Tony Hart Sponsored Rider.
Tony is an advocate of natural horsemanship, and has developed his own proven program for all breeds of horses.
Born and raised in Brisbane, at the early age of 14 Tony found himself working part time at a local stud in Warwick Queensland. This was organised by his Uncle Lex, a stock inspector.
Tony continued to pursue his love and dedication to horses which led him to employment as a Jackaroo on several stations in Northern Queensland. As he worked alongside traditional horse beakers and trainers, he soon began to develop his own style. He further studied many horsemanship methods and followed respected mentors.
From the Ground Up:
Tony has developed his own horsemanship program, “From the Ground Up” which is a proven starting method for all breeds.
Tony is able to offer horse owners the chance to learn and experience this method for themselves and their horses through his clinics and shows.
Tony’s horsemanship improves the performance of all breeds and disciplines, resulting in more responsive, supple and forward horses. The “From the Ground Up” program can also be applied to re-educating and problem solving for unhappy horses and their riders.
We hear from Tony:
“I like taking time out to just chill with a horse after a training session, it’s just amazing the joy they bring us and it never ceases to amaze me their willingness to work as a team .”
“I have often thought about the sand and the sea and the rocks of nature. What elements do you relate to in a horse?
In training and educating our horses do you see your horse as soft and pure as the sand and gentle as the sea ? Or as tough and rough as a rock that has to be carved?
I guess that depends on our mindset and our methods and attitudes when we are approaching any training session with our horses. The result will be the outcome of the path we choose? Resistance or flow, room for thought maybe…”
Tony Hart lives in Rockhampton, and enjoys running a horse farm and training complex at the Caves.
In his other life, Tony is Director of Hart Family Funerals, and even here he has managed to incorporate his love of a all things equine. For unique end of life celebrations, Tony offers a fully restored antique horse-drawn hearse and a pair of matched harness greys. On request he will drive the team himself!
Tony's favourite Dynavyte product is MicroBiome Support.
