Horse "Happiness"

"Horse Happines" - horses that are healthy, well cared for and comfortable in their environment, is vital and one of the driving philosophies behind everything that we do and teach at the Montana Center for Horsemanship.  

The Montana Center for Horsemanship is based upon a proprietary training and teaching method.  It is called the “La Cense Method," which works in harmony with the horse’s natural behaviors, instincts, and personality.  This method allows riders to create a horse-human partnership formed through trust, respect and understanding, rather than through force or repetition.

The Design of the Center

Another important aspect of our approach is the facility design of the Montana Center for Horsemanship. The Montana Center facilities were designed, developed and built to ensure that horses are comfortable and protected from the elements; that they have ample space and opportunity to socialize with each other and to comfortably move, all of which enables them to relax.  This, in turn, enables horses to focus on their work, what they are being asked to do, while enabling their trainers and teachers to more effectively and humanely educate their horses.  It is a mutually rewarding, beneficial relationship developed through this progressive, step by step process of natural horsemanship.
