Lesley Neuman travels throughout North America and the World, (she was part of an American team sent to Australia to work with Australia's wild "brumbies") gentling wild horses and teaching the public how to safely and humanely work with these magnificent animals.

Lesley is a member of the Board of Directors for the Mustang Heritage Foundation

Lesley Neuman,
wild horse gentler and trainer

Lesley Neuman is a gifted trainer with a rare ability to understand, communicate with, and gentle wild and unhandled horses.

Lesley also has an uncommon gift for communicating with her human audience. Lesley explains clearly, simply, and effectively  what the horse is telling her and what she is doing to guide the animal from panicked captive to one who feels comfort and confidence in humans.

A mustang is, says Lesley, a "real horse." It has to be, or it doesn't survive. If a wild horse has bad feet, or if it doesn't know how to be social, it won't make it in the wild.

For these reasons, Lesley loves working with BLM (Bureau of Land Management) Wild Horses who have been gathered off public lands.

Once they have learned to trust humans, wild horses make wonderfully intelligent, sensitive, and devoted mounts who can do anything domestic horses can, plus they have built-in savvy and natural good manners.
