The 2013 NHE International Seminar was hosted by Cloé Lacroix Dean of the online School and Michael Bevilacqua NHE senior Representative and author of the book ‘’Beyond the Dream Horse’’. They presented the main philosophy behind NHE which is to treat the horse with respect and to level the playing field. That is to view the horse as an equal without any notion of dominance that is so commonly perpetuated in the horse world. The main objective was to help people realize that the only ‘method’ required was to find a way to become understandable to the horse. Participants were supplied with basic guidelines and rules that could help them answer any questions or doubts about whether they were proceeding correctly when interacting with a horse on their own.
