Follow the journey of Peanut, a 4yr old chestnut mare that was given to Lindsey because she was too aggressive and would kick out at people.
We show you every session of her training, using no whips, no spurs, no bit - just a halter and rope to then get her started under saddle. Takes you through all of the calm connection exercises and all of the A, B, C's in a logical step by step program designed to develop trust and understanding with the horse.
See Harmony Horsemanship in action with Lindsey Partridge from start to finish. In just 6 sessions Peanut shows you all the calm connection exercises and ABCs on the ground, as well riding the ABCs, riding obstacles, and cantering.
Using the Fusion Halter (no bit or bridle) and a lead rope (no whip, spurs or crops). You get to see just how powerful positive reinforcement can be and how quickly Peanut turns into a power learner.
Lindsey says "Sometimes I work with bits, a whip or other tool, but in this series I wanted to use nothing other than a halter and rope just so I can show people how much we can accomplish with just ourselves. I find when we have whips, spurs, or bits we tend to forget how intimidating and overwhelming we can be, or we forget to make our body language clear because we're relying too much on the tool. When we take away the extra tools it forces us to become more aware and consistent."
