South Central U.S.:
Shootfire Ranch of Texas - Curt Moore, utilizes the Natural Horsemanship approach of "Willing Communication between Horse and Human" which emphasizes: "Making the right things easy and the wrong things difficult". Students learn to build a foundation one step at a time with each step overlapping the previous one, building on what the horse and student have already learned. Students learn to approach the training process slowly and taking plenty of time with their horse, staying within their abilities, using common sense and knowing that safety is always first.
