Horsemanship From the Heart...
is not just a program for horse training. It is more a way of thinking about every part of our interactions with equines. It gets down to the intent of your actions with your horse. It happens when you are trying to communicate clearly and honestly with the intention of helping your horse understand your requests. In a sense, it is your desire to develop your skills enough to touch the inside of a horse. When your actions truly come from this place in your heart, that is Horsemanship From the Heart!
