Clear, science-based education for horses and horse people
so you can learn, ride safe, and enjoy each other’s company.
Maybe you don’t know how to take your riding to the next level. Everyone’s got a method of riding and training. Which way is right?
Equitation science takes the guesswork out of troubleshooting your riding or your horse’s behaviour.
Everyone has a tale of a difficult or uncontrollable horse. Using science-based, ethically sound, and sustainable methods to resolve the confusion of horse and rider, I restore the pleasure that horse riding should bring.
Horse training is not a magical process; it is a systematic science.
— The Truth About Horses, Andrew McLean (2003)
Decide if you want lessons for yourself or for your horse (or both). Not sure? Email me and we’ll sort it out.
Whether you’ve just started or have ridden for ages, you’ll see a difference in your relationship with your horse.
Training for your Horse
Poor equine behaviour escalates. Ears laid back becomes a nip, then a bite. A shy to a spin, then a rear. These are all easily retrained; don’t take a chance.
Training for You
The foundation is everything. I’ll teach you equine behaviour, cognition, and learning so you understand why horses do what they do so you can ride better.
Are you undecided, not sure if your horse needs training or if you need a lesson? I would love to help you understand what I do and why I do it.
I was having trouble with the tie stall. It was so scary and I didn’t know what to do. Now I know what is expected of me, and I am happy to do it!
I was worried about everything. Now I understand what the lesson stable needs me to do to give their students a good ride. I love my job.
