Specialising in developing a foundation on a horse. Whether that be helping a horse to gain more confidence and understanding or the starting and handling of young horses
David has over 20 years of experience from starting young horses and dealing with horses with behavioural issues to teaching people the foundations of horsemanship. He considers what is important to the horse and what will work for the horse through understanding horse psychology and seeing things from the horse’s perspective.
David’s strengths are the beginnings and the development of a foundation on a horse. A solid foundation is about the preparation and building blocks for the future, it’s about getting a good start in life and then to go on and build the future. With horses it is about getting a horse to where they are self confident and understanding of the task in hand. Whether that be helping a horse to gain more confidence and understanding to load in a trailer or the starting and handling of young horses. The better the preparation and foundation the better the outcome. Laying a foundation for performance is the best preparation for success for both horse and rider. What is really imperative is to consider the horse, what is important to the horse and what works for the horse.
David’s expertise has been showcased throughout the world at international shows and events, including: to the Dubai Royal Family, Burghley Horse Trials, Horse of the Year Show, Your Horse Live, The British Horse Society’s annual spring instructors conference and Equitana Asia Pacific. Over the years, David has had the opportunity to meet and train with some of the best horsemen in the world, such as Ray Hunt, Mike Bridges, Craig Johnson, Martin Black and Pat Parelli.
