I did enjoy meeting you in Sweden. Further to watching your "Six Keys to Harmony" demonstration. I just wanted to congratulate you for the high quality of your training. I am considering you as a "classical" trainer in the sense that you eliminate any constraining instrument and do not use force. Your message founded on deep knowledge and respect to the horse would be very useful on the official scene. Competition is too often meaning results at any price.
All the best to the "gentleman cowboy" you are!

National Magazine Articles featuring Ed Dabney and his training methods
"Ed's pleasant personality combined with true expertise and love for the
equine partner makes him highly qualified to pass on an important eques
trian culture to a new generation of riders by combining centuries-old
European tradition with American Cowboy culture. I received
my equestrian education for over 13 years at the Spanish Riding School
in Vienna, Austria and I can only recommend Ed Dabney as a role model
