At Robin Bailey Horsemanship, we teach the owners how to effectively communicate goals, set boundaries and have your horse understand what the correct response is in any situation. Robin Bailey is more of a behaviorist than a traditional horse trainer who believes owners must understand the importance of learning how to read their horse’s body language, reactions and responses correctly in order to achieve a true partnership.
People seek the help of Robin Bailey Horsemanship for many different reasons; for some, it is to rid their horse of unwanted behaviors such as aggression, bucking, rearing, kicking, biting or spooking. Other clients may be looking for a more effective partnership with their horse and be interested in improving their basic horsemanship skills, round penning, ground respect, liberty work, whole body riding and performance work.

As an equestrian, buying a new horse is one of the most stressful things we will do. We may be looking for a lifelong partnership, a new competition horse, a safe mount for our children, or any combo of the above. In buying a horse we want to be sure that we are making the right decision and picking the right horse.
Let Robin Bailey Horsemanship take away some of that stress for you.

She will discuss with you what type of horse you are looking for, the information you have about the horse you are looking at and will attend a viewing of the horse with you. Robin will work with, and if appropriate, ride the horse and give you a full assessment of its temperament and abilities and if it is a suitable match for you.
This simple step will help you weed out the truth and fiction of the potential new horse. A good match of horse and rider is the most important part of owning a horse. You both need to start out on the right hoof!
