We've developed a holistic approach that nurtures compassion, mindfulness, and respect for all life. "Be With Me" is a transformative journey of self-improvement, enabling your heart and spirit to communicate with the natural world.
The "Be With Me" holistic approach to horsemanship
Horse Master Vladimir Mustakerski, the founder of the Bulgarian horseback archery school "The Way of the Horse and Bow," is also the creator of "Be with Me" horsemanship approach.
Vladimir finds purpose in sharing his knowledge and experience in building a genuine and willing bond with your horses.
His dedication to fostering true harmony and understanding between humans and horses is the driving force to share experience and inspire others on their own journeys of equine connection.
"Be with me" is a holistic approach of equine communication and intuitive riding that establishes a gentle willing connection between humans and horses. It is a philosophy and method that can be applied in all forms of communications - horses, animals and people.
"Way too often, intentionally or not, people deal with the horse by breaking then mentally and physically and then using him as a tool – like it's done with Nature and all living beings.
By following the traditions of my ancestors, the indigenous horse people, as well as utilizing the collected knowledge of modern horse experience, I created “Be with Me”. It's horsemanship that works by learning to lead, encourage and shape the horse with understanding, partnership, love and inner strength.
This philosophy and method, with sufficient practice and insight, leads to the achievement of mutual success, satisfaction and the experience of life itself. This is the true Way of the Horse."
The secrets behind the holistic approach
At the heart of the "Be with Me" philosophy lies personal development - we strive to cultivate a spiritual and bodily awareness within oneself.
This self-awareness, coupled with an understanding of equine psychology and physiology, grows the horse's innate willingness to forge a connection with humans.
With the "Be With Me" approach, a lasting bond is formed between rider and horse, founded upon mutual understanding, trust and partnership.
Once our bond is discovered, all other aspects of horsemanship unfold effortlessly.
