An inspiring and natural teacher, Sarah trains horses and their owners using logical and ethical techniques. Motivated by the welfare of the horse, her priority is to find a way to make it easy for the horse to do the right thing rather than to impose a set system and to give the owner the confidence to carry on in a similar way.

Sarah covers everything from the horse’s environment, physical and mental health to training methods and programmes and encourages owners to work with an open mind and an open heart.

Sarah’s Journal gives a dynamic account of the day to day work of an Intelligent Horsemanship Recommended Associate and reveals a genuine warmth and feel for horses and the people around them.

Amongst the numerous cases I have dealt with there have been horses that will not load, have refused to have their bridle on or to pick their feet up. One horse used to lie down in the trailer he was so frightened of travelling. Other horses have been difficult to ride, frightened of motorbikes or water. I have been able to help all of these horses. I also specialise in putting the first halter on wild ponies, teaching them to lead and to be handled. My methods are logical to the horse and involve the use of their own body language rather than the use of artificial aids.”

I feel a real weight has lifted from my shoulders and that I can now enjoy her … I feel so much more confident that I can make some decisions myself by just listening to her and also listening to my own gut feelings.”

    Sarah Hagedoorn
