Help! I cannot access my programs inside the Membership Site. What can I do?
If you are able to login but only see your programs as greyed-out icons, the first step is to try a different browser and clear your browser’s cache and cookies. We recommend using Firefox or Chrome. If you clear your browser’s cache/cookies – make sure to ONLY clear your cache and cookies, not passwords or browser history – and are still having trouble, contact us immediately so we can find the glitch. Make sure to let us know the full name and email address used to open you account, and what programs you should have access to.
Some of the series icons in my membership site dashboard are greyed. How do I get access to these programs?
Thanks for asking! If you are a monthly membership customer and you see a greyed-out icon, it means your Level does not include those series. In order to gain access, you either need to sign up for Level 2, 2.5, or 3 membership, or you need to upgrade from a Level 1 membership. If you are purchasing series individually, a greyed-out icon means that you have not purchased the greyed-out series yet. *If you have paid for the series you do not have access to, contact us ASAP so that may investigate the possible glitch on our end.

I just signed up for Level 2. Where do I start?
Welcome! We are so excited to work with you to expand your relational horsemanship potential! We recommend you start with the Leadership Series and then go on to the Activate Your Learning Series.

The Fitting and Understanding Headstalls Series might be a good place to start.

Who is Josh Nichol?
Josh Nichol is a world renowned horse trainer and teacher based out of Canada. He focuses on Relational Horsemanship, a style of horsemanship that allows you to see yourself through your horse and continues as you advance through the process. Mastery in horsemanship begins with a commitment to bettering ourselves! This starts with taking ownership and responsibility for our part of the story, thus interpreting the horse’s actions and performance differently. When we are aware of – and work on developing – our side of the relationship, we truly facilitate not only growth in our horses, but growth in ourselves. Good horsemanship challenges everything about our inner person.
What exactly is included in the Level 3 program with Josh? How is it different than Level 2?
Thanks for asking! The Level 3 membership includes weekly live and recorded webinars with Josh. During live webinars, you can ask Josh questions and work on your horsemanship. You will also have access to two 1-1 private sessions with Josh that are scheduled using his calendar link at at time that works for you. The difference is that Level 2 does not include the private 1-1 sessions and extra email support. As soon as you become a Level 2 or 3 member, you will have access to the archives of the past webinars so that you can review the material at any time.
What do I do if the training video won't play or stops in the middle?
You might try using a different browser. We recommend using Firefox or Chrome. Another possibility is that your device or video watching software on your device (like Adobe Flash) might be due for an update. Also, make sure to clear your browser’s cache and cookies and then restart your browser.
