From the Ground Up
Six Week Coaching Package
I teach you where to start with your horse.
Learn simple tools to build a better partnership by understanding your horse’s behavior.
No fancy bits, complex training methods
or “woo woo” magic techniques.
Confused about what to do with your horse?
Do any of these apply to your horse situation?
- You lack confidence around your horse and are unsure where to begin
- Your confusion is creating anxiety and you’re having less fun at the barn
- You’ve been researching different training methods but are overwhelmed by the options
- Your horse has less-than-ideal manners on the ground but you don’t know how to change that
- You don’t understand your horse – sometimes he surprises you with his responses
- You and your horse keep hitting a plateau in riding progress
- You want a good partnership with your horse but aren’t even sure what that means or how to get it
- You find yourself fantasizing about buying “the perfect horse”
The Horse Wise Solution
I can coach you to confidence so you can assess and direct your horse from the ground up
- Become aware of your horse’s behavior (what is he doing?)
- Understand what this behavior means (why is he doing this?)
- Connect with him on the ground using essential tools (halter and lead rope)
- Learn which fundamentals to focus on (no matter what your discipline)
- Discover key exercises to do with your horse to build confidence (his and yours)
