Are You Ready To Deepen Your Connection?

There is a place deep in our souls where horses touch us and awaken our hearts. This course shares a way of being with horses that
honours our equine partners, as well as ourselves. You’ll learn how to:

  • Communicate more clearly with horses
  • Understand what your horse is saying
  • Support a happy and willing equine partner

This course is a compilation of concepts, methods, tools and education designed to help participants discover what works best for them and the horses they interact with.

What's Included In The Course...


Horse Psychology

Understanding where horses are coming from is an essential part of creating meaningful relationships with them. This includes understanding:

  • Horses as a species
  • Horses as individual and emotional beings
  • Horses in the human world

This module dives into how horses think, learn and process information, as well as understanding the natural instincts of horses.


Equine Body Language

The body language of horses is used by both domestic and wild horses. Whether we mean to or not, we are communicating through body language every time we are with a horse. In this module, you’ll learn:

  • The body language of horses
  • The keys to body language
  • Body language in every day interactions

Discover how horses converse through body posture, positioning, distance, movement, expression of body parts, energy and intent.


The Human Component

Communication is a meeting place for two beings to share their thoughts, perceptions, emotions and experiences. How you show up matters, so let's explore:

  • The language of energy
  • Self awareness
  • Understanding impact

By creating harmony within our own minds, bodies and spirits, we open the door for harmony in our relationships with horses.


It's About Partnership

Partnerships are created when two beings come together on common ground. In this module you'll explore how to find common ground through:

  • Leadership in the horse/human herd
  • Essential lessons for horses
  • Simple concepts for great horsemanship

At its best, horsemanship is a playground where connection, growth, joy and learning come together.
