Doma India International Certificate Course
The Doma India School was first established over 50 years ago in San Luis, Argentina as an innovative horse-taming program based on non-violence and respect for the animal itself. The method consists of reaching a veritable communication between man and horse, without provoking fear or pain, while allowing the tamer to gain its full trust and loyalty.
Through Doma India there is no need for forceful interaction. The tamer must not necessarily be strong or physically privileged. He must, however, be able to tap deeply into the horse’s psyche, and thus learn to teach and train it.
These methods have transcended the equestrian domain and are used as motivation and leadership tools in the business world as well. Research equates the behavior of pack animals, such as horses, with the interaction between staff members in a firm. In both situations, a leader is needed to guide and encourage the entire team in order to achieve a common goal. Horses, in particular, learn through persuasion, and only by knowing their nature, behavior and psychology is it possible to influence them and lead them to excel in any discipline. At the same time, Doma India places priority in imparting pleasure and enjoyable experiences. This is why the method is used today as an important leadership, confidence-building, training and empowerment tool for humans as well. In addition, these objectives fit in a framework of respect for the environment and nature in general, making Doma India not only a course and enjoyable learning experience, but also a philosophy of life.
