Beth Gibbons, Equine Behaviourist, is offering sharer opportunities as part of The Positive Herd Project.
Rescued Appaloosas Molly and Reno are both looking for sharers to help with their training and riding.
This share is the ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about ethical and kind approaches to horse management, handling, training and riding. It offers the sharer a unique opportunity to facilitate their own horse's recovery through positive reinforcement training.
The Positive Herd Project has been set up to provide a group of rescue horses with a permanent, more natural way of life. All of the horses have come from various pasts of neglect or abuse, many as a last chance. These horses will never be rehomed and the project works to ensure they remain together in a fulfilling, relaxed environment for the rest of their life. The horses are all trained and handled using kind, ethical and positive techniques.
As part of this share you will get the opportunity to facilitate your own horse’s therapy, supported by Beth. You will have the responsibility and flexibility to set your own goals and pace. Whether your ambition is to ride a dressage test or simply to be able to brush and care for your horse, it’s your own journey. The facilities at our beautiful new premises are outstanding, including a private ménage which you will be able to utilise.
Here you will also learn how to look after the herd as a whole and have the responsibility of helping with their upkeep and care. This is an all-encompassing agreement, so expect to be involved with tack cleaning, farrier visits and other care activities.
This is the perfect opportunity for someone who would like their own horse but perhaps does not have the knowledge, time or money. It suits someone who is willing to learn new, kind techniques, gain valuable experience and whose focus is on horse care as a whole and not just on riding. For someone who wants experience and support towards doing it themselves this is ideal.
It would not suit someone who wants to move the horses off premises, whose focus is completely on riding or competing or who wants to use harsher techniques.
The share supports the costs of keeping these horses in this environment, such as premises, food, hay, vet checks, wormers etc. It also includes guidance and 1:1 support from Beth regarding care, training and handling of your horse. As part of the share you are also entitled to riding lessons from our BHSAI riding instructor. A contribution of £30.00 a week is asked to cover the costs of your horse's care.
The yard is located in Burland, Nantwich.
