Natural Horsemanship Part 3: Useful Equipment & Haltering with Feeling 2018-02-26T00:00:00+01:00

In horsemanship, the following equipment makes a difference: rope halter, long lead, horseman stick- with these you're very well prepared to begin communicating with your horse. Jenny and Peer will show you what is so special about these things and why they're more useful than a normal lead or whip.

You can see the big difference a simple rope can make. Jenny and Peer use it pretty well for everything. Leading horses, practicing exercises, learning tricks or just mastering everyday situations. Take a look at the ideas with "a rope in your back pocket " and impress more than just your horse...

"Haltering is part of your partnership": halter on and go- with Jenny and Peer it works a little differently. "For us, it is important that haltering is done with feeling". Even just putting a halter on is an opportunity to build a harmonic relationship with your horse and see if your horse is listening to and concentrating on you. How? Jenny will show you step by step.
