What does natural horsemanship mean to us?
We respect our horses, and their natures. They are a very important part of our team. They live in a natural setting, out in the field in a herd. It's amazing to see how strong their bonds are, and how they form lifelong friendships. When we retire them they get to live out their old age in the same herd, with an occasional days work with our youth camps. Our oldest horse Charlie is 36 years old!
Our training methods don't include any force. We use reward based training methods, not punishment. This gives us horses that love humans, and work with us because they want to, not because they have to.
If you would like to learn more about natural horsemanship, we offer natural horsemanship courses on our farm.
