Hi, my name is Aeron Mack, and horses are one of my passions. I have been involved with horses for over 40 years, and have been using Natural Horsemanship techniques for about the last 20 years. Some of my mentors include Tom Dorrance, with whom I had the pleasure of working before he passed away; John Lyons, who I have met several times and who continues to inspire me, Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman, and many others. I love to train and teach Natural Horsemanship, and currently have two projects that relate: one is a new riding halter I have invented (patent pending) called the Aeron Riding Halter, and the other is a horse rescue-rehabilitate-and-resell project called “Flip That Horse!” (TM), which I have made into a series, the first episodes of which are now live on youtube.
I love horses and I love to ride. I’ve created this site to explore and celebrate all things equine! The site will serve not only as a resource for people interested in learning more about things like natural horsemanship, bitless riding and barefoot horses, it will also serve as my personal journal as I continue on my journey to learn everything I can about horses.
I was born in Norfolk, Virginia, and grew up in northern Virginia, where I currently reside. I have also lived in England (Wiltshire), Northern California, New York City, Providence, Rhode Island, Greenwhich, MA, and a few other spots around and about. Virginia is where my heart is, and I continue to find it inspiring, both for my riding, and for my other passion: art.
I love to paint, especially landscapes, and usually work in watercolor or acrylic…. sometimes oil. I love to paint horses, but I’m not very good at them yet. You can check out some of my work on my Art page. Art and riding are my therapy and my passions, and I hope to be doing both till the bitter end!
