Friends of Kjrsos
If you are a friend of the horse, a friend of Kjrsos you might be wondering what you can do.
The more we learn of the intelligence and spirit and wisdom of the horse, the more we come to understand how much we never really knew. The more we learn the more responsibility that puts upon us, to try to do what we can not only for our horses but for other horses and riders around the world.
As a friend of Kjrsos, there is much you can do. Of course, you start with your own horse.
You participate online at Kjersos and commit to sharing knowledge, your own personal experiences, your images and video in the support of other riders and the development of knowledge in support of other horses.
If you are a teacher, you share what you learn with your riders, encouraging others to take on the Kjrsos commitment including the Kjrsos Oath and insist on your riders following the Kjrsos Principles.
Print your favourite article from Kjrsos magazine and leave it posted at your barn if you think it will help.
It can be difficult to challenge others, instead, they need to be inspired themselves to go into a new direction.
Your example can be that inspiration. If you need more, once we have a number of books published we encourage you to leave them lying around the barn an opportunity for another perspective for riders without confronting them, no one likes to feel like their knowledge, their own personal experiences and beliefs being criticized.
Become a Mentor. Our mentorship program provides one on one support for riders and instructors. A mentor, a friend, someone who can guide, advise, suggest and cheer you on every step of the way.
Become an Instructor - Work towards your Kjrsos instructor license. We need you. The horses need you. We need instructors who have the depth of knowledge on the intelligence, connection and the physical health of the horse that is the responsibility of every rider.
Volunteer. This is an overwhelming task. Developing and laying out the magazine. Creating over a hundred and fifty courses, over 1600 individual lessons and we are only just beginning. Teaching, training, researching, customer support, programming, graphics, video editing, the list of work and jobs are endless.
Support the work that we are currently involved in or future goals, with a monthly, annual or one time donation. Below is a short list of projects that you can donate to, or allow us to choose where we think your support could be best used at this point in time.
We stand for the horse. We stand with respect for life and all its wonders. We cannot have a closed view that we are here only for those who are taking the courses of Kjersos. We have to understand that we need to do more than that. That our responsibilities extend far further. We need to mentor, develop programs, develop material that reaches out. That tries to make a difference in the community in the consciousness that connects all of us.
We are here to support You & to welcome your support of Kjrsos
We are here to provide support.
If YOU Need A Friend/Patron - Contact Us
It is important to us to be here to help those who may not have the resources but have the heart, the desire, the willingness to find a new way to go with their horses. If you are interested in becoming an instructor, wanting to help others, help them find success and joy with their horses, realizing that there is a different way to work that is about protecting the horses, mind, body and spirit. We may not be able to help everyone, but we want to help where ever we can. If you have reached this page interested in checking out what the possible resources that are made available and under what circumstances, the answer is that it is best to write to us, tell us what you want. We don't need to hear why you need a patron, someone to support you, it is just enough to know that you are reaching out. If you have the drive, the initiative, the long term commitment and the work ethic to become an active contributing member of Kjrsos, willing to mentor others as you progress, contact us. Take what you learn and help the horses and/or people and other living entities that touch upon your life.
If You are Interested in Becoming A Patron/A Friend of Kjrsos
IF you like us see the need and want to help as many horses and riders as we can together throughout the world, we welcome your participation. You can be a part of this incredible endeavour in endless different ways. Contribute to the magazine, to the transformative courses being developed, contact us to volunteer or help financially.
One day we hope to offer a centre with trained horses that you can learn the feels that can only happen when you are on the back of a trained horse. A centre where the riders can learn to have a new relationship with their horses, where they can look at horses in a new light. A center where every individual is working together in creating extraordinary unique educational material, every lesson captured on film, new courses based on real-life experience. Imagine a place where discovery is the joyous endeavour every day. Perhaps we are trying to do too much. Perhaps our expectations are too high. But we are driven to do the best we can for the horses. For Kjrsos.
Even this current step of creating a comprehensive, transformative courses and instructor training program, this current task we have set ourselves is overwhelming. We know we can't do this by ourselves. The breadth of the work is staggering, with a decade of work already put into it. This is not a short-term venture. It is the work of a lifetime, of determined, dedicated individuals who are committed to the purpose of Kjrsos.
Contact us and we can discuss this further and answer any questions that you have. To contact us, register, login, and use our contact form.
So why are we asking for help?
We already offer a service, you may already be accessing our courses, programs, lessons or magazine. You are already supporting us. Thank You. Because we do charge for access to this training material, some may assume that this covers the cost of the work that we do. It definitely helps support the work that we do. Thank you for that support. Everything helps, contributes to what we can do next. But we have always required the support of volunteers, of staff that put in endless hours above and far beyond that anyone might consider reasonable. We constantly find ourselves limited for the work that we see needs to be done by financial constraints. This isn't a job, it is a passion. It is a cause.
