Horsemanship Resource packs from the list below. These packs have been used successfully by my clients alongside tuition, and have been created so you can use them alongside support from a professional of your own choice. I will hand make and reiki bless for you a Meraki Necklace and for your horse a set of Meraki Rhythm Beads. The crystals bring wonderful natural benefits, enhanced by being Reiki blessed.

I am a Reiki practitioner and artist and all my work is done with Meraki. Meraki means my work is done spiritually with love, passion and soul. My Meraki Rhythm Beads and jewellery is made with love and semi-precious crystals and Reiki blessed. They have a natural healing, a beautiful energy with the benefits the crystals bring.

In the picture is an example of a set of Meraki Rhythm Beads made espcially for Dawn Heath's horse Chip. 

Here I will share with you some information to help you understand the benefits of using rhythm beads in horsemanship and for building confidence. And how to measure your horse for a set.   

Rhythm beads are designed to fit around the neck on the horse ideally on the groove down the front of shoulder where the neck meets the shoulders and chest. To measure your horse, either use a tape measure or a bit of string. Using a bit of string is best as it enables you to see where the rhythm beads will sit on your horse. Then you can measure the string. Some people like the beads to sit a bit higher other people like them to sit a bit lower. 

The rhythm beads I make are designed to softly jingle as the horse moves. This soft jingle helps both horse and human to relax, and in turn focus. So very helpful for  anxious, nervous horses and people.


Just like a metronome marks out rhythm for a dancer or musician so they can achieve harmony a set of rhythm beads mark out rhythm so helping horse and human to become more synchronized. The rhythm beads give feedback to both horse and human on increase and decrease of rhythm so greatly help in schooling.

My rhythm beads are made with semi-precious crystals which are Reiki blessed. They have natural healing, a beautiful energy with the benefits the crystals bring. I also make Meraki Reiki Blessed Jewellery for humans. You can even have jewellery made to match the rhythm beads for your horse. In the picture is an example of a of Meraki Necklace. 

The rhythm beads help give a gentle warning to wildlife of your approach when you are out and about. The wildlife will leave, so less to spook your horse. Great for building confidence when out and about. 

You can use them for riding and groundwork. Each set has a clip so you clip it onto some mane so they cannot slip down the horse’s neck.

They are very decorative and a great way to add some bling with benefits.

I have sets available to purchase on my website.

When I make a set of rhythm beads and necklace for building confidence I respond to the story you share with me. This is completely confidential.
