Group Description

~ First do no Harm ~
That makes our prime directive, "What is best for the horse" in all things.

This site was created for those interested in a non-violent method of interacting with a horse called Friendship Training, (and sharing the most intimate relationship possible with them).

It is also a gathering place for those interested in bettering the life of their horses mentally, emotionally and physically.

A contented horse, a happy horse, an 'eager to learn' horse, is a pleasure to behold and share a very special part of our lives.

Giving our horses a pain-free, happy, contented life holds incredible rewards and benefits for both our horses and ourselves.

Sharing this special relationship with them brings a sense of closeness and intimacy brings our hopes and dreams into reality.

Learning is greatly diminished by stress hormones.

We gain and use the knowledge from equine ethologists and research scientists to better understand our horse's physical, emotional, instinctive and spiritual needs.

This list is where science sense joins with common sense.

Where compassion and empathy join with logic and critical thinking.

And where horse and human hearts meet each other.

Friendship Training is unique in the horse world because our focus is on establishing the Peer Attachment, (horse buddy) bond between a horse and a human.

Friendship Training is pro bitless, pro barefoot and pro Horse Agility!

Friendship Training is against 'caging' a horse on a semi-permanent or permanent basis for a variety of reasons. Valid scientific and ethological explanations available,

Friendship Training does not use ropes, whips, round pens, clickers or other gadgets to force a horse into Learned Helplessness.
