We define natural horsemanship as “the care, training and riding of horses in harmony with their natural behaviour, diet, movement and physical being.”

Our natural horsemanship programme teaches the following key principles:

  • Horse psychology and social systems (ethology)
  • Herd behaviour and habitats
  • Natural breeding and weaning practices
  • The importance of a natural and balanced diet
  • Good hoof care. Our horses are all barefoot trimmed (no metal horse shoes)
  • Appropriate veterinary treatment
  • Training/educating the horse in a compassionate, respectful way
  • Learning to listen to the horse, and riding to ensure mutual enjoyment
If you want to understand how horses really work, how they communicate, how they emote, their expressions and how to ride in true harmony, please get in contact.
