We all dream of the perfect day with our horse... It's a beautiful warm morning. You walk out to the paddock, your horse looks at you and whinnys to greets you. You arrange their breakfast, and them sit in silence listening to them eating, and enjoy being in the moment.

A little later it's time to ride. Your horse walks up to be haltered, and stands perfect still while you saddle him. He sidepasses himself to the mounting block, and stands still after you mount. You ask him to turn away from home, and he confidently leaves his friends, happy to be going on a wonderful adventure with you.
As you ride through the trees, you enjoy these wonderful moments of connection between you & your horse. Slowly the deserted beach appears in front of you. You are in perfect connection with your horse.

But to achieve this type of connection, the approach we use to train our horses is critically important.

As horse owners, we understand the only way to develop that dream relationship, is to put the horse first in everything that we do together. We strive for a willing relationship, and not a partnership based on fear or force.

  • We understand that our greatest judge is our horse.
  • We say 'no' to gadgets and force.
  • We are open minded, curious & consistent.
  • We don’t use shortcuts, quick fixes, draw reins, tie our horses heads down or their mouths shut.
  • We understand collection is not a head position.
  • We know that groundwork builds relaxation and partnership.
  • We recognise the try, no matter how slight.
  • We allow our horses time to evolve at their own pace.
  • We put our horse’s health first.

We all want to do the best for our horses, but sometimes we can struggle with 'how to get there'...
