Learn how your horse thinks and how to more effectively communicate with them.Watch Promo
I am really excited to dive into the topic of Horsemanship. To me, Horsemanship is all about understanding how horses learn and think and figuring out how we can better communicate with them both on the ground and in the saddle. This topic is very near and dear to my heart because of my horse, Geronimo. When I was 14, I got Geronimo as a green-broke 4 year old. Within four months, he had developed a terrible rearing problem and was labeled as a "problem horse." Everyone told us to get rid of him. The truth of the matter was that Geronimo wasn't a bad horse, he just didn't understand what we wanted.
Geronimo forced me to learn about horsemanship. Rather than showing Dressage and moving up the levels (which is what I wanted to do), I had to go back to the basics and really learn and understand how horses think and learn and how to break things down in a way that Geronimo could understand what I wanted! In the end, he turned out to be an incredible horse. And, I learned so much from him.
I hope that you enjoy this topic as much as I do! Here is what you can expect in this course:
