It's about realising or even more accurately, 'releasing' natural potential by having a complete understanding of all the factors that impact on you and your horse. It means examining your horse's environment, its feeding, social interactions and its learning opportunities as well as how you both communicate.
Natural performance is about achieving your goals at a level that is optimal to individual horse and rider health and well-being, a level of performance that is healthy for the way our bodies have evolved.
Our approach is based on a framework of knowledge and understanding that addresses the five key enblers in you and your horse's relationship
Balance for health
Creating the right environment
Interacting with your horse
Teaching and learning for you & your horse
Understanding our own behaviours
It's less important where your aspirations lie and more important to understand the level of performance that can be achieved in a healthy, natural and humane manner for you as well as your horse. Outside this level of performance, compromises may be necessary to meet the differing demands of life.
Ours is a whole horse approach. We understand that life is not always straightforward and will help you to gain understanding and enable you to make the right choices.We work to restore internal and external balance by removing the barriers that inhibit the fulfilment of you and your horse's potential
