In 1997, Gerry Guy and Zoe Brooks bought a 500-acre horse farm. There was just one hitch - they'd never owned a horse before. By 2004, they were raising Canadian horses and mastering the basics of natural horsemanship, viewed as a kinder, gentler way of training horses. These horse whisperers have also developed a bitless bridle that enhances control and communication during horse training. The patented product, The Nurtural Bitless Bridle, is now sold in 46 Canadian tack stores and in Europe. This husband-and-wife team has gone from novice to innovative leader, creating jobs and contributing to the equestrian industry. Nurtural Horse is a galloping success.
