Holistic Horsemanship

Holistic Horsemanship is a means of developing a partnership through relaxation and positivity.

My approach does not involve force or fear, the focus is finding root causes for behavioral issues and supporting you both to find enjoyment in your partnership.

Common Behavioural Problems

  • Difficult to catch
  • Difficult to load
  • Problems with haltering & other tack
  • Napping
  • Rearing
  • Bucking
  • Bolting
  • Rushing
  • Spooking

Methods of Working

We will look at the whole picture and life of the horse to determine the trigger points, cause and effect and anxieties which provoke the behaviour(s). Combining science-based learning with animal communication techniques, we will develop a plan to support both you and your horse.

Suggestions may include training, diet, management, involving other health professionals and a combination of all four. It is important that clients are open to receiving feedback and willing to make positive changes for the horse’s benefit.

Start to Plan

Before we can begin I’ll need to assess your horse physically and mentally and listen to you and what you want to achieve. Once I have assessed the whole care, horse and rider situation I can put together a plan tailored to you and you can develop groundwork techniques and horsemanship skills to support your goals.

Follow Up

Every assessment includes a follow up phone call to support your progress and answer any questions that may arise after the session.
