Natural Horsemanship

 

Like therapeutic riding, the practice of natural horsemanship has existed for many years and is currently gaining popularity all over the world.  By using natural, equine based non-verbal communication and applied behavioral psychology, natural horsemanship seeks to create a willing partnership between the horse and human (both on the ground and when mounted) that promotes safety, relaxation, sensitivity, teamwork and mutual satisfaction.
Our riders are like our horses. They don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care!
