Susan Rainbird

A Selection of Testimonials

"Susan is very good at reading the horse and seeing the small things that are important to horses, and she can explain why such and such is happening and often a very small change in the way of handling the horse can make a world of difference. Susan’s approach provides the building blocks of a good foundation for the relationship with your horse in which the horse accepts your leadership and from that, your ideas. It works!"

“The moment I met Susan and her lovely bay boys I could see that she had a deep understanding of horses. How they think and behave with each other and us was so very obviously her passion that it became immediately clear to me that this person was going to help me get over a long suffered fear of horses. I didn’t realize at the time how sharing her knowledge with me would change my life for the better......."

"I’ve had the pleasure of attending several of the Herd Dynamic talks given by Susan. They give a fascinating insight into how horses behave and interact with each other in the herd situation. The way she talks about horses is refreshing as she seems to look at things totally from the horses point of view, which in this day and age is rare, and in turn helps us the owners to have a better knowledge of how to behave when we are with them. She has given me lots of new ideas of how to just ‘be’ with my horses,to overcome certain difficulties and to have overall better communication with them."

Di Clayton, France

"To me the most interesting part of Susan’s work is that it shows how such relatively small changes in the way we handle our horses on the ground can make such huge changes in our relationships and the way they see us, leading on to great advances in the ridden partnership – Observation is the key and that is where Susan really does have the skill and experience to see what is happening and where changes could be made."
