The starting process (aka breaking) under saddle is one of the most impressionable times of a young horse’s life. If done correctly you move smoothly into an ever-lasting partnership, if done incorrectly you spend many hours, weeks, months or even years figuring out their history and reassuring them of a non-violent future.
During this week you will learn and practice gentle communication methods. These methods are proven, with positive results around the Globe, in all equine disciplines. They are highly effective, safe and very efficient for not only young un-started horses but also to reestablish a more cooperative relationship with mature horses as well.

Gentling foals can be some of the most important and rewarding work you will ever do. Over the course of 7 days you will learn Anna’s unique and comprehensive methodologies for introducing these young horses to the world of humans and training.
We want our foals to feel safe, and their experiences with humans to be positive, memorable ones. These first important lessons stay with them for the rest of their lives and so the training must be done right. Acknowledging the “whisper” is crucial, recognizing the “try” is an art.
And now it’s your turn to join Anna for a week of fun, friends and foals.
