What Can I Do For You?


I’ve had a few people ask me to narrow down what I do for horse owners into one sentence. Boy, that was a bit hard as I’m so used to explaining in detail what I do. Plus how I can help horse owners also depends on their particular horse and their specific issues.

But here is what I do in a “nutshell”:

“I teach people how to fix any issues with their horses through my specially designed relationship-based horse training”.

Now let me expand on that a bit in more general terms:

Teaching people how to fix issues with this type of horse training can be incredibly beneficial for both the horse and the owner. Building a strong, trusting, and loving relationship with a horse is essential for effective training and in resolving any and all behavioral or communication issues that are occurring now or may arise in the future.

Many of the issues that could arise in the future will simply melt away or not happen at all because of the strong connection, trust, and respect that is developed between the horse and owner while learning my heart-centered, relationship-based training.

My style of relationship-based horse training focuses on developing a strong, healthy bond with the horse, establishing clear communication, developing empathy and a heart-felt friendship, and understanding the horse’s needs and behaviors.

This approach often emphasizes positive reinforcement, patience, kindness, and consistency to encourage desired behaviors while addressing any issues.

Here are a few key principles that are often emphasized in my relationship-based horse training:

  1. Trust and Respect: Building trust and respect form the foundation of a successful relationship with your horse. Earning your horse’s trust through a relationship that develops consistent handling, clear and concise communication, and positive reinforcement will help establish a strong, lifetime bond.
  2. Clear Communication: Horses communicate through body language and respond well to clear and consistent cues from their handlers. Teaching owners how to effectively communicate with their horse through body language, voice commands, and subtle cues is essential for successful training. Through my relationship-based training, an owner learns how to communicate with their horse using herd dynamics and herd behaviors that their horse easily understands.
  3. Positive Reinforcement: Rewarding desired behaviors with positive reinforcement, such as praise, treats, or scratches, helps to reinforce those behaviors and encourages your horse to continue performing them. This approach creates a positive learning environment and strengthens the bond between horse and handler. This also creates an enjoyable learning experience for the horse that he/she looks forward to, thereby enhancing the horse’s mental well-being.
  4. Patience and Consistency: Training horses takes time, patience, love, and consistency. Teaching owners to be patient and consistent in their training approach helps their horse understand what is expected of him/her and reduces any confusion or frustration. This in turn creates a safer environment for the owner to work with their horse because without the confusion or frustration, you have a calmer, easier-to-handle horse.
  5. Understanding Horse Behavior: Understanding the natural behavior and instincts of your horse is crucial for successful training. Educating owners about horse behavior, herd dynamics, and their natural instincts can help them better understand their horse’s needs and respond appropriately to any and all issues that arise.

By teaching horse owners and horse enthusiasts how to develop a strong, trusting, and loving relationship with their horse and addressing any and all issues that may arise through relationship training, creates a harmonious partnership that benefits both horse and owner.

It can also lead to improved connection, communication, cooperation, trust, and the overall well-being of the horse while enhancing the owner’s skills, safety, and enjoyment of working with their equine companion and friend.

Teaching people how to fix issues with their horses through relationship-based horse training can be incredibly valuable and rewarding for both the horse and the human. Building a strong bond and understanding between horse and owner is essential for a harmonious and safe partnership.

If you have any specific questions or topics you’d like to discuss related to relationship-based horse training, feel free to ask, and I’ll do my best to help you.

Until next week, have a great weekend, and Happy Horses!

    You have mentioned some very good topics. All the points you covered are true!

    I spend a lot of time with my horses which I really enjoy and it helps me gain their trust. They are my best friends who I can tell anything and cry in their manes when feeling sad. I’m sure as you explain to those who have problems with their horses, that they see what is needed. Horses know.

    I thank you again for your wonderful tips on horse care.
