Friendship First Horsemanship 

'Be More Horse'
Horsemanship is becoming more and more popular as the idea of a better relationship with horses seems to be a goal for the majority of equestrians whatever your discipline or breed of horse.
Cindy's Horsemanship programme is a fantastic way of learning how to understand your horse from her time she has spent with her horses from an early age to her mentors all over the world 
The time she spent in various countries, with great horsemen, women and horses every day has allowed her to set up her own horsemanship training for others 
Each horse she has worked with has taught her more than any human ever could 
She excels in her ability to communicate and gain trust with the most aggressive or untrusting of horses as she understand where this behaviour comes from and can change how the horse feels around humans as they learn to communicate with Cindy
Horses with aggressive behaviour can then become the closest of friends with people and become gentle and well mannered horses and a pleasure to be around 

These horsemanship clinics cater for horse owners who would like help understanding their horse and the relationship they have together to improve their day to day handling and riding to make for a more enjoyable and harmonious time being around your horse
For all owners whether just handling and ground work, happy hacker, jumpers,  eventers, dressage, western. 
A good healthy relationship with your horse built on trust from the ground up is what  is important so whatever riding discipline you do, the same issues will occur as the horse is set on a behaviour pattern that starts on the ground 
If these communication and body language tests aren't agreed to on the ground, it transfers and then manifests into sometimes difficult situations in riding. 

Subtle body language from the horse is their way of communicating with each other 
Cindy teaches all owners how to read the horses body language and therefore build a great relationship within a matter of minutes 
The clinics are great way to build on a great and successful future with your horse for many years 
Why not book onto a clinic or come along as a spectator

Dummy Calf Roping Clinics
A real fun day teaching everyone how to rope on horseback using dummy cows
