Horse Follow Closely – Native American Horsemanship

by GaWaNi Pony Boy & photos by Gabrielle Boiselle.

GaWaNi Pony Boy is mixed blood native American and after attending college, spent 3 years travelling the US with a Native American drum group performing on weekends at various universities, cultural events and pow wows. During these on the road years he was able to compile the ideas, methods and techniques contained in this book. By seeking the advice and council of tribal elders from many different nations and backgrounds, he was better able to understand the beliefs and methods used by the nation’s first great horsemen.
By weaving the ‘old ways’ with his own already successful training methods, Pony has developed ‘Relationship Training’ . When not writing, he can be found presenting clinics and seminars throughout the world in an effort to help people get more enjoyment from the companionship of the horse, and on a deeper level, to help people have a better understanding of our relationship with all things.
Horse and rider are one. Theirs is a relationship of trust, harmony and respect born of a way of life that is all but lost. In this magnificent book, GaWaNi Pony Boy illustrates the traditional training methods that are steeped in the common sense and age old wisdom of his ancestors.
The stunning full colour photos and simple eloquence takes us back to the days when horse training was not merely about getting results but about creating a bond for life.
An inspiration ofr riders and a feast for horse and native American enthusiasts, Horse, Follow Closely forges a relationship with readers that few books can ever hope to achieve.

    I trained with Pony Boy in 2004 and have lost track of what he is doing. Can you tell me what he has been doing lately?

      I’m not sure either Mary, perhaps google can help? Hope you can re-connect.
