You are also welcome to watch Sandra working the horses. The training methods are influenced by “Natural Horsemanship“ concentrating on the trust between horse and human. Those methods are created by horse-trainers such as Buck Brennaman (The Horse Whisperer), Monty Robert, Pat Parelli, Ray Hunt, Sam Powell and Tom Lyons.
Extreme / Mountain Trail:
Why the idea of extreme trails as training facilities? Ditches, bridges, fallen trees, rocks and many more maybe can encounter horse and rider in free nature. Out of this reason and to open this experience to all riders the concept of extreme trails – in USA “mountain trails“ – was born. In this concept a trail is designed with natural obstacles.
The purpose of such a trail is not just to overcome the obstacles. In fact the purpose is that the horse surmounts the obstacles safe and with a relaxed and free posture of the head. Speed does not matter but a safe walk. The rider always should be able to give commands to his horse, such as to stop, to move forward, backward or to the side.The training on extreme trails is a welcome change for the horse and most of the horses really enjoy this a lot.
Last not least this a perfect method to strengthen the confidence between horse and rider.
