Ray Ainsworth- "The Man Horses Talk To"
Ray Ainsworth was born and raised in Raymond, Mississippi. From a young age, Ray studied the language of horses. As a winning jockey, trainer, and competitor, Ray developed and fine-tuned a resistance-free, no-nonsense technique that he uses in teaching horses and working with behavioral issues of every kind.
Ray now travels the United States giving entertaining and informative clinics to horse lovers and has filmed a series of educational DVDs. Through all of these avenues, Ray teaches all types of horses how to behave the right way with a maximum of understanding and a minimum of stress to the horse. Ray works with young foals, old mares, abused horses, trailer-shy horses, as well as horses who will not allow their feet and ears to be handled, and every horse in between. Along the way, audiences learn horse language themselves and are able to apply this knowledge to their own dealings with these amazing animals.
Ray’s sincere goal is to make the world a better place for horses and their humans through communication. Ray does not train horses; he teaches them in a way that makes him one of the world’s most unique horse teachers. He has found that through communication and non-violence, horses learn faster and retain information longer. Ray’s approach is based on the fact that horses have a language and are capable of communicating a wide variety of messages. All horses know it. So does Ray. And so can you.
