Teaching the Principals of Good Horsemanship

Learning to be good with horses takes time, patience and a knowledgable mentor. Steve has spent a lot of time developing his own horsemanship and now specialises in systematically teaching others the skills to develop confident riding horses. Join Steve at one of his live courses or check out his online courses on this site.

Steve Halfpenny is developing Light Hands Equitation with a mission to help as many people as possible around the world achieve extraordinary results with their horse. 

“True Unity” is the term used by Tom Dorrance to describe the connection that is possible between man and horse. This is an amazing feeling that is well worth the effort to attain. Steve aspires to always work towards this himself and to help others that have similar goals. Light Hands Equitation courses and education program are aimed at teaching people the principles of good horsemanship by developing Feel, Timing and Balance. Without an understanding of these principles “True Unity” is not possible. Steve’s training method delivers this training in steps that are easy for you and your horse to understand, ensuring that you and your equine partner grow together to enjoy this wonderful harmony.
