DFS: Natural Horsemanship

June 2, 2012 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Learn to be safe, confident and progressive with horses. Horse thinking is the opposite of human thinking, so we need to learn to use our body language and read a horse’s body language. This class will help you understand how horses think, what their body language is telling you, what your body language is telling them and progress to playing, as opposed to working, with the haltered horses on a 12’ rope. You will learn games that engage the horses’ minds, emotions and bodies, as well as your minds, emotions and bodies! The horses are trained already to make it easier for you to get better responses and be safe, learning how your intent and energy affect the horse’s attitudes and responses. Wear hard-soled shoes or boots, long pants and a shirt you can tuck in plus a hat.

For those of you who have taken this course previously, you are now welcome to bring your equine partner to join you in the class. A negative coggins is required as well as a bucket from which to water your horse. Proper equipment is recommended- you may email Brenda to find out where this can be purchased. For returning students bringing horses: please arrive 1/2 hour early so they can get used to the surroundings, allowing us to start on time. Sorry, but for safety reasons we can not allow stallions. We look forward to meeting you and your equines and enjoying a fun filled day together!
