Holistic Horsemanship means working with the horse on a whole; incorporating the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the horse into training. This is about being conscious of the horse’s needs, wants and capacity, as well as our own and working WITH rather than against it. Working with the horse in this way opens up a whole new world of possibility for true connection and partnership, whilst also being pain, fear and injury free for both horse and person. Working with the whole horse is completely force-free, having respect for the horse as a unique individual thereby allowing the horse to become a confident, relaxed, happy and above all willing partner. True horsemanship is gentle, responsive and based on mutual trust and respect.
