Great article about Bombproof Horsemanship in the Gainesville Register Friday February 24, 2012
Thank you for visiting! So what is Bombproof Horsemanship? The purpose is "NOT" to make your horse dull and non-responsive to you or their surroundings, in fact, it's the exact opposite! Horses should be EXTREMELY responsive to you and they need to develop trust in you to go where they are pointed. You should also have trust and confidence in your horse, and know they can safely take you from point A to point B, no matter what. Our entire program is based on teaching you how to teach your horse to do things literally "On Their Own" without having to be forced to do it.
I've heard people say if you want a place to train your horse to "stress" just sign up for the local parade, that's great training. Well, if you want a good experience; and you want your horse to have a good experience; and you want the patrons to have a good experience; and you want to look good too, that takes quite a bit of preparation. Wouldn't you like to know how your horse may react to situations such as this, before you do it? If so, then our program is just right for you!
Our goal is to teach your horse to pay attention to you, your body language and willingly negotiate obstacles without pressure. Our obstacles were developed from years of experience as a Mounted Police Officer riding through heavy traffic, large crowds, countless stressful situations and special events. You will definitely know your strengths and weaknesses along with your horses. Not everyone will be able to successfully negotiate every single obstacle at first, but some will. Most people are amazed by what their horse is able to do in just a short period of time.
