Equido® Horsemanship was developed just over ten years ago by Morag and Mark Higgins as a way to pass on the ethos and principles of horsemanship as taught by Mark Rashid. His philosophy on horse work was applied to all aspects of horse care and this was combined with the Morag and Mark’s wealth of equestrian knowledge gained over a combined 60yrs of working with and competing horses.
Equido® aims to bring to the student a deeper understanding and meaning to their partnerships with horses and was purposely created as a qualification with the information broken down into four levels with each level delivered in a modular format. To date over 500 students have enrolled through the qualification, covering the UK and Europe with the number of students growing from 5 in 2007 to over 60 in 2017. We now have 8 qualified practitioners across the UK and Europe.
Everything in Equido® is taken from the horse’s point of view and in order to enhance and illustrate what we practise we have written the first book in our series. Unlike many other training books Equido® Horsemanship, The Path of Least Resistance offers a step by step illustrated guide to carrying out the exercises covered. It aims to offer the reader a horse’s viewpoint on the work that is being asked of them and it explains the holistic approach with a network of different professionals who work to keep the working horse happy and sound.
“I have known Mark and Morag Higgins for many years now, probably more than any of us would care to remember. During that time, not only have we become dear friends, but also mutual students of each other and of the horses. The work that Mark and Morag do with horses and people comes from the heart, always keeping the best interest of both in mind as they move forward. Coming from the heart is a good place to begin because it determines where you end up…with horses that are quiet, willing and happy. As always, my hat is off to my dear friends and their work developing and honing the art of Equido®, with which they have positively touched many horses and riders, and which, with this book, they will no doubt touch many, many more!” Mark Rashid
