The Foundation of Connection & Conversation

With relationship, energy & moving as one

Discover the Spirituality of Horsemanship Course & Become One with Your Horse in Mind, Movement & Relationship*

Develop a Confident, Connected, and Balanced Horse through Bonding, Energy Awareness, and Synchronized Movement

Understanding, and preserving, the spirit of your horse needs to be considered throughout all its care, handling, training, and problem solving. This course is where we begin and where Caroline will show you how.

Developing your horse’s emotions, mind and movement is also important to your riding success and what creates a happy, healthy, and safe riding partner in your horse. 

Caroline’s Spirituality course is her foundation to riding as one and will show you how to create both the relationship and movement of your dreams with your horse. 

It all begins with rapport and relationship. From here we begin to create a deep and mutual level of understanding, heart-connection, and unity with our horse.

Caroline has a special, powerful, and proven way of teaching you how to connect deeply and in everything you do together. This process involves engaging energy, being attuned and mindful, and embodiment training. 

During this process you and your horse learn to become present and tuned into one another. This helps you both learn how to connect deeply, communicate, flow, and work together.

This way is so powerful it also assists in trauma and rehabilitation and leads to enrichment, healing, and well-being for both horse and human.

The mindfulness, energy, and connection you create with your horse is then transferred into specific liberty and lunging exercises designed to refine your relationship while developing your horse’s movement. These include straightness training, balance, self-carriage, and collection.

As Caroline always says, “develop the movement you want to ride before you ride.” This is paramount to learning to ride as one with your horse.

Struggling with Your Horse?

Courses about rehabilitating, developing & re-training

Re-starting the Challenging Young Horse Course

Re-training that Restores Trust & Confidence While Creating a Solid Foundation in Your Horse

This course is for the young horse that has gotten a rough start and a bad rap. And believe me when I tell you that most young horses do. 


The lessons in this course are designed for you and you horse, creating foundational building blocks that help you understand, and problem solve, while developing an open learning frame of mind, trust, and confidence in your young horse.


In my experience, 98% of young horses have been messed up by negative influences and experiences such as mishandling and labeling. These experiences end up creating their bad, crazy, and often unpredictable behavior.


Because these experiences shape their associations and perceptions, they become skeptical, fearful, and unsure of every situation and human they encounter. This makes them “difficult” to understand, work with and develop.

If this is you and your young horse, rest assured, you’re at the best place for help.
