As we know, horses are domesticated animals. They are used to living in the vicinity of people and have adapted to the environment we have created for them. That’s pretty special, especially when you start to dig deeper into the world of the wild horse. How do wild horses live? What do they need and how do they communicate with others? By learning about this, it’s easier to prevent or resolve any behavioural challenges.
The language of the horse is at the heart of these lessons, both in theory and practice. The practical lessons start with the basics of liberty work, groundwork, double long lines, obstacle training and trailer loading. We also start to tackle behavioural challenges. For this level, you do not need any specific knowledge or your own horse, anyone with an interest in horses and their behaviour is very welcome.
The first level of the course consists of eight teaching days, in two courses. The first block is 4 days, the second block 5 days including one day of exams. The lessons take place at various locations, so you can experience as many different horses as possible.
