If you haven’t been following the amazing and talented Emma Massingale, then now is the time to start!
Emma is an award-winning horse trainer, specializing in Training at Liberty. This means she only uses her body language and vocal commands to train horses. She is also the first British person to have developed a language that is understood by horses. Emma can communicate with herds of horses at anyone time. They carry out complex exercises and maneuvres while working as a team.
When Cavallo heard about Emma’s dedication to natural horsemanship, we knew we had to get involved! Cavallo provided Emma with Trek Boots to use during her training to help protect her horses’ hooves and keep them naturally barefoot. This also allowed her to use them on more challenging terrains. Emma’s theory is to focus on not only turning negative situations with problem horses into positive ones, but also be able to create something really special.
Emma Massingale – Unleashed in the Highlands
Emma recently completed a trip across the Scottish Highlands with two ponies, Hector and Hewie, that were only three-years-old. Before she purchased these two beautiful ponies, they were completely untrained upon the incredible journey. She planned to develop a bond between the two ponies across a 61 mile trek from Alness to Ullapool. It started with the ponies being in halters and lead ropes, unsure of the situation. By the end of the trip, with thousands of acres to run away to, Hector and Hewie were left free and kept close to Emma.
Emma Massingale’s personal ethos being “No Reins…No Rules…No limits!! Simply for the love of horses!”
