Give your horse the gift of better health – let him get dirty! let him go barefoot!

What is Evolutionary Horsemanship?
It is a way of keeping and working with horses that considers the “whole” horse – diet/nutrition, health (physical, mental and emotional), hoof care, age, conformation, as well as stable management practices. It incorporates many methods and variations of Natural Horsemanship – but- it is not just another Natural Horsemanship method, it’s not just “round penning” and it’s not your grandfather’s way of horse training. Why evolutionary? Because we’ve hopefully evolved to more humane, communication-oriented methods of horse teaching and moved away from the more dominant, aggressive methods of whips, chains, tie-downs and punishment. Evolutionary Horsemanship encompasses much more than basic groundwork and riding skills. It’s about building a relationship, developing a partnership and strengthening a bond. It encompasses all that is “horse” with an emphasis on natural.

Explore Evolutionary Horsemanship and Find Solutions for:
Becoming a “benevolent herd leader”, Horse-Human Communication, “De-mystifying” Natural horsemanship
Aggressiveness, Nervousness, and Fear – both horse and human
Gentling, Basic horse health – vital signs, illness/pain symptoms, first aid and alternative therapies, barefoot trimming, Round pen techniques
