What does Classical mean?

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.

What topics can you expect to see inside the Academy?

The primary focus of each part of the Academy is classical principles for the modern rider to help with understanding, development, and continuous progress in the mind and the body of the horse.

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.

Presented clearly, in a way you can UNDERSTAND and USE

You want to invest your time and money in a program that you can understand. You want a program that gives you information you can USE and REPLICATE to improve the relationship and performance with you and your horse. AND you want a program that gives you answers to your questions when things don't quite go as planned.

The videos in this Academy cover topics that are meaningful to where you and your horse are right now, and are presented in a way that helps you to understand the theory AND the apply the ideas. Some videos are short, others are longer, because most of them show the actual learning process for the horses and the students so that you know what to expect when you take the ideas to the barn and work with your horse. And you are always free to ask questions, within the individual videos themselves, during the monthly LIVE Q&As, and inside the community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patrick is the real deal; a life-long student of the horse who hasn’t just stuck to one discipline but instead has taken the initiative to learn many different methods and styles while blending them in to a whole horse approach. Patrick cares about the relationship and communication between your horse and you.

His instruction well organized; Patrick has the ability to break complex concepts into bite size pieces that building upon each other, creating complex ideas that I never thought I could wrap my head around. My four OTTB horses, who have had very little extra training, are learning moves and a sense of focus I never thought possible, but with Patrick’s help we have done it. I am looking forward to creating the best training opportunities with the help of Patrick King and Patrick King Horsemanship for my two young OTTBs, Hamilton and Limerick.
