Our Philosophy
The grace and power of the horse has inspired man for centuries.

Far beyond his practical contribution to civilisation, the horse has served us in ways that are less tangible yet no less valuable.

For many people the attraction is compelling though it can rarely be adequately described in words, and for each one of us it is different and deeply personal.
However, sometimes the very essence of what the horse is, his silent strength, his freedom of spirit, his honesty and his sensitivity can result in behaviour that we find challenging and difficult to cope with, and the very qualities we so value become a source of confusion and frustration.

It doesn’t have to be that way – but it is up to us to learn how to change it.

So the emphasis here at Oakwood Horsemanship is to teach people how to bring out the best in their horses without taking away their dignity, and how to create a successful partnership built on trust, communication and mutual respect.
