My aim is always to produce a reliable, soft and responsive animal. I combine dressage, groundwork and de-sensitisation to create a basic training programme, which produces leadership from the handler and softness within the horse. Once this is achieved, teaching becomes easy as the horse allows you to educate him.
My first concern is always the horse.
