"Dawn Bonin has helped me so much with my Standardbred, Ironworkers DJ, in a remarkably few number of lessons...The one rein stop works, and Dawn is patient enough to keep pointing this out in a calm and helpful way. I've owned horses for 24 years, and it's humbling to realize that after all that time, I can still manage to ride ineffectively. Luckily, Dawn has come along, so at long last I can turn the trend around. I've told my husband she's probably saved my life. Without her help, it's very possible DJ and I would be bolting across the countryside, headed for a wreck."...continued

Natural Horsemanship is a method of relating to and communicating with horses. Communicating using pressure and the release of pressure. Learning how to understand the horse's body language. Working, training and riding in a way that complements the horse's personality and instincts.
As a horse trainer and instructor I teach horses and people in a way they can understand and help them communicate better with each other.
