We Sponsor... Love Horses Magazine

love horsesWe thought you might want to know who we sponsor.  We love Rebecca's philosophy on live and her attitude to her animals...

Her website is   It is a website and newsletter dedicated to empowering horse owners. She believes that anyone who cares for a horse should have free access to the latest knowledge and tried and trusted advice.

Here is some info on Rebecca Thomas:  Rebecca is the founder and editor of Love Horses Magazine, a regional magazine and national newsletter and website for the empowerment of ordinary horse lovers. As many horse owners do, she balances her horsey lifestyle with a full-time job, family, friends and other commitments.

Like lots of girls, Rebecca was obsessed with horses from around age 10, using her pocket money to go for half-hour rides at the local stables. When she was finally able to buy her own horse, she decided to hack to a yard five miles away for lessons with friends. To this day, however, she remembers the emphasis on their unschooled horses “behaving” and the promise of a “sort out by the instructor” if they didn’t.

Her belief now is that horse lovers would make huge leaps in their horsemanship and avoid misunderstanding and conflict with the horse from understanding learning theory. “The most common way horses are trained in both traditional and alternative-training methods is by negative reinforcement but there’s confusion about what this is (it isn’t hitting the horse) and what actually comprises punishment for horses. Also there is definitely a need to learn how to include rewards in everyday training.”

Before publishing Love Horses Magazine, Rebecca worked in direct sales and marketing. She also spent many years in paid and unpaid roles in the third sector, including seven years working with women and children fleeing abusive relationships. In this role, Rebecca coordinated courses for women to recognise and understand abuse – impossible to do without examining values and deeply held beliefs.

As a grassroots horse owner, Rebecca started searching for better advice – including alternative ways of interacting with horses to avoid force and inadvertent punishment.

That’s how Love Horses Magazine came about. Love Horses Magazine brings you great articles by experts who are not afraid to think outside the box. Not only are they fantastic at what they do, they’re also people we can like and trust as we seek a more holistic approach to caring for our best friends.

All of us at Electric Fencing Direct love our animals and we love the approach Rebecca has taken to help people who love their animals and want to do the best for them.  Have a look at the site - Love Horses Magazine and follow them on Face Book
