Natural Horsemanship is a philosophy of working with horses based on the horse’s natural instincts and methods of communication, with the understanding that horses do not learn through fear or pain, but rather from pressure and the release of pressure.
The human must be knowledgeable of the horse’s natural instincts and communication system, and use this knowledge in his work with the horse.

why bare foot is better


The horse’s hooves act as an auxiliary pumps for the circulatory system, and work by expanding and contracting as the horse moves.  When a shoe is nailed to the hoof, the hoof can no longer expand and contract as is normal, which results in decreased circulation in the foot.  After a while, the lack of proper circulation begins to have negative effects on the physiology of the foot structure, resulting in problems such as navicular. 

And not only ; NO horse shoes
No, we also do not ride with a bit,
and we do not allow spurs

believe us it is not necessary !!

and wrongly used it hurts the horse and cause damage.

Pressure and release

Horses are social herd animals, evolved for social interaction and the ability to escape predators. The horse has a highly developed communication system practiced primarily through body language. It is possible for humans to learn to use body language to communicate with the horse. Horses use ear position, head position, speed of movement, threatening gestures, showing of teeth and swinging of hips, and many other gestures to communicate. They are quick to escalate a behavior if early warnings are not heeded. Similarly, in natural horsemanship, the handler or trainer uses body language along with other forms of gentle pressure with increasing escalation to get the horse to respond. Horses are quick to form a relationship of respect with humans who treat them in this fashion; “firm but fair” is a motto.

living in a herd

Horses are highly social herd animals that prefer to live in a group.
There also is a linear
dominance hierarchy in any herd. They will establish a "pecking order" for the purpose of determining which herd member directs the behavior of others, eats and drinks first, and so on. This behavior pattern also applies to their interrelationship with humans. A horse that respects the human as a "herd member" who is higher in the social order will behave in a more appropriate manner towards all humans than a horse that has been allowed to engage in dominant behavior over humans.
Horses are able to form companionship attachments not only to their own species, but with other animals, including humans. In fact, many
domesticated horses will become anxious, flighty and hard to manage if they are isolated.

Offer the respect, earn their trust, build a relation, rejoice in the love, become a team.
