Meet Jock and Ivi when they taught the first ET course here in the states.. Was able to tag along and learn more while they stayed in PA... Smiles when I think of them both.. This was before Ivi's english was fluent and he would have her say words that came out sounding like a 4 letter words.. Such a gentleman I enjoyed his stories and wise views of the world... Thank you both xxxooo

A super-nice person to be around; a genuine horse lover; a gifted/famous one who doesn't keep you at a distance ... We didn't spend that much time together, but it was enough to grow affection.
I'm sure you're doing great, and hope to see you again. Ciao !

I was looking through books of mine and found my workbook from workshop 1-4 and was remembering both Jock and Ivana. I told Jock that I was privileged to have been taught by the best. and humbly, Jock said that he wasn't the best. But I beg to differ. That was back in 1990's in a Pennsylvania countryside we had that class. Good memories. Thanks again for your wonderful contribution to a healthier, happier life for all who choose to have such. My sincere gratitude!!

I celebrate your life and passion every time i do a 'move' on my horses.

Cheers to you in heaven! I hope you find my heart horses in the green fields there and dance with them.

How time flies, it doesn't seem like a year has gone by.

Jock, there has been such a void since you left us, which is difficult to fill. You were such a special character, and one who cheered us up when we were down.

We all hope that you are with Ivana every day, helping her get to grips with things, and keeping us all in line.

God Bless you for giving us all such a wonderful gift, and for Ivana carrying on the work you started.

I am sure you are in everyone's thoughts more often than you realise.

Jock and Ivana, I know today is a special time for remembrance but you can be sure that throughout the rest of the year family members, friends and herds of grateful equines the world over are remembering you in their thoughts and prayers. Not a single day goes by that I dont think of you both. Jock, your words of wisdom will always be my guide.

Jock, You were an inspiration to all of us. I will always treasure the gift of ET you and Ivana shared with us "kids", and the many memories of laughter and fun you brought with your gift of ET. From Minnesota , to Texas to Monte Roberts in California where I saw you for the last time, you have touched many hearts and lives, and will always be remembered. To Ivana, may Jocks love and strength surround you each and every day.

Jock didn't write his name on the sand for the waves to wash it away.

Nor did he write his name in the sky for the wind to blow it away.

Jock wrote his name in the hearts of the people and animals he touched.

That’s where it will stay.

Love you Jock wherever you are

Dear Jock,

I'm just hearing about your transition and and surprised and saddened. Thank you so much for all you taught me and for your encouragement with Bowen Technique back before the horse courses. You recognized my skill even before I had it and I'm always grateful for your encouragement of my Bowen practice building. Bless you, Linda

Jock, what can we say. You were only in our lives for a very short time, but we miss you immensely. Seeing you standing on the terrace, watching your beloved Ivana working on the grounds, was a sight to behold (and give cheek about) but we miss that sight. I miss your cheeky phone calls calling me "daughter" - ha ha, only a few years difference. Your soulmate really misses you, it has been really hard for her to carry on without you, but she is doing pretty well. Good days and bad days for Ivana. We will always remember you, Jocko, and will treasure the brief time we were in your life and the wonderful stories you shared with us each and every day (even though at first I thought you were full of rubbish) - something I found was not true. Rest in peace Jock, Kevin really misses your presence in our area, and we both will miss you more than we can say. A funny thing, considering our brief relationship. Farewell, dear Jock, the pain has now gone. Love Bev and Kevin. xxx

Dear Jock, Where does one start after 47years of friendship.
Since your passing Jock there has not been a day go by that we do not reflect on our time spent together. Our friendship started back in your wrestling days but after retirement from the ring our friendship continued to grow and in more recent years came to include your beautiful wife Ivana. Jock, you were one of a kind. Over the years you have touched the hearts of many and will be truly missed by those fortunate to have had contact with you. Although no longer with us in person we know your spirit will always remain. Say hi to Bob & Al from us both. We can see you all sitting on a big white fluffy cloud Bourbon in one hand and a cigar in the other keeping an eye on all below.
Until we meet again buddy.
Yours in friendship
Love Bryan & Bev

Drahá Ivanko, upřímnou soustrast.Zrovna jsem se dověděla s bolestí v srdci, že nás Jock opustil. Podstoupila jsem s Vámi v Česku obě nezapomenulelné školení a předali jste mě něco co dokáže člověk jen s velkým darem. Pořád na Vás vzpomínám. Tobě přeji velkou sílu zdolat ztrátu milovaného člověka a Jockovi můžeme jen přád klid duše a krásné koňácké nebe. S láskou Dáša z ČR.

