Jason Webb grew up on his family’s 4000 acre sheep and cattle property at the foot of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, Australia and it was here that his life-long study of horse behaviour began.
In 2002, Jason settled in the UK and set up his business, Australian Horsemanship, at Risebridge Farm, the family farm of his future wife, Penny. Jason and his team specialise in handling and starting young horses, rehabilitating ‘problem’ horses and teaching a modern approach to traditional Australian methods that are based on a practical approach to horse psychology.
Over 150 horses a year now benefit from education at Risebridge Farm, from professional riders, studs and private owners nationwide and he regularly receives referrals from vets, farriers, equine dentists and other equestrian professionals. Jason also travels nationwide for consultations and teaching clinics and is in demand for demonstrations, performing at Your Horse Live in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and other prestigious national and regional events such as The Southwest Christmas Equine Fair and ToastLife Festival. He also contributes articles on horse training and horse behaviour to national magazines such as Your Horse, Horse & Rider and Horsemanship Journal, to popular online sites Horse & Country TV and HorseHero, and blogs for Horse and Hound.
With Jason’s experience and natural understanding of horse behaviour, he knows that the right nutrition lies at the heart of every successful training programme. We’re delighted to have Jason on board as a member of Team Smart.
