Harmony Equitation combines horse behaviour and natural biomechanics to create a horse friendly, ethical training methodology that treats all horses as individuals.
Alongside being the owner of Harmony Equitation, Jennie is a certified ISNCHP trimmer and instructor with a passion for rehabilitation.
“Simplicity is key. Most horses start their ridden careers with very little knowledge of how to use their bodies, often started too young with too much demanded at an early age. We start by teaching horses awareness, how to respond lightly and appropriately to a request, and how to tune in and listen on a deeper level. All horses are capable of communicating, but some have had to resort to destructive and violent behaviour in order to be heard. Whilst safety is key, it is important that horses are not shut-down and forced to comply, but rather given the opportunity to be understood.
The training we at Harmony Equitation sits somewhere in the realms of Natural Horsemanship, Classical Dressage and Modern Biomechanism. It is all for these, yet in many ways goes beyond the written doctrine and has become a holistic concept that teaches horses the life skills they need to succeed in any sphere.”
