IH Trainer, Bridget Colston has been a Trainer for IH since 2010, and is also an Enlightened Equitation coach. She aims to guide owners to better relationships with their horses through an understanding of how our horses see and perceive the world. Despite being a behaviour trainer Bridget believes that true ‘behavioural problems’ are pretty rare and that most problems we experience with our horses are a result of physical, mental or emotional discomfort that the horse is communicating through it’s behaviour. At the heart of her training is an awareness of ‘self’ and how deeply, how we show up can impact our horses.
