    To start natural horsemanship, I suggest using the Perrelli training program. If you are beginning natural horsemanship training, I recommend starting with the seven games of Perrelli. The seven games are a way to communicate better with your horse, and build a stronger bond. Like in every human...

    I have been doing natural horsemanship training for a little over two years. Over the past two years, I have seen continuous growth in many horses and riders. So here's the essential question, what is natural horsemanship? Natural horsemanship is a more natural way to teach a horse, for example...

    I'm not a fan of Clinton Anderson, I think the bottom line of his method is "Scare the horse into submission". However, I'm curious to hear other people's point of view on him. What's your opinion on him, and why or why not are you a fan of his method?

    Hey everyone, I am super passionate about sustainability, and am so curious if anyone within the "equestrian world" focuses on this within their lifestyle? Do you take sustainability, your carbon footprint, "fair trade", organic, ect, into account in your daily equestrian decisions? Would...

    Hi I was just wondering if someone could tell me if a mechanical hackamore was painless for a horse because it has no bit. I'm a bit confused in whether it would be better to ride in a rope halter or a mechanical hackamore. Can someone please let me know which is best for my horse to be pain...

    I was wondering if anyone has had luck hosting biweekly or monthly horsemanship evenings? We are some of only a few people locally who use "natural" horsemanship techniques and want to do everything we can to encourage and support people who want to give it a shot. We are not wanting it to be...
