Trainers (Recommended Associates)

Our Recommended Associates are specialists in training and understanding horses, ponies, both young and ‘horses with problems’. These are the only people Intelligent Horsemanship recommend to assist with the training of other peoples horses.

Using established principles of psychology and equine behaviour together with years of experience this way of training has become increasingly popular. Sympathetic to both horses and people our Recommended Associates have helped horses and horse owners achieve a better understanding and achieve their full potential all around the world.

Whether you have a young foal or weanling that needs handling; a horse that needs saddling, long-reining, backing; a horse who won’t shoe, catch, load, clip, needs schooling, hacking out, or anything else you can think one of our Recommended Associates can provide you with a solution to get you heading in the right direction.
