Or log in to access your purchased courses

Do you own a horse, have the opportunity to interact with horses, or simply love horses?

Are you interested in seeing how a connected relationship with a horse can be built by making requests and responding in safe, predictable ways while appropriately applying the Natural Lifemanship principles?

In this series of 19 videos, NL co-founders, Tim Jobe and Bettina Shultz-Jobe, demonstrate the Natural Lifemanship process while building a connected and cooperative partnership with their rescue horse, Frieda. Through this series of demonstrations, in which the relationship is progressively built and strengthened, the nuances of the Natural Lifemanship connection principles are taught.

As with our other online courses and videos, they are FREE to Natural Lifemanship Members! If you have an active Natural Lifemanship Membership at either the Basic or Professional level, simply visit our online learning page to view the entire video series. Learn more or become a member.
