Natural Horsemanship in the heart of Andalucía

Welcome to Finca Hiedra, home to The Natural Horsemanship Association of Coín, nestled in the beautiful and breathtaking countryside of La Jara, which is situated just outside of Coín, near Málaga and the Costa del Sol. Dawn and Jeff Mason are the proud owners of this beautiful finca and natural horse centre. Since buying their finca their dream of creating a Natural Horsemanship Centre in Spain became reality, but only after much hard work and dedication.

Natural Horsemanship

Parelli Natural Horsemanship Professional Freddy Verleyen with PrincipeHumans are predators by nature, the ultimate predator because of our reasoning ability and tool skills. Horses are prey animals. So how can two naturally incompatible species form positive successful relationships?

Horses are not afraid of predators, they are afraid of predatory behaviour. So by understanding the behaviour of horses and behaving less like a predator, the human can create an unbelievable relationship with the horse.
