Touching The Wild Heart Of Horses

A vibrant online community combined with education and insights into the world of horses


 Through The Eyes Of A Horse: beta online course!

This is my way of sharing the valuable insights and information that I’ve gathered over the years as an equine professional with extensive field experience (literally!), and during my current Equine Science MSc studies.

I'll provide you with tangible ways of meeting your horse where they are.  We will help them feel safe so that both your lives and theirs are enriched and and you can build the relationship you’ve dreamed of with your horse. 

The course provides a shift in perspective. You will begin to see and appreciate who horses are — The Equine Blueprint —  in a more nuanced and meaningful way, enabling you to handle, train, and care for your horses in the best possible way.

"A glance at Bonny's complete commitment to learning about and understanding the horse, and her enormous depth of knowledge and experience in finding ways of working which respect and blend with the innate characteristics of an animal which so often is misunderstood and imposed upon. Bonny is a remarkable lady and it was a privilege to meet and study with her."   – Ann Currie, MSc
