About The Tao of Horsemanship Academy
The level of expert education and innovative training offered on the Tao of Horsemanship Academy is parallel to none. The online training courses are both intuitive-based and practical, offering extensive, expert knowledge and thorough, step-by-step training videos. In addition to the rich content and in-depth videos students have access to a multitude of relevant supplemental reading materials and a Q&A discussion forum where they can share the experience with a community of like-mind.
The Tao of Horsemanship Academy currently offers three training courses, with each focusing on one concrete area of horsemanship – from deepening the connection and relationship to developing the best riding foundation to problem solving strategies for challenging areas and horses. Each designed to not only educate and problem solve but to inspire and empower!
The Courses are designed to provide the best learning opportunity, for both you and your horse, through microlearning modules. What makes microlearning so awesome and powerful is the way it delivers education and instruction to its students in small, very specific bite-size blocks of information. By keeping the video content shorter we are better able to focus on key points and practices that pique interest without overwhelming you, the student, during your learning. This allows students to be in control of managing their learning process which is so key to digesting and absorbing information at your own speed and learning style.
Another great feature of our online courses is that they are part of a learning curriculum. Instead of having access to hundreds of miscellaneous videos, you are accessing a training curriculum that is designed to support you and your horses progression and learning, from start-to-finish.
And last-but-not-least, you are learning a way of Being and working with horses that will teach you how to develop the relationship and ride of your dreams!
To create the best relationship and riding foundation we recommend that you begin with Discovering the Spirituality of Horsemanship Course, followed by The Tao Method Course and then the Problem Solving Strategy Courses.

Thank you and may you always be One with your horse!
