Starting Process

Our Instructors specialize in starting young “green” horses.

Our key element of our training philosophy are:

Non-violence – We never resort to pain or force to get results.

Communication – Using the horse’s own language and presenting things in a way he understands maximises trust and performance.

Trust – Trust is gained by being fair and consistent and communicating in a way the horse understands.

Choice – Always giving the horse a choice allows him to learn intrinsically, which is better and longer lasting.  We make it comfortable when the horse does what we want, and uncomfortable when he doesn’t.

Leadership – As a herd animal, the horse requires strong leadership.  Not providing that leadership is the cause of a lot of common problems people have with their horses.

In combination, the above concepts lead to horses which are attentive, respectful, willing, content and interested in their work.
