Progressive Equine Partnerships (PEP) is a global organisation dedicated to recognising and building a network of Equine Professionals and Establishments who are moving away from tradition and putting the welfare of the equine at the forefront of their practices. They strive to include all professionals in our directory who demonstrate unwavering commitment to improving equine welfare. PEP has launched a “be the change” campaign that encourages horse owners to enjoy their equines while practicing mindful horsemanship. Mindful horsemanship involves understanding your values and motivation in relation to your partnership with the horse, considering your actions from the horse’s perspective, and learning about your equine partner, the things you ask of him, and the environment in which he is kept. PEP offers a free 4-week online course in mindful horsemanship.
