The horses lie at the heart of everything we do at HorseBack. They are trained using a variation on techniques known as natural horsemanship, and are particularly suited to working with beginners.

Learning to work with a horse is one of the most intricate and challenging things anyone can do. Gaining its trust, teaching it to follow you and respond to your signals, requires a combination of confidence, calm, patience and thought.

Once the relationship is built, the sense of achievement it brings to our participants is profound. Many of them find it hard to put the precise effect into words. Fantastic, brilliant, emotional are the most heard reactions, but it is their smiles that tell the full story.
