Horse Ownership: Responsible, Sustainable, Ethical

About Equiculture

Horse Ownership - Responsible, Sustainable and Ethical starts with knowledge. Being as knowledgeable as you can, means that you can be a better rider and take better care of your horse/s. This website is a resource and a learning tool for responsible horse people – people like you.

The Equicentral System

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.


The Horse Rider's Mechanic

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.


Responsible horse care

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.


Equiculture Testimonials

"The damage/stress we cause to our horses by micro managing every aspect of their lives. It's not until you give them freedom of choice that you realise how restrictive and contrived their previous existence was. A real eye opener when they suddenly become relaxed/happy and all you've done is allow them to decide what they do and when."

Cleo Collins (UK)

"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'."

Julie Spencer USA

"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."

Tracey Woods, Aus
