Teaching People How to Develop Their Horses using a Holistic, Positive and Natural Approach to Relationship, Training and Problem-solving

Welcome to the academy, a global community of like-minded people who want to care for, handle and develop horses using a well-rounded training system that is spiritually driven, science-based, and classically founded.


If you have been searching for a spiritual way of interacting with horses while developing them from the inside out, ground to riding, start to finish, look no further - you are finally here!

Hi, I am Caroline Beste, founder of the Tao of Horsemanship Academy. You might recognize the beautiful horses in the above picture from my YouTube channel. They are my co-facilitators and will be assisting you during your learning journey here with me.

The Tao of Horsemanship Academy offers the most comprehensive, in-depth training courses on just about everything horse related – from horse care, handling, developing young horses, training, and re-training, problem-solving, trauma, new riders to grand prix.

No matter what your experience is, or challenge with horses, the Academy Courses will help you achieve your goals using a holistic, classical, and common-sense approach to training, problem-solving, and horsemanship. 


If you are new to horses or a professional horse trainer, you will find what you’re looking for. Each course is deeply layered, providing you with a plethora of knowledge, expertise, skills, and building blocks. All the necessary areas needed to fully understand your horse so you can learn how to work together while maintaining a positive learning environment as you develop your potential.

This is possible because I have created a method to developing horses and people that works – for everyone. It works because it combines the teachings, values, and core principles of the great masters in Classical Horsemanship, Taoism and Tai Chi.


When used together, these teachings create holism, emotional and physical balance, heightened sensory awareness and motor skills and harmony and flow in movement. These are the areas horses and people need to feel at ease, safe, confident, connected and fulfilled in their relationships.

Each course has been designed and developed by me personally, offering expert knowledge in equine behavior, psychology, physiology, biomechanics, senses and learning, spirituality, aptitudes and natural agility, trauma and rehabilitation, development of young horses, training, and re-training, foundation to upper level and performance. 

The lessons provided in each course are lengthy and layered so you can review often as you refine. While the lessons are designed to teach you the “how to”, they are also designed to teach you how to understand your horse’s nature and nurture so you can learn your horse and most importantly learn how to work with them as you develop, train and problem solve.

In addition, the courses are designed to educate, transform, and inspire you so you can achieve the relationship and ride of your dreams with your horse.  

If you are ready to start a new or young horse, re-start a traumatized or older horse or improve your horse care and horsemanship and want to use a holistic, positive, and proven method, these courses will show you how – every step of the way.
