“At the weekend, I went to see a demonstration by John Jones, the Horse Listener, in aid of Equine Market Watch. John is a recommended associate of the Intelligent Horsemanship Association. I was absolutely mesmerized. John’s approach was so gentle and yet so effective – there was nothing that jarred or jerked at all. All of the horses were from the EMW sanctuary. The first one Solo – a big chestnut horse with rather nice confirmation – had been tied to the back of a car to make him go forward. By directing the horse and drawing him to him, John was able to dispel the horse’s fear and in no time had his head lowered and then really low stepping around him willingly by his side. Later he worked with an untouched colt and then a remedial pony mare both of which weren’t keen to be close to humans at all. Within a short while he was able to touch the colt all over, including his feet and later he had the mare moving towards him. At no time did either pony run frantically around the pen or look distressed. Wonderful. I can’t hop to convey the feeling of the audience or relay how John described what he was doing. For anyone who has not seen him in action, I would thoroughly recommend attending one of his demos.” SW

  • “inspirational” MB
  • “Watching John work with horses is a pleasure, a breath of fresh air and hypnotic… be prepared to be amazed Equine Market Watch”
  • “Anyone who has not seen John (& Daisy) in action should try to get to this event. He has just been out to see my horse Murphy and it went so well I nearly cried at the end of the session! He makes so much sense and leaves you full of confidence that whatever you are struggling with you will achieve SH”
  • “I had a brilliant time at John’s yard with my horse and it really helped me build a better relationship we now trust each other – brilliant!” MW
  • “I had a great weekend at Old Shawls Farm, I learnt so much and got a real boost SF”
  • “I had a lovely day at John’s Demo Day a great opportunity to see a very patient, committed and equine empathetic John Jones today. Thanks so much John and the dedicated Equine Market Watch (who provided the horses and ponies for the demo) it is very beautiful part of the country too.”
  • “I was impressed at a recent John Jones demo that what I saw was a real horseman at work, and not a show put on to impress the audience.
  • He was soo patient and slow; it was a very good reminder of the fundamental principals of what is required when working with the more traumatised horse. Excellent!” CW
  • “A rare talent” BW
