Supporting your intuitive notions that using pain and punishment is not necessary to create a disciplined and cooperative relationship between you and your horse, I am at your service to lead you through your introduction and transition to incorporating the foundation principles and theories of Alexander Nevzorov into practical implementation in working with your horse.
"It was fascinating to discover that, after 50 years of considering myself knowledgeable about horses, I still had so much to learn. My relationship with my mares has improved greatly since we met Donna."
"Horses have been with me most of my life. For some unknown/known reason, I always felt I needed trainers involved with horses and me. Looking back, all the trainers were "obstacles" for the horses and me, until an NHE seminar in 2013, where Donna & I met. Instead of an "obstacle", I met an "opportunity", for the horses and me! It was an opportunity for true mentorship, real horse knowledge (from behavior to hooves) and my hosting an NHE seminar in March 2015. Needless to say, obstacles are a distant memory!"
"I'm really enjoying being able to do my own trimming any time the need arises. Even in this drought, Lilo has not had any chipping this season because as soon as I spot a flare, I just take a couple swipes with the rasp and we're done. I think it's great that Donna is teaching people to trim their own horses, and I hope they enjoy trimming as much as I do."
"Donna is very knowledgeable, very approachable and took the time to answer questions, both personally and in the group setting. I left the seminar with a much better understanding of NHE philosophy and how to better apply this knowledge towards my relationship with horses. It also made my heart smile to build relationships and share stories with a group of amazing like-minded people."
"It's all about the aha, not about the yee-ha"
In a casual and communal atmosphere we will discuss the philosophy behind Nevzorov Haute Ecole including the foundation of human self development which is the key to unlocking the depth of communication that is possible between human and horse. Starting with the acceptance of not forcing our horses to do anything we will explore what we can do and how to do it in a way that encourages the horse to think and express himself. Horses living at the location will be invited to participate with us for demonstrations and practical instruction to take back to your own horses. Limited to 10 participants...Read More
