  • The aim is to be more at one with your horse and learn to achieve your goals without force.

These unique courses are predominantly using ground skills with the horses, using techniques and concepts that you can then take into your ridden work towards the end of the course.

Our aim is to work as light as possible with the horses in a relaxed environment; we encourage discussions and questions throughout the course.

“If I want the horse to listen to me then I must listen to the horse”
