Equine Behaviour Consulting
Owning a horse or pony can become of the most incredible and rewarding experiences imaginable.
It can also be a frustrating and confusing minefield and perhaps you have begun thinking things along the line of...
This isn't what I imagined...
It wasn't like this with my last horse...
Why aren't we bonding...
Why are my fellow liveries gossiping about me and my horse...
Is he being naughty or is he scared...
I'm too embarrassed to admit I am scared/don't know what to do...
Things don't always go to plan with horses and sometimes don't go as smoothly as imagined.
This doesn't mean things can't ever be as magical as you'd hoped, it simply means some work needs to be done to uncover the reason behind the undesirable behaviour and put a plan in place to make it better for everyone involved.
