Horse Psychology and Natural Horsemanship

Workshop on Friday 31st January 2020, Murquab, Dubai-Al Ain Road

Christina and her horse Flamenco

A unique seminar on horse psychology and natural horsemanship suitable for Horse Owners, Riders, Veterinary Practitioners and Stable Managers.

You will become aware of the horses' specific body language and learn how to interpret it.
This will help you to understand herd movements as well as individual behavior which is useful for developing specific training programs.

We will help you understand your horse with very simple means (no expensive material is necessary) and to analyze where it needs help.
You will be amazed by how much your relationship to the horse and your athletic performance will improve after this course.

Our body language alone can work wonders and we will show you how to use it effectively on the ground, whether you are a beginner or have been riding for years.

The course includes hands-on practice, plus a manual with useful exercises and information.
