Brittany’s journey with horses started at age twelve by just hanging out with horses and observing them for hours. She started her first horse in a round pen with no one around – quietly working alone with that horse – no words, just being together. Through years of study, Brittany has advanced to working with people and horses with what she calls Innate Horsemanship™ which is a way of putting people and horses on the same page, talking the same language, Equine Lingo™.
Brittany has studied and trained with the some well known horsemen and women, including Monty Roberts, Buck Brannaman, Craig Cameron and John Lyons, and has learned that it’s the ability to observe a horse’s reaction both physically and emotionally that is the most important pathway to understanding how to communicate with horses. By developing a harmonious and natural relationship with each horse – by offering guidance, encouragement and consistency - the horse learns to follow based on mutual trust and respect through effective communication and leadership.
