Horse "Happiness"

Healthy, happy horses are vital — and ‘Horse Happiness’ is one of the driving philosophies behind the Montana Center for Horsemanship.

MCH uses a proprietary training method—the “La Cense Method”—which works in harmony with the horse’s natural behaviors, instincts, and personality.

This method allows riders to create a human-equine partnership formed through trust, respect and understanding, not through force or repetition.

The Design of the Center

Another important aspect of our approach is in the MCH facility design. The Montana Center facilities were designed and built to ensure that all horses are comfortable and protected from the elements; that they have ample opportunities to socialize with each other and enough space to move, which enables them to relax.  This, in turn, enables them to focus on their work, while enabling their trainers and teachers to more effectively and humanely educate their horses.
