In 2002, Jason decided to settle in the UK and set up his business, Australian Horsemanship, at Risebridge Farm – the family farm of his future wife, Penny. It has gone from strength to strength, now handling over 200 horses a year, and employing nine full and part-time members of staff.
The horses come from professional riders, studs and private owners nationwide and he regularly receives referrals from vets, farriers, equine dentists and other equestrian professionals. We are dedicated to finding the solutions to all behavioural problems.
The list is ever expanding, but they include;
- Foot handling
- General Manners
- Traffic Shy
- Excitability at Competitions
- Control Issues
Jason has a remarkable ability to re-educate the most dangerous or unhandled horses and regularly receives referrals from vets, farriers, training yards, instructors and professional riders including Olympians! He is often seen as a ‘last chance’ for horses that have been recommended by vets to be euthanised.
Jason always starts with his basic groundwork, gaining respect and control of the horse on the ground and laying the foundations for work under saddle. Over the years, Jason has developed some unique solutions to various problems that have been tried and tested to ‘reprogram’ the horse’s reactions to certain situations.
