Pam Tanner is a Natural Horsemanship Trainer and Clinician whose main focus is on relationship-based training with focus on the emotional well being of the horse and herd dynamics to create a trusting relationship and a healthy and safe environment. Methods used are based on natural herd behavior, with leadership as your foundation. It is from this place that your horse can more easily understand what is being communicated to him, resulting in the trust and confidence needed to learn quickly and effectively without the need for mechanical devices or force.
Many come who have lost the confidence they once had, where the dream became the nightmare. Pam offers lessons with both your horse and hers to regain that confidence, giving life once again to that dream with new knowledge (which is power) and renewed trust.
Pam rides and trains in both the English and Western disciplines. She spent many years traveling the country and working with famous Natural Horsemanship trainers and clinicians, names easily recognized as well as some that are not. She cannot give any one trainer credit for her methods as she feels that every one of them have contributed to her success with horses over the years. When asked today Pam says "I can say with conviction that the horse has given me what no trainer ever could. Nothing replaces the insight and intuitiveness that comes from working with so many horses over these many years." Pam also believes there is not any one special method that is appropriate for every horse. "Each horse (as with people) is an individual and should be treated as such." She believes the method used should suit the personality and sensitivity of that particular horse. For instance, a certain method used on a disrespectful, stubborn and lazy horse would be inappropriate for a very sensitive, fearful horse. Every horse is assessed as an individual and a program tailored to suit that individual horse.
Pam has her training operation in beautiful Louisburg, NC at the Double D Equestrian Center offering 800 acres of beautiful trails (open to the public for a small fee), spacious pastures, large 16' z 20' stalls and both indoor and outdoor arenas. Double D is convenient to Raleigh and surrounding areas as well as Virginia.
