EQUIDO TRAINING - Equido is more than an equestrian qualification, it is an ethos, a way of thinking and interacting with your horse that should enable you to step into a world of possibilities that you did not even know existed. Equido strives to show you a new way, fit for this new century, of looking at all manner of horsemanship, from stable management, training, competing and rehabilitation, all from the horses' point of view because it is only when we look at things through their eyes that we can truly understand what it means to be a horse and understanding is the first step in communication

Fair Horsemanship - A humane, science-based horse training method created by French horse trainer Alizé V.Muckensturm. FH is dedicated to promote non-coercive training methods, to reduce the use of aversive tools and methods in handling and training horses, and to promote appropriate horse management. The method is based on the science of psychology and ethology and ruled by ethics. The method has proven to be efficient with a variety of horses in a variety of contexts including horses with traumatic pasts. Because FH does not rely on the use of aversives even a novice horse owner can learn to train and handle his horse at liberty from day one.
