We have had the pleasure of meeting Peta Bradley of Stella Stud through her attendance as a rider with Master Horseman Mr. Buck Brannaman. We were the hosts of Buck’s Australian clinic in 2014.
Peta has a true passion for excellence in all aspects of her horse career. She has ridden under the tutelage of some good horsemen and women, but was still struggling with factors in the competition world of dressage and the traditional ways of most horse people.
Specifically, she struggled to accept the forced headsets, mouths tied shut, scared horses and, not to mention, all the health problems from stress and misuse of the horses’ bodies.
Peta has been seeking the ultimate way of riding her horses with less pressure, more natural and stress free. She wanted free moving, willing partners, which in turn made healthier and happier equine partners.
I have seen evidence of Peta’s transformation of horses that, prior to arriving to her, were trained traditionally and were so unhappy and uncomfortable that they retaliated out of fear by bucking, rearing or bolting.
Understanding the causes of these behaviors, Peta has instead offered them a better deal where they now have lovely free flowing movements, expression and elegance - all working together harmoniously.
Her horses are healthier, too, as Peta puts in a lot of time and dedication to researching all aspects of her horses from ridden through to health issues.
The great thing with Peta is that she is out there riding her horses regularly, continuously looking for ways to better herself, while keeping it graceful and empowering - with no gadgets, stress or cruelty to her horses.
We highly recommend people to seek out what Peta has and contact her with any enquiries.
We as horse clinicians embrace people like Peta because she is making a positive change for all horses.
