Expert mentors Bronwen Packham and Jenny Major who are West Country based and Sarah Weston from the New Forest will be at the fair, at Westpoint, near Exeter nest month, highlighting their amazing intelligent horsemanship techniques.
All three are experts at training horses without drama, based on am understanding of the psychology of the horse. The aim of the demo, entitled Three Wishes is to show how to help the horse to become trusting, calm and safe and the owner to be trustworthy, calm and patient in response.
In order to prove the success of these techniques the trio will bring horses from the renowned Horseworld charity in Bristol and cover aspects of groundwork, de-spooking and other behavioural work.
Their acclaimed Hands on Horsemanship Courses are run in conjunction with Horseworld, where Intelligent Horsemanship techniques are used extensively to rehabilitate horses in their care.
Bronwen is a former theatre stage manager, Sarah, a former lawyer and Jenny a graduate in human and equine sports science. Their professional approach combined with their love of horses provides an intelligent, informed and logical foundation for all of their training.
Sarah is also the author of the praised No Fear No Force, which has helped thousands of people train their semi-feral and unhandled foals. So the equine fair gives the chance to pick up someknowledge from people in the know.
