Natural Horsemanship - building strong relationships based on trust

Natural horsemanship focuses on working with the horse's natural behavior, instincts and personality in a clear and kind manner.

There are many well-known trainers who practice these methods including: Alexandra Kurland - Clicker Training, Mark Rashid, Brent Graef, Linda Tellington-Jones, Monty Roberts, and Tom Dorrance. Each one of these trainers has their own style and share their knowledge through books and dvds - click on their name to view more information.

Available to everyone - you can learn how to effectively and kindly work with your horse using these methods.

Studies of horses in the wild has given the foundation on which this is based. Body language is used to communicate to the horse and by learning to listen to the horse by watching for subtle moves that indicate understanding, a two-way conversation can be achieved.

Sparky loves clicker training and has developed a much stronger bond through positive reinforcement. This is his favorite game - standing on the pedestal.

It is a truly beautiful sight to see horse and human working as one with trust and respect. That is the essence of true horse-man-ship.
