Stony Rock Horsemanship
With a firm commitment to the mental and physical health & well being of the horse, we offer training for everything from colt starting, to troubleshooting problems, relationship building, and development of the horse under saddle. We put a strong focus on communicating with the horse, earning their trust & respect, and developing a fluid partnership as the foundation of our work. By creating an environment in which the horse has the sense of "being seen, being heard, feeling felt, and getting, gotten" (Sarah Schlote), they begin to feel safe and become more willing partners than fearful prey animals.
