"Reading the Horse" Online Horsemanship Behavior Course

Seven-Part Demo Equine Behavior Video Learning

Testimonial: "Thank you for this mindfulness webinar. I wish I could have been there live but appreciate the options to watch later. We are new horse owners and I have been taking things slow with my interactions but also don’t want to do anything wrong, haha. I look forward to interactions with my horse but I know I get excited inside to make connections and may overstep the intentions that I initially set out to make. I hope I can start off with more clarity but it’s also interesting how we humans can get into that grey area so easily. I plan to watch these videos again this week and take notes for gentle reminders to start fresh each time. I know I have a lot to practice to bring my awareness into focus, clear my mind, gain confidence and work towards gaining the trust of my horse. Thank you so much." Sarah, WA, USA 2021

Who: All horse folks wanting to learn to recognize and read the horse’s body language and behavior to learn how to work towards creating a respectful and fulfilling equine partnership.

Why should I take this course? Many horse enthusiasts truly want the best for their horses. As with everything, there can be a steep learning curve, irrelevant of how many years you have been around horses. Every horse has something new to teach us. As a client of mine once said, “You don’t know what you don’t know.”

Ask yourself the following questions- Do you:

  • Struggle with the “same” issue(s) with your horse?

  • Feel overwhelmed by your horse’s behavior?

  • Want to help your horse become more confident?

  • Feel like your training has reached a plateau?

  • Experience your horse resisting your requests?

  • Feel like your horse ignores your communication?

  • Have a horse that is a “hard” keeper?

  • Have a horse that has “issues” with everyday handling such as with the farrier, vet, trailer loading, catching, tacking, mounting, riding out, or?

  • Have a horse that is really great, except for _____?

What: Seven Horses of various breeds, training, and ages will be used as demonstrations in a variety of video examples to display how the animal’s thoughts and emotions are reflected in their physical behaviors. This helps diminish the “surprise” factor when working with the horse, and humans learn how to read, address and diffuse the root cause rather than the symptom of defensive, dangerous, disengaged, desensitized (mentally shut-down,) or distracted horses.

Sam will offer a voiceover for each video to explain and break down what to look for in the horse and what it means, to help you learn how to understand, address, and support the horse in a variety of situations.
