RE has been described as a horse's trainer with an emphasis on the horse. RE does not normally work in an atmosphere of cheers and applause, but in a quiet, calm and often relaxing setting where horse and trainer communicate using the natural postures provided by nature. In conversations RE will tell you that seeing a horse lower his head and lick his lips far exceed the ovations of people when it comes to personal satisfaction.

He points out many people treat their horse like china dolls sitting on a shelf rather than athletic animals who enjoy hard work and being used in a variety of activities. The lack of training creates a lack of confidence on the part of the owner and the horse's life is not as rewarding as it could be if balance, confidence and control were a part of the everyday relationship between horse and rider. As you enter the world of hackamore training, you will find that as you teach you learn and when you have learned to use your horse to the best of its ability, that your time in the saddle is the best time of the day.
