Horsemanship, a philosophy of working with horses based on the horse’s natural instincts and methods of communication, with the understanding that horses do not learn through fear or pain, but rather from pressure and the release of pressure.
Over the past 40 years, Natural Horsemanship has come to the fore in horse training. Also sometimes referred to as “horse whispering", it focuses on building relationships with horses, using the same behaviours shown in wild herds.
At True Horsemanship, just outside Nottingham, Mickey Gavin can guide and help you build this level of communication with your own horse.

Internationally renowned horsemanship instructor Ingela Larsson Smith offers an annual clinic at Mickey Gavin's True Horsemanship Centre. Ingela has spent most of her life as a student of the horse. In her clinics shares some of the things she has learned that help create a strong and connected relationship between a horse and 'their' human. Her courses are truly life-changing, and every minute is packed with amazing insights on how to be the kind of person your horse will want to be with. You can attend with or without your horse, you will have the chance to learn the basic skills with your horse, or can observe take notes and ask questions if attending without a horse. Either way this is a unique, unrivalled experience and a must for anyone who has a real desire to understand and connect with horses as a herd 'leader'.
