Learning Equine Behavior to Build Partnerships

Trust between Humans and Horse


"It was a great weekend, Sam! My biggest takeaway was a profound realization that our horses need our support, guidance, and direction amidst the chaos in their heads that manifests as “busy-ness” or unwanted behaviors. Supporting our horses and redirecting their thoughts during those insecure moments, instead of critiquing them, teaches them that they can trust the human to be there for them. Trust that the human is worth following. When They can trust that you are looking out for them emotionally, mentally, and physically, a true partnership can develop with your horse. Now to go and do my best with each horse I interact with to apply these principles. I want to be worth following. Thanks!"

"A beautiful day at the Oakzanita Ranch in Descanso for our horse clinic with Samantha Harvey. Gunny and Cody enjoyed a nap before their lesson time. So grateful that Sam became part of our horse world. Learning so much about how the horse thinks, keeping the horse focused on the human and so much MORE. Learning while having fun is awesome. Love seeing the change in the horse at the end of the lesson. Thank you."

"Absolutely love your work. Love that you share what your do. The way you teach and share in a manner that people can take in. Bringing light and awareness to changing one's emotional state, stance, and movement and how that completely changes how the horse perceives the human's communication. Thank you for everything."
