Herdword's versatile and practical equine educational courses are now tailor-made to your equestrian discipline, your area of interest and your individual needs. You'll train intensively with Jane over the duration of your course, observing, learning and then practicing the Herdword training principles. Your course work will be taken from the Herdword series that has been running in New Zealand since 2000. Read testimonials.
From 2011, there is a particular focus on starting and developing the young horses that have been bred at Wild Side Farms. These range from yearlings to unbroken four year olds, who have been raised in the most natural environment available, with as little influence from humans as possible. This provides you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience truly unspoilt horses being started.
Alongside this, work will continue on horses that have been accepted for psychological and/or physical rehabilitation. These characters are a product of their past experiences and offer you a learning experience that is a complete contrast.
Taken as a whole, a Herdword experience will deliver you an understanding of the horse's psyche that is as profound as you can make it.
You'll need to provide the dedication, attention to detail, appreciation for the subtle world of the horse and willingness to learn that will contribute to your success... Herdword will provide the tools that you need to produce happy, soft, willing horses.
Please contact us to discuss costs, which vary according to your individual requirements.
Your training will take place at the New Zealand Centre of Equine Psychology and Behaviour. Find out more.
A selection of NZQA credits in Equine Studies can accompany, or be incorporated into a package. These are funded for New Zealand residents.
