Ross Cooper of Rosca Horsemanship is a British Horseman, coach and trainer providing quality horsemanship for both horse and human.
Ross has a calm and kind nature which compliments his unique and compassionate approach to working with horses, encompassing the principles of the natural horse; the natural behaviour, psychology and physiology, the true principles of Horsemanship. For Ross, Horsemanship is not a method or defined by a discipline, it is a way of being with the horse; a way of thinking and a way of feeling.
As a certified Equine Behaviour Consultant (CHBC) with a complimentary Level 3 in Equine Psychology, Ross combines practical feel and intuition with the application of behavioural science to promote harmonious and willing partnerships. By developing our awareness, relationships can build on trust and understanding, achieving positive lasting results through effective communication in a way the horse can understand.
From foundation to advanced Horsemanship, working alongside a variety of horses, from pleasure to competition, Ross works towards meeting the needs of the horse and ambitions of the handler by identifying the right programme and approach that works for them through the application of new-age horsemanship. As a UKCC coach, Ross offers dynamic ridden coaching, developing feel in both horse and rider as individuals to achieve their full potential, for all ages, skill-sets and disciplines, and both Western and English styles of riding. All training is in the absence of conventional and traditional methods; no fear, no force, no pain and no gadgets, challenging the conditioned way horses are treated to improve the world for all equines.
Based on the border of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire in the United Kingdom, Rosca Horsemanship travels Nationwide to you for private and group sessions, clinics, demonstrations and workshops.
Ross is proud to be a member and International Horse Agility Accredited Trainer (HAAT) and contributes regularly to a number of the UK's leading equestrian magazines including Horsemanship Journal/Western Horse UK, Your Horse Magazine, Horsemanship Magazine and Midlands Horse Magazine.
