IH Trainers

Intelligent Horsemanship Trainers

Intelligent Horsemanship (IH) Trainers are specialists in training and understanding horses, ponies, (donkeys and mules) young, old, ‘horses with problems’. These are the only people Intelligent Horsemanship recommend to assist with the training of other peoples’ horses.

Using established principles of horse psychology and equine behaviour together with years of experience this way of training has become increasingly popular. Sympathetic to both horses and humans our IH Trainers have helped horses and horse owners achieve a better understanding and achieve their full potential all around the world.

Whether you have a young foal or weanling that needs handling; a horse that needs saddling, long-reining or backing. Or a horse that hates the farrier or can’t be caught or be clipped. Do you have a horse that won’t load in a trailer or horsebox or needs schooling or help hacking out? You may not have a problem but would like some support and guidance to help you with continued success increasing your equine knowledge. We have equine specialists in all these areas. Do get in touch so one of our IH Trainers can provide you with a solution to get you heading in the right direction.

Trainers with a * means they are in their first 3 years of being an IH Trainer. Those with a 🏆 participate in our IH Awards.
