Prior to attending this course my horses walked all over me. I've had tonnes of lessons both here and in Australia and in a short number of hours I was taught the most valuable lessons. I felt safe and in control of the relationship with my horse, a first for me!"


Rosemary showed us are not a one-off fix but an on-going way of life for you and your horse to enjoy. You wouldn’t believe the change in my boy and ME! I was able to enjoy my baby again... I’m hooked!


In 30 years of teaching I can honestly say that this is the most powerful learning outside of the classroom I have ever observed children engage with.


I can’t thank Rosemary enough...the learning’s from spending time with horses translates into other areas of our lives. They have much to offer in teaching us about ourselves.


My young horse, Praise, turned a big corner with her education and training during the Natural Horsemanship weekend at Dune Lakes Lodge. This was our first experience of riding 'bit less'. Praise seemed happy and relaxed without a bridle - and I certainly didn't have any difficulties with my communication with her.
