Natural Horsemanship Training

Improving Your Horsemanship

If you're looking to improve your horsemanship why not come along to one of our natural horsemanship training days?  You can learn more about horses and join others on a great horsemanship journey.

You can bring your own horse or just come along to watch.  We offer sessions for individuals and groups from one hour to week-long residential courses. 

Prices start at just 35 per hour for individual tuition or 100 for full day courses.

Helping Horses with Problems!
 
There's no need to struggle alone. 
Contact us for details of how we can help you and your horse.
 
If you can't get your horse to us, then we can come to you instead!
 
Horses stay on site with daily work to help them cope with life with humans.
 
We can also help with semi-feral ponies, handling feet, halter training, leading and loading.

Learn about Horse Behaviour

Learning about horse behaviour is one of the keys to understanding your horse.  To be a great horseman or horsewoman means being able to listen to what the horse is telling you with his body language.  There are those, like Monty Roberts, who talk about horse whispering - but it's really much more about horse listening!

Round Pen Training at Liberty

Working in an enclosed area like a Round Pen will enable you think like your horse and help him to understand that in this relationship, it is you who will be the leader!  Linda found that she could communicate really well with her horse, Red.  They are so in tune with each other in this picture that they are in time with each other's stride.
