Seeing Through the Eyes of the Horse
Nancy (Smith) Kasovich's life with horses and what she has to share from eighty years of riding, training and living. Her early years were spent watching and riding with top horsemen of all disciplines in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was from an era when training was an art which was acknowledged to take time and patience in order to develop a finished horse. "Early lessons of learning to see through the eyes of the horse shaped my future approach in training, (and living.) Learning what makes the horse happy, not just what makes the horse perform, is a very important key to successful training. Training is the development of the horse's mind and will. Simplicity is what makes a good horseman. Training is applied for the horse's development and not for the sake of the trainer's ego."

About Susan Eoff
Susan Eoff grew up with Nancy as a mentor and, following a global career path as a professional dressage trainer, continued to stay in touch with her. Susan's relentless search for humane training techniques in the modern age of sport riding led her to the European based classical riding and training system which would have been more familiar to the horsemen Nancy grew up with.
