I know very good natural horsemanship trainers. I myself have learned from a natural horsemanship trainer per excellence, Ed Dabney, a trainer of highest integrity and one of the best horsemen I have ever met, who shared his knowledge and love of the horse with me generously and with an open heart and who I will always hold in high esteem.

Tatiana Kiselyova

Years of lessons, different trainers and a myriad of horses have not taught me nearly what I learned from you in just three days. These tools for communication and respect have proven effective even in a short time since the clinic.
