The Equicentral System is a method of sustainable horse and land management, developed for the needs of the 21st century domesticated horse, their owner and the land on which they live. A healthy horse needs to live in a healthy, sustainable environment. Healthy Land = Healthy Pasture = Healthy Horse = Happy Owner.
Your position and balance when riding are fundamental to riding well. These subjects are often brushed over or ignored altogether yet without good position and balance you cannot have an 'independent seat'. The Horse Rider's Mechanic looks at this issue in detail and shows you how to improve your riding – rapidly.
Everyone who owns or cares for horses should understand at least the basics of horse care and welfare - by having a horse you take on a ‘duty of care’. Good horse care is essential for the well-being of a horse, they rely on us completely to get it right. There is so much information about this subject, sometimes it can be difficult to know what is right.
"The Equiculture approach to everything horsey - from how you manage your horses to how you ride - has been a revelation for me. My horses have benefited so much. My partner also loves this approach and is now more involved in our improved horse 'lifestyle'."
"What an amazing wonderful woman, to have so much knowledge and to be able to impart it to the rider in such a small amount of time. Jane has a way of explaining that is in plain English and is simple enough for anyone to understand but gets the correct message across."
This article gives you an overview of what The Equicentral System is about and will get you started on your journey to becoming an 'equicentric happy grass farmer'.
