I had been unable to find natural horsemanship techniques applied to driving until I ran across the videos of Nate Bowers. Hooray for driving with softness, lightness, and communication! But some of his techniques require a second person, and, regardless, it's nice to have other like-minded people learning along with you! So what's a person to do? Start a Meetup, that's what!
I'm not a driving instructor or trainer, and neither is anyone else in the group. We're all students at various stages of learning who are helping each other out. So, while we can show you a few basics to give you an idea of what we're working on, we are NOT here to teach you or train your horse—that's your job! We ARE here to help out when someone needs an extra set of hands and to give each other encouragement. (And if there is enough interest, we can work together to bring Nate Bowers out for a clinic.)
So, if you're interested in Nate Bowers' natural driving techniques, have a horse, live in the Willamette Valley, and would like some camaraderie, then please join us!
