Cynastry welcomes Nanette Levin to the Vickers Tree this week. Horses have provided peace, companionship, an education and spiritual enrichment for Nanette Levin for the past 46 years. For more than two decades, her focus has been on starting young horses under saddle and working with horses that have had their brains scrambled by prior handling. Today, she’s learning more from the horses than ever, and enjoying the opportunity to have the farm herd’s guidance on new things every day while they help to school a good number of the client equine kids that come in. Thirteen years ago, she also brought Gatsby into the mix, her incredibly intuitive assistant trainer, who also happens to be a 90-pound mutt. Known for her ability to reach horses that are considered beyond help, Nanette recognizes that building equine-person partnerships requires including the horse in the training conversation. This often results in horses that are excited about training (nickering at the sight of their rider), relish their jobs and strive beyond expectations to excel at human-horse team activities. Nanette is president of BookConductors® LLC (www.BookConductors.com) and publisher of the Horse Sense and Cents™ book series. She owns Halcyon Acres®, an equine training and breeding facility (specializing in Irish Draught Sport Horses) on 117 acres of breath-taking land in the New York Finger Lakes area. Here, she works with client horses starting under saddle and troubled equines that have had a bad start. Visit her blog at www.HorseSenseAndCents.com/blog for tips, stories and ideas on working with horses and to view sneak peak excerpts of “Turning Challenging Horses into Willing Partners” (available to the public in July). See some of the horses and landscapes at Halcyon Acres at www.HalcyonAcres.com. Feel free to call her at (585) 554-4612 or (888) 875-3551.
