Learn The Simple Truths of Horse Behaviour and Build a Better Relationship With Your Horse

Neil Davies standing with horse

Hi from Neil Davies
Dear fellow horse lover,

  • Would you like to better understand your horse?
  • Would you like to learn how to overcome problems like tying up catching, shying, leg handling and trailering?
  • Have you tried “popular methods” but all you achieved was resistance and fear?
  • Would you rather build your horse’s confidence so that he trusts you 100%?

If you answered yes to any of these questions,
you've come to the right place.

I've dedicated my life to understanding and training horses and now you can take advantage of my knowledge and experience.

Believe me, I’ve seen it all, from $100 backyard ponies to thoroughbreds worth millions. I've handled thousands of so-called bad, mad and wild horses over the past half century.

My knowledge is original and unique. It’s not something I read or saw or copied from someone else. I know what I know from working with so many horses, day after day, month after month and year after year.

I Know What Makes Horses Tick

People say my approach "works like magic". But there's no magic to it—I simply see everything from the horse's point of view and build confidence one step at a time.

I'm not special and I don’t have a special gift. Anyone can do what I do. If you truly love your horses and want to treat them in a kinder way, all you need are the right beliefs and the right tools.

This website has been created to share my approach with horse lovers around the world.

My mission is to share my unique philosophy of horse training—a philosophy of reward instead of punishment, of co-operation instead of domination, of trust instead of fear, and above all, a philosophy where you and your horse learn and grow together.

You Don’t Need to be an Expert

Even with limited experience, you can follow my philosophy and achieve amazing things with your horse.

Since 1989, I've sold thousands of books and videos to people like you.
Here's some feedback I've received along the way:

Mr. Davies, thank you. I have read and re-read your book, studied your videos, and contemplated your philosophy and vision. Thank you, for me and for my horses. I've seen the rest, but no one, and I mean no one, does what you do. The difference in my horses speaks volumes for you as well. Your book is a welcome and needed revelation and revolution in horse training and relationships.

The money I invested in the Starting a Horse Under Saddle Online Clinic is proving to be one of the best things I have ever done to help me become a better horseman. You may not realize that your quiet, calm, steady demeanor not only positively impacts the horse, but also the human who is just as worried. I thank you for your efforts and look forward to my future lessons.

I enrolled in your Starting a Horse Under Saddle Online Clinic. For the last few weeks, I've used your method to work with my Gypsy Vanner, Pistol, who is a 3 year old gelding. I'm so pleased with how fast he is learning and how I, now, recognize when he is "worried" versus when he doesn't "understand". For the most part, he's catching on and is compliant.

I've signed up for 3 other training type video series in the last few years and YOURS is the only one I've stuck with. The others made no logical sense to me and were too showy.

I'm so very happy that I stumbled upon your website via Facebook! You're the real deal, Mr Davies and I am very appreciative that I am finally getting an authentic clue.
