Cobar hosted a week long Quantum Savvy Horsemanship Beginners Workshop at Dalton Park Horse Complex.
Quantum Savvy certified trainer Shane Ransley led six students and their horses through a variety of exercises over the week.
Mr Ransley said the aim of the workshop is to refine horsemanship skills.
“At the end of each session we get together and discuss what worked well and share what was successful, so we can learn from each other’s success,” he said.
Mr Ransley said the workshop is about not only educating the horse but to also the horseman.
“Quantum Savvy does workshops like this around Australia to keep horsemanship skills moving forward and developing.
“This is an opportunity to break out of the everyday routine and learn something new,” he said.
Mr Ransley said the majority of the horses involved in week long beginners workshop were fresh.
“We try and teach people about training horses as a process rather than breaking them in, in a hurry.
Mr Ransley was also accompanied by Quantum Savvy certified trainers Mog Davies from the Wilcannia area, local Jillian Prince and Mel Peacock from Victoria.
“People come from all over Australia to participate in the workshops, when they get the chance,” he said.
Mr Ransley said a workshop like this happens twice a year and the skills learnt can be applied to your chosen horse sport.
