Natural Western Riding & Leadership

Deepen and develop the body communication between horse and rider and experience your effect on others. The horse will clearly reflect this to you.

Develop a good feeling for the right timing, the sensitive use of thigh and weight aids to reduce the influence of the reins and, if necessary, to avoid it altogether. Among other things, this builds good, trusting and sensitive cooperation between man and horses.

The course

Program:

The course consists of theory and practice using, among other things, the intuitive and pragmatic methods of "Natural Western Riding" and the "Mountain Trail Course". The practical part of the course takes place at different venues: Riding and trail arena with a wide variety of exercises, as well as in the countryside.

To whom?

With this course, we would like to address all riders who would like to deepen their communication with the horse on the ground and in the saddle. All those who have already acquired the basics of western riding and can independently perform the gaits walk, trot and canter.

Didactic Method

The course provides an interactive introduction to natural Western Riding the horse, to understand him better and to have a respectful relationship: how he lives, how he sees and how he relates to.
The course will be composed of different settings (riding school, trail area, countryside, an equipped field for balance…) where to experiment the teacher’s and horse’s indications to the riders.
The difficulties of the Mountain Trail allow us to understand and apply all the maneuvers learned in the field and their practical utility.
The changing nature of contexts is useful to supply the best occasions to verify the teachings and the proposed didactic method.

Teacher

Lessons are conducted by Fabio Tascone, in a simple and intuitive way with the Natural Riding method developed in 35 years of teaching to riders and horses.
Connoisseur and scholar of the sweet taming, Fabio built an alphabet for all horse lovers, based on the listening of their own body and the aware use of it, in order to communicate with the horse.
Farrier and teacher, riding instructor, trainer, he holds numerous experiences in different contexts, either for horses‘ types, for the function or for management situations. The skills developed during his life with horses have always been aimed toward animal welfare. For this reason, Fabio based his own experience on a „healthy use“ of horses, going from the observation of their behavior to a deep knowledge of the relationship of man and horse.
