This is the way I wish for my clients to be approaching their horses. I want them to steer, lead, direct their horses with purpose and intent. I want them to be confident in their understanding of training philosophy.

“I have always held a very strong belief that talented horses can be trained and allowed to perform at the highest level without compromising the well being of the animal, physically or mentally. In this program we will delve into the process of building performance horses in a sustainable way. As riders and trainers we have a unique opportunity to have an impact on a specific animal. This is both an honor and a responsibility I look forward to helping you and your horse in your journey” ~ Allison

TRAINING THROUGH THE EYES OF YOUR HORSE...

I have put a lot of thought into the direction that I want this program to go. At its core, Willfully Guided Horsemanship is learning to see the world through the eyes of your horse, and utilize that knowledge in a structured and well thought out training regimen. Whether training a performance horse, or simply improving your abilities and relationship with your horse, it all starts with a solid philosophy and the understanding of some absolute truths about horses and the horse/human relationship. Most basic is the fundamental concept of pressure and release. With this solid foundation, you are creating a mission statement of sorts. If you have a grasp of the "Why" of what you are doing, you are much more capable of having the desired result and obtaining forward motion in your training. In each moment you spend with your horse, every motion relates back to this belief system. Every drill and technique is designed with these truths in mind. This is true for all levels and disciplines of horsemanship. I believe in the ability of an individual to train their own horse, but with this comes great responsibility. It is not a venture for just anyone, and certainly not for the close minded or weak hearted. If you desire to be the horseman or woman you have always wanted to be, I invite you to come along for the ride with me. Together we can move towards the goal of having a happy, healthy, reliable, well trained horse that is on a path to reaching his full potential. I welcome your comments, questions, stories and experiences.
