There is an ever increasing interest in ' and demand for ' Alternative Horsemanship Courses. This course will provide you with a basis for understanding equine behaviour and applying the principles of this understanding to some of the most important elements of working with horses on the ground. Six different aspects of 'Natural Horsemanship' are covered and are delivered in the following units, each lasting one day.

There is nothing more rewarding that starting your own horse and if you go about it the right way, you can give them a solid foundation on which to build the rest of their education. Using Alternative Horsemanship methods it can take as little as 45 minutes to have a rider sitting safely on a genuine un'started youngster which traditionally can take up to 2'3 weeks. We look first at building that all important relationship between you and the horse in the round pen, followed by the introduction of a saddle and longlining. It is important to establish that the young horse has a full understanding of walk, trot, halt, rein'back and turning. We then look at getting the first rider on and the critical importance of the position you adopt, along with all the safety precautions you should take to keep both you and your horse safe. We will also discuss common problems that you can encounter when starting a young horse and how to overcome them, as well as a few tricks of the trade. What is involved? Part time, one Saturday.
