Why Intelligent Horsemanship?

Kelly Marks and the Intelligent Horsemanship team teach far more than human and horse communication skills.

We offer sympathetic or ‘horse whispering’ techniques to tackle all of your horse behaviour 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 😊

Cannot recommend these courses enough! I have learnt more about horses in the last year working with the IH team than I have over the past 20 years of working with horses. The courses I have taken so far are the 5 day Foundation course and online Horse Phycology. Laura x

I have just completed the Online Equine Psychology course and it was fantastic! Kelly and Sandra are very knowledgeable and every week we covered so much which has really changed my way of thinking for both my pony and myself. I strongly recommend the courses provided at Intelligent Horsemanship and cannot wait to attend more!

So much knowledge & experience shared on these courses! The 5 day foundation course literally changed my entire way of handling horses, for the better! All the teachers are friendly and kind & lighthearted. Would recommend all equestrians, both experienced & novices, to do the courses

I have joined 2 online courses through the Intelligent Horsemanship website this year. The Confidence Course with Daisy Smith and the Horse Psychology Course with Kelly Marks. I am a sceptical but open minded person and wasn’t sure how much these courses would help, especially as they were online. Well, I can’t recommend them highly enough. Daisy shared so much of her own struggles with the group and gave some fantastic strategies for dealing with issues. I have a young horse who I am bringing on, and her advice has been invaluable. Even several months after completing the course, I look back at my notes and use the strategies so I keep moving forward. When I had a wobble, she was able to speak to me and talk me through ways of dealing with my problems. On Kelly’s course, I felt I was beginning to understand why he was behaving in certain ways and adapt my behaviour accordingly, using what I had learned. There was so much to take in and so many new ideas as to how horses think that helped me be more patient and understanding with him. Kelly and Sandra even stayed behind one evening to give me some personal advice. This summer, after doing both courses, I have finished with my horse and myself having a much happier partnership and a huge amount of trust between us. I feel I am making better decisions for him and thinking about what he would say if he could speak to me. I just hope that one day soon I can also go to Hartsop Farm for a face to face course. I can’t thank you all enough for your help and for everything you do to improve our relationship with our horses.

Just returned from a Perfect Manners course at Hartsop Farm. Have to say it was the most enjoyable weekend with Kelly, Sandra and everyone who attended the course. Being quite anxious about going on my own and being of a "certain Age", I was soon put at ease. Everyone is so friendly. The course itself is put over in such a way that you all get time to benefit from the lessons, nothing is rushed and everything is explained in an easy to understand way. Nothing is too much trouble. Well done Kelly and the IH team x

I cannot express how valuable it has been to me as a rider, horse lover and curious individual to join Intelligent Horsemanship. They are not “just” another equestrian organisation, In my opinion IH is a compassionate and non-judgemental, empirical evidenced based movement that embraces all abilities and disciplines from complete beginners to equestrian professionals. The experience and warmth as well as professionalism, knowledge and tailored approach to ones individual needs brings the calibre of their team into class of their own. Wherever you are at on your journey and with your passion for horses, attend one of their courses and experience the sentiment for yourself.