Such are the great memories I have of time spent with you and Ivana, especially at the farm at Millbrook for the amazing four days of certifying the first victorian practitioners. So many annecdotes, so much laughter, Jocko, so much port! You leave this earth a much better place and those who you touched much better for having known you

Jock, I did not have the privilege of meeting you in person. However, each time I put my hands on a horse, each time I quietly observe and listen to what they are say so eloquently, I feel I do know you. I am honoured to have met you through being taught Equine Touch by Jane, Janis and Ivana. To be able to share your gift with the equines and canines that cross my path is something I will forever cherish. Thankyou Jock. Thankyou Ivana.

You changed my life and the way I looked at bodyworks. I still use your techniques on my daughter everynight and I just came home from working on ahorse when I heard the bad news. You were a remarkable man. One of a kind.

There are no words to describe you adequately, and no adequate description of what and how much you gave to so many.
Your legacy will continue in Zimbabwe and the rest of Africa as long as I can use my hands and teach with your passion and patience. I am so proud and privileged to have been able to call you friend! Hamba Gashe Jock.

Thank you Jock for the energy, the passion and the power of the moves you created, developed and brought to the world. I am sure you were met by a stampede of horses up there, all wanting to thank you for the benefits you have bought to their species - perhaps they were after a bit of ET as well! You will be much missed but your legacy is phenomenal. Keep guiding your whole ET family, and rest in peace knowing how much happiness you bought to so many people's lives.

Thanks Jock for opening my eyes to the fact that not all training issues are mental. If you have pain in the body you can end up with training Issues. Get rid of the pain and the training issue goes away. What a great system you developed to help horses in pain. Thanks for making a better world for horses and humans!! My Heart goes out to you Ivana for the loss of your beloved friend and partner.You will be in our prayers.

Butch and I send our love to Ivie, we have all lost a very wonderful and caring man. I learned how to look at horse's with more than just the eye of a veterinarian from Jock. Many, many horses were helped by this insightful man. His legacy will live on forever, with Eqine Touch students helping heal horses all over the world. I will miss Jock very much. He brought light and laughter to all that he touched.

Jock used to come to HorseWorld to complete ET training courses each year. I was always struck by his personal charisma and charm. He had a remarkable affinity with horses and was able to convey some of that to his students. He became a firm friend of HorseWorld over the last 12 years and we shall miss him.
Jerry Watkins (friend)

Jock used to challenge us (his students) in his ET trainings to define "integrity". I believe that he was a model of integrity and am one of the many fortunate people with whom he shared his art and skill for making the world a better place for horses and their owners.
Trish Phelps (student of ET)

I met you & Ivana once at a level 1 course in Northern California. I was fortunate enough to bring my horse with me and was blessed that you worked on him as part of the class. It's the only time he'd been completely sound in the past 10 years. You were truly a jewel for the horses and will be missed by all.
My prayers and good thoughts are with Ivana and your family.

I thank you for all the many ways you took care of my family; working on us, helping us with sleep problems, smoking, you name it. I'm happy I can hear your voice lull me to sleep whenever I want!

Thank you Jock for teaching me and thank you for helping the horses. It was such a shock to hear the news - I really thought you would pull through. But I know you have left such an amazing and beautiful legacy. Thank you again for being a teacher, friend and mentor, and for being you and bringing your gift to the world. Thinking of you Ivana. x

You changed my life and taught me so much. From a young Equine Touch student we shared a bond of fellow met officers. As you taught me to grow from a student to a practitoner to an Instrustor you also taught me to grow in confidence in myself.
You are a true angel who will be missed down here but treasured up there.

Whilst I was your student you gave me magic in my hands, whilst a practitioner and an instructor you gave me confidence to offer, and share, that magic. Whilst I was your coordinator you gave me many headaches but whilst you have been my friend you gave me love and allowed me to share the dream with you and your dear Ivana. Always remembered. x

You changed my life for ever in the summer of 2006. You have been in my mind almost daily ever since. Thank you for your inspiration and wise words. You have meant so much for so many horses and humans, and you will always be remembered.

It has been a real privilege to have known Jock and to be part of his amazing modalities. Whilst he may not be there in body to subject us to the infamous "slaughter alley" he will always be in my heart and ever present when I continue to use ET and VHT. Sent with a special warm hug to you Ivana at this sad time. Liz Coates
