Natural Horsemanship is a method of equine communication that creates a relationship with our horse based on mutual love, trust and respect. It produces profound results whether you've been riding your whole life or have never ridden at all. It builds trust and respect between you and your horse as partners with your horse looking to you as his leader. It's an empowering method for English or Western. Dressage, Trail Riding, Reining, Jumping or any discipline one chooses.
