Natural Horsemanship

Both horses and people will tell you that this is where all the fun stuff happens! That's because this is where the greatest connection happens.

WHAT IS NATURAL HORSEMANSHIP?

Natural Horsemanship is a philosophy that can be applied to any discipline of horsemanship. It's based on the understanding of horse behavior, a true shared language, and using psychology to motive instead of force.

The more you let go of the need to physically control a horse, and allow the horse to make their own choices as they learn, the more "behavior building" you actually get done.  The horse becomes an active participant as they complete tasks and achieve goals through their own understanding and willingness to do so. 

In traditional horsemanship, riders work to train a horse to be submissive, so that they can easily shape and guide their horse's body while the horse is passive.  The magic of Natural Horsemanship is that when you don't trap and force a horse, they give you their heart and soul. Once that happens, the possibilities are endless.

NATURAL HORSEMANSHIP & CLASSICAL DRESSAGE

Natural Horsemanship is BEST when you pair it with Classical Dressage, so that you learn to help your horse move in a healthy, athletic way. Behavior & "Learning Psychology" develops their minds, but healthy posture develops their bodies. This will keep them physically sound for a long, happy life.
