Lawson’s Foundation First Mountain Horse Training™
philosophy that has developed during years of experience working with horses.
It is a method of communication that teaches understanding rather than relying
on mechanics or fear. His technique combines the mental, emotional, and
physical aspects of horses as they learn to trust and respect humans. A solid
foundation provides the essential support needed for helping horses learn
regardless of the breed or discipline. Robert’s Foundation First Mountain Horse
Training™ methods have not only produced International and World Grand Champions
but many versatile trail horses as well.
