Methods and Ethos
Lindsey uses a range of methods that employ positive reinforcement to make powerful changes in behaviour, eschewing aversive training in favour of a more gentle, horse-centred approach. She has a background in both traditional and Natural Horsemanship.
It is her ethos that many behaviour issues are actually the horses' way of expressing that fundamental needs are not being met. Many can be solved by educating horse owners about how to listen to what their horse is really telling them, thus uncovering the unmet need underlying the undesirable behaviour.
Lindsey is a huge proponent of natural horse keeping and believes that wherever possible equines should be cared for in a way that is mindful of their natural needs, behaviours and instincts. Her approach is holistic and includes horse training, owner education and equine care recommendations.
Lindsey can consult with horse owners about a range of behavioural issues, via an initial telephone or video call followed up by a face-to-face assessment. She will then be able to create a bespoke solution, equipping owner's with the skills to manage their horse's behaviour. She also offers residential packages where equines and their owners can stay on-site and receive daily one to one tuition. She works only under permission from the horse's vet.
