After working with "traditional” English methods for many years, Teena felt that there had to be another approach to working with horses .... and so the search began into natural
horsemanship and horse psychology.
The principles of horsemanship are based on understanding the horse and how they have evolved. To work with horses you
need to develop patience and respect for self and horse.
With these principles, Teena then embarked on her horsemanship journey, she followed and attended clinics with professionals in the horsemanship domain, such as Phil Rodey, Monte Roberts, Various Pat Parelli Specialists, Bianca Gillanders and Tanja Kraus.
Vision for the Future
To continue doing what I love, by helping people achieve their dreams and overcome their fears, with the support and knowledge that our four-legged friends offer.
AND to continue to provide an environment where horses in my care receive an opportunity to interact with other horses in a herd environment as nature intended.
