"I was attracted to Tim and Bettina Jobe’s Natural Lifemanship approach to equine assisted psychotherapy because it bridges the gap between the methods that rely totally on the use of groundwork and methods that focus primarily on mounted horsemanship. Natural Lifemanship is all about the relationship between the human and…
