Russell Higgins

Russell is based in New Zealand and has been teaching horsemanship clinics and starting horses professionally since 1999 both in New Zealand and (until the Pandemic) all over the world. He is a regular clinician and demonstrator at New Zealand’s premier equestrian events and is particularly known for his amazing liberty demonstrations in the night shows with his team of bay geldings.  He owns and runs Brumby Farm Horsemanship Centre with this partner, Ruth, where they teach all aspects of horsemanship from liberty to lead changes, but always with a focus on understanding how horses learn and develop both mentally and physically.

Now that they are unable to travel due to Covid 19 they have developed an active on-line community through their Coaching Club membership site as well as producing home study materials to keep their students progressin
