Body and Soul Horsemanship

If you do something or believe something

'body and soul', you do it or believe it completely... with all your effort and ability! 

 Reward Based Training using Positive Reinforcement Methods !!

My philosophy for horsemanship is a very holistic one, striving to understand all four aspects of the horse and human... the mind, the emotions, the body and the spirit. In many horsemanship training programs the deepest part of the horse...their spirit, soul or individual personality, is overlooked as is the vast range of emotions that they can feel. Horses feel all the same emotions that we do...fear, anger, resentment, happiness, sadness, depression, joy, excitement and the list goes on. Horses have their own soul purpose, own life paths, own learnings and teachings to experience in this life time just as we humans do. They are very conscious and connected to us in more ways than most people realize and they can be mirrors, teachers and healers for us as we can be for them.

'Connecting' with horses is about connecting to the horse at the deepest energetic, mental and emotional level and working with the individual beings that they are. It is about 'connecting' with your heart, mind and physical body. It is not hard to do and everybody can learn to do it, it just requires us to learn to be still and open our hearts and our minds. We must understand the horse physically as a prey and herd animal but at the same time, understand them as a spiritual being.
