“Horsemanship is the art of mastering our own movements, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, Not the horses”

- Mark Rashid


Horsemanship is the Foundation

Silver Haven EQ offers equine-inspired horsemanship sessions/clinics that focus on learning the basics about horses as well more advanced communication and enhanced partnership building. Connecting with horses on the ground is fundamental to establishing a good partnership and relationship with horses, whether you plan to ride and compete with your equine partner or just want to do pleasure/therapeutic session’s. Time is also spent on observing herd dynamics and how they interact with the herd. Horses are extremely social and curious animals who have a strong need for security. Sessions are equine inspired as they are the best teachers of how they want to be interacted with.




Sessions/clinics are relaxed, fun, and interactive. They flow organically, using teachable moments as they present. This is a unique opportunity for those who want to understand horses and increase the level of engagement. There is NO riding in these sessions.
