Why Intelligent Horsemanship?

Kelly Marks and the Intelligent Horsemanship team teach far more than human and horse communication skills. Our sympathetic techniques, commonly referred to as ‘horse whispering’ are centred around working with the horse psychology to establish effective communication. We can help tackle all of your horse behavioural challenges; common questions we are asked include; ‘How can I improve my confidence with my horse?’ ‘Can anyone help me load my horse into a trailer or horsebox?’ and ‘I’d like my horse to be safe and willing’ or ‘What is the most successful way to start my horse?’ (Commonly referred to as ‘horse breaking’). 

The answers to equine problems are multi faceted.  If you are looking to set up for success in your horse and human relationships then Intelligent Horsemanship is the place for you.

Join our Members Club and you gain access to benefits that include the best horse magazine in the world today and access to a super supportive horsey facebook group. Membership includes an extensive video library, live and recorded webinars by leading equine experts, access to equine research projects and so much more!

If you would like an encouraging and supportive equine environment then Intelligent Horsemanship is for you.

You can achieve life changing experiences and practical training in horse communication even if you don’t own a horse. Our Zoom online horse psychology courses are extremely popular.

Feel you need one-to-one support? We have our fantastic team of IH Trainers who may be able to offer you local horse help.

Think you’ll never be able to get the horsey relationship of your dreams? Think again, IH is here to support you all the way 😊

I have recently completed an on line 8-week course in horse psychology which has really helped me understand better a horse's mentality. One of the most key things that I learned was how to distinguish between behavioural issues and physical ones (brain or pain). There were many hints and tips which were invaluable, each week there was preparation (homework) to be done and the sessions were interactive. There was also a WhatsApp group for participants to share information and ask questions. I would recommend.

I have just taken part in the on line Horse Psychology Course hosted by Kelly and Sandra. It was an interesting and informative course, presented in a professional but light hearted way, which I honestly looked forward to every Tuesday. There is optional homework with notes and information sent after the zoom meeting to help you absorb the issues raised. The IH team are also available to answer any questions or queries you have in between meetings. Kelly and Sandra are so knowledgeable and experienced, they can relate their own stories and experiences to back up the learning. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone thinking about trying to understand more about how horses think and react and why. Thank you to all of the IH team for an enjoyable and enlightening course.

I have been an IH member for over 15 years now. They have revolutionised my equestrian life and I attend courses with them every year to further my learning.My "difficult" horse is now easy and well behaved thanks to their teachings. I went to them out of desperation initially as I could not cope with her, but they taught me to "find a better way".I have learnt so much via IH and hope to continue doing so.A wonderful bunch of people, with fantastic ethos, ethics and ability. They always make people feel included and assist learning. They never make anyone feel small or rubbished, but help them to think and explore other options in a safe manner.The recent Zoom seminars have also been fabulous.My personal thanks to Rosie, Sandra, Jim Goddard and Kelly for all their teaching and support in particular.

I had a wonderful week at Hartsop farm helping as a volunteer on the Foundation Course. I can reassure people it wasn't slave labour and was a pleasure from start to finish. Everyone including the teachers, students, other volunteers and farm owners were a pleasure to be around, sharing a genuine love and curiosity about working with horses whilst caring about people too. I learnt alot, felt welcomed and appreciated and am grateful for having had a week in horsey human heaven.

I have completed three courses with IH and recently volunteered my help at the 5 Day Foundation Course. I am blown away by the high levels of competence, organisation and knowledge of all the trainers. Humour, anecdotes and solid horse knowledge, with evidence in the form of experience, research and video clips. I saw people grow in confidence and experience emotional connections with horses. Each lecture had people riveted. The horses used were super stars.

I have had a real issue loading my daughters pony. Carley was absolutely amazing and showed total empathy for the fear I had created for myself. She was understanding and so knowledgeable.she would stay in contact with me when she knew I was struggling and would be so calm in a situation that I would just not cope with. I never thought I could have achieved what I did when we got my daughter out at a different location but we did and I can’t thank Carley enough❤️

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the five day foundation course last week. Having read all the glowing online reviews I was starting to get worried that my expectations had been set too high, but the course absolutely delivered. The wide range of trainers gave a really varied experience & it was a great mix of topics. I have already been able to put some of the techniques successfully into practice with my own horse & it has made me start to think about things a little differently. I'm really looking forward to joining more courses in the future. Thank you very much!

I have just completed a week on the foundation course with Kelly and the team. What an absolutely amazing experience! If you love your horse and want to get more from your relationship with them, I'd highly recommend booking yourself on a course!We learned how to join up and got to practice the technique all week, we got rider position assessments that blew everybody's minds! The course included long lining, ground work, so much on body language, loading basics and so much more!The team were so hospitable and friendly, making sure everybody took home some nuggets of wisdom to help them get more fulfilment from their relationships with their horses. It truly was a wonderful experience!I'm so excited to apply what I've learned at home.Thank you everybody, you're all amazing 💜
