  • In this latest DVD offering of vintage footage, Tom directs Bryan Neubert in the starting of two young horses at one of his clinics. Tom offers suggestions for Bryan and comments on what he sees is taking place. He mentions several times that the learning that will take place for people will be when they go home and spend time with their own horses; the clinic is an opportunity to be exposed to some new ideas. We hope that this footage will offer you some exposure to new ideas and that you can incorporate into your approach to horses a part of Tom’s unique ability to see what was taking place within horses and people together with some of his patience and humor. Next Harry Whitney rides a horse through obstacles: tires on the ground and a bridge. This will expose you to a way to approach obstacles and an idea of the learning that can take place when approaching something new. The DVD closes with a conversation between Tom and Harry about “approaches.”  Listen and think about the situations they are visiting about. You will find some great gems in their exchanges. Enjoy this opportunity to spend some time with Tom. We are sure this exposure to his way of teaching and helping people and horses will give you some good ideas to blend into your life. Viewer Note: There are moments of sound and video that are less than perfect. For true students of horsemanship those moments can hardly distract from the learning taking place with the horses and students. Please enjoy these teachable moments with Tom.

Safety and efficiency are high on his priority list along with developing a confident and willing horse in the process. He studies people and their relationships with their horses and puts it together with his experience from working with livestock to come up with a confidence-building agenda to prepare the horse and the person for whatever their needs are. He borrows whatever he can from whomever he can without prejudices of discipline or breed, as long as it follows his principles and works for the horse.
  • Book: Evidence-Based Horsemanship is based on the Scientist-Practitioner Model. It was developed out of a collaboration between Martin Black and Dr. Stephen Peters who felt that the public and their horses needed a source of accurate information. “Real information” gathered by observation, tested in the field and validated by science. Evidence-Based Horsemanship involves assessing and integrating scientific findings to inform decisions and to create “best practices ” in all areas of horse training and care based on empirical outcomes (i.e., what “works”). It allows us to ask the question, “What does our current scientific knowledge of the horse, when applied and empirically observed, show me about getting the best outcomes possible for me and the horse?” DVD: Exploring Evidence-Based Horsemanship is the perfect compliment to the book Evidence-Based Horsemanship. It touches on the EBH foundation while delving deeper into the principles presented in the book. Dr. Peters and Martin Black show examples, discuss neurochemicals not presented in the book, and introduce the Evidence-Based Horsemanship Pyramid. In this DVD, you will learn about new scientific discoveries that can directly benefit all horses and horse owners. About Evidence-Based Horsemanship  It’s not uncommon to see certain behaviors in our horses that raise questions. Or, we’ve all heard certain myths being propagated as truths throughout the horse community. Evidence-Based Horsemanship is working to dispel those myths and answer the “whys” behind horse behavior. Dr. Stephen Peters, a neuropsychologist who specializes in brain functioning, teamed up with fifth-generation horseman and internationally known clinician Martin Black to write and collaborate on Evidence-Based Horsemanship. EBH, as it’s commonly called, combines Peters’ understanding of brain function with Black’s keen observation of subtle horse behavior to create “best practices” in all areas of horse training and care.
