Respecting your horse and finding common ground
Horses are extremely intuitive beings, and as soon as the rider is able to demonstrate their ability to work with them, they can feel it. All of the communication brought forth by natural horsemanship is non-verbal, and in fact, you might be able to apply some of the things you learn to your everyday life. It’s about more than just going for a trail ride, it’s about understanding, compassion and the ability to connect. All things that we need to be more focused on in our day-to-day experience. We believe in natural horsemanship for so many reasons, but most importantly we believe it’s the example that needs to be set for the ethical treatment of animals in the industry. No longer is acceptable to work with brute force, or to encourage dominion over our animals. Now we know, there’s a better way.
Utilizing natural horsemanship means both horse and rider get a relaxed and enjoyable experience. You’ll go from being a passive rider, to an active participant, and isn’t that something that we all strive to do in our lives? When you really get down to it, we all want to take an active role in our own existence. We all want cooperation and understanding, because it’s those virtues that will truly lead us toward total harmony.
Our philosophy at the Campbell Hill’s Guest Ranch is simple; we want our natural horsemanship programs and trail rides to act as ambassadors for harmonious living. We believe that horses, humans and nature can all live together peacefully, and we want to show you how. Book a trail ride with us today and be well on your way to an experience that will last a lifetime.
