PROFESSIONAL FOAL HANDLING

Combining this with his ability to pass on information and empower you to continue the work he has started a foal handling experience that may be one of the best investments you can make into your horse’s life.

FLOAT TRAINING

As a young man, Bryan competed in a variety of disciplines. Showjumping, eventing, endurance, showing & hunting. Although it was the refinement and athleticism of dressage that really captured Bryans’ heart and became his passion.

 

Bryan began horse training full time in the 1990s and during this time, had the opportunity to do a clinic with Pat Parelli. The information that Pat imparted to Bryan was such a quantum leap in knowledge that  he pursued the Parelli program for the next six years and achieved level three in Parelli Natural Horsemanship. Building on this as a foundation, Bryan learnt from and continues to learn from many other horsemen. Over the years Bryan has worked with and drawn influence from Ken Faulkner, Ray Hunt, Monty Roberts, Martin Black and Tom Dorrance.
