The first dates for the next Positive Horsemanship course are now available. The weekend of 2nd-3rd May is available so I am looking for some feedback for which course to hold. If you want to attend a course with Vanessa then please email me: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it indicating which course you would like to attend and we will get the planning underway.

We have 2 votes so far for Pony Power but the course content will be decided according to the majority interest.

You can bring along your own horse or we can have horses available that you can work with for the two days.

If you are bringing a horse you will need to bring electric fencing to section of a paddock area in adjoining fields. Please also bring water buckets so you can provide water for your horses whilst they are here overnight. There are three stables available and can be allocated on a first come basis at time of booking, should your horse need to be stabled overnight. I can provide bedding at cost (Easibed) but you will need to muck out your own horse and clean stable at the end of the two days.

Courses to choose from:

Basic Skills to Positive Horsemanship 2

Five Foundation Skills for Young Horses

New Ready to Ride

Fit to Travel

Horse Behaviour and the Psychology of Training

The 21st Century Horse

Handling the Untouched, Traumatised and Wild Horse

Costs for the two day course is 200 EURO which includes lunch and snacks.

What is Positive Horsemanship?

(the concept) supports trainers, products & ideas that are committed to the emotional and physical well being of the horse and the handler. We only promote trainers and products that we believe will enhance relationships between people and horses. The Positive Horsemanship team areconstantly researching trainer's methods and equipment to add to their portfolio. These are then included on the website and promoted at events around the country.We are always delighted to hear about any ideas, new or old, that fit into our criteria.

(the method)

…it educates people to observe all styles of horsemanship and pick the bits that work for them and their horses! Using a wealth of knowledge gathered over many years we help people research the various trainers, methods and the psychology behind them and make a decision about what works for them. We encourage them to think for themselves and build their own Horsemanship Programme instead of working to someone else's criteria. We constantly work towards a positive outcome for horses and their trainers.
