The science of Animal Behaviour

Using positive reinforcement methods, all based on Behavioural science, to build solid, safe, happy and calm horses. This opens up a line of pure communication with their horses and uses no pain, pressure or force. We help all owners to be able to have a great relationship with their horse when they go home.

Horse training yard specializing in starting young horses, re training ex racehorses, solving behavioural issues and improving relationships

All your horse training needs can be provided by us

Established in 1985, Melanie Watson and her dedicated team will help you reach your wish list with your horse. Everyone needs help sometimes when communication breaks down and your horse spirals out of control, for whatever reason. Melanie will assess your needs, the reasons behind the undesired behaviour and provide a structured training programme to bring your relationship back to safe, calm and harmonious.
Please always feel free to ring Melanie on 07720758425 anytime to talk. Sometimes advice and support is all that is needed.
Melanie will travel to your yard if needed or your horse will come in for a few weeks of intensive training.
We include the owners as much as you can spend time with us here at the yard. Investing in you and your skillset is paramount to success when you go back home with your horse.

Demonstrations & Appearances

Melanie happily accepts invitations to demonstrate her ways of training. She will run training days for clubs and will teach groups or private lessons alike.

Horse Breaking

Horse breaking for horses of any age to be happy being handled, tied up, transported, treated by a vet or handled by the farrier is vital and sets them up well for their futures in work. For me it is the best part of horse training.

Problem Horse Training

The main specialty of this yard is problem horse training; this involves retraining a whole range of problem horses. From unadulterated aggression to pure panic. Knapping, rearing, bucking and generally backward thinking to the opposite - running away, pa

Retraining of Racehorses

Retraining of racehorses and racehorse rehabilitation is mainly to de-stress the horse. As a racehorse they are completely different to a pet horse and only understand two commands - stop and go.
