What is “the key” to Horsemanship ?

the key is found when trust & respect come together.

This is a small glimpse into what Robbie teaches at his clinics and private sessions.

Trust

  • Is Patient

  • Is Kind

  • Is Humble

  • Is Courteous

  • Would Never Intentionally Harm the Horse

  • Is Communicated to the Horse Through Feel

Respect

  • Is Strong

  • Doesn’t Go Looking for Trouble

  • Doesn’t Dodge Trouble

  • Is Confident

  • Is Communicated to the Horse Through Feel

 

When you have the key, it promises the horse:

I WILL NEVER HARM YOU. I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE SURE NOTHING WILL HARM YOU. IF YOU STAY WITH ME, YOU ARE SAFE. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR. IT’S OK IF YOU DO GET FEARFUL BECAUSE IT JUST GIVES ME THE CHANCE TO PROVE THAT I AM UNWAVERING IN THIS PROMISE TO YOU.
