Adam Sutton: From cowboy to horseman. He’s not your run of the mill cowboy but he’s always got something quirky or funny to say . . . Adam has had over 24 years’ experience working with horses from riding unruly horses in rodeos, catching brumbies in the snowy mountains, campdrafting to now travelling around Australia teaching his methods of making connections through transitions for horses & riders from the basics to the more advance stages in all disciplines. Everything comes together though to form his own unique way of working with horses. “Based on the experience I’ve had with some of the finest horseman here and overseas, I’ve developed a systematic approach to horse training that works well for me. It is a system that allows each horse to develop suppleness and obedience in his own time. My approach involves eight separate steps and exercises that build upon each other. There’s no point expecting exercise three to work at 100 per cent if the horse is still only comfortably being 70 or 80 per cent effective with exercise two.” Sutton starts all his exercises on the ground so both horse and rider understand which zone controls what movements. Adam’s calm, caring, knowledgeable, fun personality allow him to communicate openly and freely with clients to help them build the confidence and restore trust they need to progress through the levels. I can be flexible on how I develop my horsemanship to my clients. I can develop better relationships with my clients slowly over time and watch them succeed together and through a harmonious balance to develop their confidence at their own pace. He has a great ability to understand people & horses and the processes involved with achieving their desired outcomes. He uses a more holistic approach to his training methods and can break down the barriers in a simple, and humorous way.
