One of the most rewarding things about working with horses is their talent for teaching us something new every single time we work with them. We constantly learn from each other, reflecting each other.
Chase's knowledge and experience allows him to see both what you are saying to your horse and what your horse is saying to you. If the lines of communication have become confused, Chase teaches the rider a clear set of cues, and educates the horse to understand and to respond to these cues, without hesitation or doubt.
In any working partnership, trust, confidence and respect are key to success. Chase instils these values in the horse from the moment he begins to work. You will be amazed at what you will achieve.
Your horse will not just be given two or three sessions a week. Training happens all day long, including learning to stand tied, to be polite around feeding time, and to be respectful of personal space.
A note on "Natural Horsemanship"
There are many trainers out there who claim to use Natural Horsemanship. This is a loose term, and it is often misused through a lack of understanding about how the horse thinks. It can lead to the horse being unfairly punished in the name of discipline, or being overly spoiled by good intentions.
Chase has known horses his whole life, and his ability to read a horse is an impressive thing to witness. Perhaps more impressive is his ability to talk to the horse in terms that he understands - can there be anything more natural than that?
Be wary of trainers who do not take lessons for themselves, yet class themselves as "professionals". Chase has studied horsemanship of all types over the years, from the old-fashioned "cowboy way" right through to classical English horsemanship, and he continues to study so that he can better serve the horses he works with. You will often find him at clinics of various disciplines, either as a participant or an observer, looking for the best way to get the most from every horse.
