Natural Horsemanship

Natural Horsemanship is about respecting the nature and spirit of the horse and developing a deep knowledge of horse psychology and behaviour so that we can work with it, not against it.

We never use pain or punishment as a training aid. We never "make" a horse do anything through the use of coercion - always through cooperation.

Working with a horse that is relaxed and comfortable ensures feedback that is clean, clear and consistent.

Natural Horsemanship has played an important role in how Equest has evolved what we do and the way we do it.

Horses are great teachers but only if we allow them to be the teachers they naturally are.
