Papoose - 16.1hh Arab/ISH x Welsh Cob

Paps now is our TrainingHorse, Workshop Star, Therapy Horse, and I will share a little of his history with you here....  Gentle Horse Connection and Equine Self Selection

Paps joined us here at Exmoor Riding in 2010 at the age of 5years as an unbroken, unridden youngster  and through his years with us we have been an a wonderful journey of discovery with horse agility, in-hand work, free-schooling, close contact inhand work, dressage and riding over the moor, and for showing us the way with holistic horse care and management, self selection herbs, essential oil therapies, and above all gentle connection.  


Paps today not only trains and works with anyone demonstrating how a gentle connection can manifest through into our riding, but also in training the new and young horses that enter our yard.


A wonderful journey of enlightenment, discovery and self-discovery resulting in a special collection of calm and happy healthy horses!  ..... and we are all still learning, meeting some amazing dedicated, inspirational and professional people ......  Now people come for all corners of the world to discover, explore and experience our way of working with our horses.  Some clients have jumped for joy when getting a connection with the horse, others have been in tears for the emotional release they experience, for 'finding' a connection with another being... the amazing understandng horses have of us, their human counterparts. 


Thank you Paps for sharing this enlightening journey with us all.  We love you.
