Our training philosophy at WHMF it's not about winning a blue ribbon, it's about winning the trust and connection with your horse. It's not about the ego, it's about learning the 'timing and feel' with your horse, it's about learning how to help build your horse's self-confidence.
As Ray Hunt use to say ....."What's in it for the horse"? ........... “There is no way that the horse will ever try to take advantage of you. He’s as honest and as truthful as anything you could ever work with. He has no ego that gets in his way. He has no pride that gets in his way. He doesn’t know what win or lose is. And those are the four things that get in the human’s way."
Tom Dorrance - "It may seem like you will never get anything accomplished, but sometimes going slow is the quickest way to get there."
And that is what we do here, we give the horse the time to think and to understand what we are asking them to do.
