A gentler approach..

Brian Sinnett has been a horseman and agriculturalist all his life and has been surrounded by horses and cattle for the past 70 years. From a family of horseman his experience is extensive having worked with many horses and their owners from starting, training, dealing with problem horses, training for competition to developing the most functional and adaptable working horses for agricultural tasks. Having travelled extensively throughout USA/Canada during his life Brian has met many a horsemen and is always the first to say “you never stop learning even at my age!” He teaches and practices his form of Passive Horsemanship an equitation which he has developed over the past 30 years. His approach is far more empathetic to both a horses mental and physical state and attains a level of control and natural movement through a passive invitation.

    "Passive Horsemanship is not an equitational style, it is a control that is accepted as a state of mind in both horse and rider where a mutualism has been generated for both parties, to work together as a working relationship or symbiosis". Brian Sinnett - Passive Horsemanship

    "For what the horse does under compulsion, as Simon also observes, is done without understanding; and there is no beauty in it either, any more than if one should whip and spur a dancer. There should be a great deal more ungracefulness than beauty in either a horse or a man that was so treated. No, he should show off all his finest and most brilliant performance willingly and at a mere sign". Xenophon 430 BC. Translation 'The Art of Horsmanship' by M.H. Morgan PHD
