Owner Horsemanship

Ownership is so much more than just riding a horse. Many people spend hours and much money fine tuning their riding skills but true horsemanship goes so much deeper. To partner with the horse it takes understanding horse psychology and herd behavior, being able to read and tune into their communication, see the world through their eyes, become more aware of your own leadership skills and be willing to look at opportunities of improvement.

This program is based upon natural/working horsemanship, is 100% hands on and will cover all learning in need-to-know of owning your own horse / building an even better relationship with your current horse. Behind everything I teach is two important principles; Safety and Respect – a critical two-way street between horse and human. Owner Horsemanship Members (open to men & women) will learn and partake in the following (plus much much more);
