Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Jul 2, 2019

relationship based horsemanship

Relationship Based Horsemanship Mary Ann Brewer

The phrase that best describes Mary Ann Brewer's philosophy with her horses is "Relationship Based Horsemanship".  She founded her company, In the Company of Horses, to integrate equine-assisted therapy and learning to help people with a variety of problems.  She works with corporations and she works with people struggling with the loss of a loved one or people dealing with drug and alcohol problems.

Mary Ann developed her philosophy of relationship based horsemanship because she feels people need to be honest to the horse.  She tells people, "Your outside needs to match your inside".  Sometimes, she says, people have the belief that they must dominate their horse, even if they don't have a dominate personality.  According to relationship based horsemanship, it's okay to be who you really are.  And, Mary Ann tells us the horses really respond to this honesty.
