Originating in the Pacific Northwest of the
U.S.A, a revolution in horsemanship has swept the country, and has reached the
far corners of the earth.
Actually, there is nothing new about the kind
of horsemanship we are talking about. It has always been used by some
talented horsemen, but, now for the first time, this non-confrontational,
humane, swift, and effective training philosophy is becoming popular worldwide.
Why? It is because today's horse owners are better educated, more
receptive to the science of psychology, and because of the information explosion
that is occurring in most technologies.
Video, the internet, publications, and jet
travel which allow clinicians to travel rapidly are spreading the word.
Below are some of the better known trainers who are masters at behavior-shaping
in the horse. These people have produced books and videos and also
do clinics all over the world.
If you are involved with horses, professionally
or recreationally, I urge you to become familiar with as many of these fine
horsemen as possible. After 6,000 years of domestication, these people are
advancing the art of horsemanship so rapidly that most of the traditional
methods of the past have become obsolete.
This list is by no means a complete.
There are other progressive horsemen, but it is my policy to only recommend
those whom I have personally seen work with horses and students, and are using
scientifically correct training methods, rather than various traditional
