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
The principles of horsemanship are based on
understanding the horse and how they have evolved. To work with horses
you need 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, Jennifer Walker and most recently attending Bootcamp for Broncs
run by Bianca Gillanders. To deepen her skill set; Teena also has accreditation with Equine Psychotherapy Australia, (EPA) studying under Meg Kirby and Noel Haarburger. Equine Assisted Learning incorporates horse / herd behaviour with human Counseling and Psychotherapy. Teena has also completed an Advanced Trauma training with Noel Haarburger.
Vision for the Future
To continue doing what I love, both helping people achieve their dreams and overcome their fears, whilst enjoying their riding experiences and developing a close bond with their horse.
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.
