Want to communicate more clearly with your horse?

The horse can only understand your aids when they are given IN TIMING with his footfalls. Let me show you how important that is!

Academy for Classical Horsemanship




Classical horsemanship can be described as a systematic approach to training that builds on the basic principles of the ‘Old Masters’ that we hear about, and is supplemented and supported by new insights that serve the well-being of the horse and its development. Classical horsemanship, then, doesn't care about breed, discipline, tack, or the rider's outfit... but about the willingness of the rider to listen to the horse and keep the horse in the forefront of the equation when it comes to training.

In the Mind

Begin to better understand how your horse thinks and feels, and how to use equine psychology to truly help him learn and build confidence.

In the Body

Understand movements and exercises that will help you to develop strength, suppleness, and soundness in your horse.

In the Real World

How can what you know and what you aspire to be, be presented to your horse in a way that improves the relationship and performance.

Foundation Work

One of the MOST IMPORTANT things we can do for our horse's is to build their confidence as learners and help them develop a learning and thinking mindset.  So many pieces that go into this stage that influence the rest of their lives.

Advancing and Refining

Once the Foundation is in place, then the horse has the mind to work with us towards our goals. Now we start working with the body AND the mind in a way that helps to develop sensitivity and athleticism... creating happy athletes in us and our horses!

Problem Solving

What about when things are going wrong with your equine partner? The problem solving offered will help you to gain clarity and understanding that will help you to FIX issues AND to head them off in the first place by gaining deeper insights into their roots.
