Horsemanship with SCIENCE, EMPATHY & FEEL
USING: A Welfare Protocol and Training Techniques
This means we go through a process of elimination before using a training technique. To ensure we never use training to overcome a root cause for behavioural issues, that has a mental or physical health cause. E.g. We check for pain, pathology or potential improvements in the horses daily life and care. We do the same for the person involved too. Learning should come from a clean slate. If necessary, we consult on a management plan to install improvements or healing.
Emotional Horsemanship has a variety of training techniques available for you to learn which are entirely unique to this method. Developed over the last ten years according to science, empathy and feel from deep inter-disciplinary research and on the ground experience with thousands of horses . Continually in development, please expect more techniques to become available in the future. Some other techniques available to learn are standard, or common training techniques but they have been filtered through a lens of science, empathy and feel to improve the horses learning experience and performance, and your enjoyment and safety!

I am a horse trainer, equestrian performance coach, international clinician and hoof care provider living in Spain.
I am Australian by birth, and spent all my adult life in Europe. My previous career as a professional dancer gave me a powerful empathetic insight into the lives that many horses live as;
-Creatures of movement
-Without a voice
-Forced to perform under stress, duress and pain
-The importance of movement expression
-The connection between movement and emotion
-How important our feet are to our physiological and emotional well being
My professional certification in Horse Training, Rider Instruction, Groundwork and Hoofcare was in Poland at a unique school that always placed the horse first.
Since then my research and professional experiences has continued to expand my repertoire of training practises and theoretical principals.
Emotional Horsemanship online course is a introduction into this approach.
