AMT Equestrian Services offer a range of Horsemanship services for riders and horse owners of all levels and disciplines.
Visit WWW.AMTEQUESTRIAN.NET.AU for all the details.
Private lessons are a great way to receive the support and structure required to succeed on your horsemanship journey. We don’t just teach horsemanship, we care about what is important to you and your horse and an important part of private coaching includes goal setting and identifying any blocks that may be holding you back from achieving your dreams with your horse.
Group lessons are a fun and supportive enviornment in which to build your confidence and skills. Invite your friends to join you for a horsemanship lesson and receive a group discount. Groups are kept to a maximum of 4 people to ensure that every horse and rider receive plenty of attention.
HORSEMANSHIP DEVELOPMENT DAYS
We host monthly Horsemanship Development Days for all level of riders and handlers. Learn the tools you need to communicate softly and safely with your horse in a supportive group environment. Ridden places are limited to ensure plenty of one on one time with students so book in early each month if you would like to join us.
WHAT MAKES ANDREW DIFFERENT FROM OTHER INSTRUCTORS?
Andrew Turnbull is a unique horseman and individual. He might look like a ‘cowboy’ but Andrew is far from traditional. Combining the art of horsemanship as pioneered by Tom and Bill Dorrance with modern science focusing on biomechanics and horse health, Andrew works with an open heart, seeking that ultimate connection and feel between horse and human that lies beyond words.
Through a deep desire to improve horse welfare, Andrew’s goal is to share his knowledge and insights with likeminded individuals, with the goal of making the world a better place for horses and humans. For the past 10 years, Andrew has been travelling the world to work and train with some of the best horsemen and cattlemen who are committed to and practise true mastery in horsemanship.
In early 2017 Andrew was endorsed by Steve Halfpenny to become a Light Hands Equitation Instructor and young horse starter, with the emphasis of his teaching to create an understanding between horse and rider, developing trust and confidence right from the start.
Having developed a passion for the Vaquero style of horsemanship, Andrew enjoys teaching the applications of these traditions both in horsemanship and when working with cattle.
Andrew is increasingly focusing on tailoring his training and riding to the individual horse, based on conformation, biomechanics and potential issues stemming from past or current injuries of the horse that may be presenting as behavioural or training difficulties. This has inspired Andrew to pursue further studies and mentors who specialise in equine biomechanics and soundness.
Andrew works in tandem with equine health professionals to ensure the health and welfare of all horses who come to AMT Equestrian and when assessing horses for clients.
Andrew is one of the coaches of the Brookleigh Equestrian Centre Working Equitation Club where he teaches horsemanship and mechanical cow classes.
Lessons are available at our purpose built facilities in Gidgegannup or we are able to travel to you. If you are outside the Perth metro area contact us to arrange a regional visit for lessons or horsemanship clinics.
