Doma India

In what can only be described as mesmerizing, the Puesto Viejo team recently had the immense pleasure of witnessing the legendary domador, Oscar Scarpati Schmid, in action.  In what otherwise would have been a dismal winter’s day spent snuggled up indoors, Don Oscar drew an unflinching crowd of dedicated students.  Both at home and abroad, Don Oscar’s message resonates with anyone passionate about the horse.

In the tradition of the native peoples of the Pampas, from whom he gained his naturalist worldview, taming the horse is grounded in respect and admiration.  From within this context, the domador develops certain cognitive elements for effective communication.  And indeed communication, without the threat of violence, is the key.  We observed in awe as the domador gained the trust of a wild animal through this Doma India methodology.
