Playing with Horses
3 & 5 Day' PLAY SHOP'

Cultivate the relationship with your horse you always wanted by creating a new foundation of heart felt mutual respect.

When you are ready to learn a new way to be with your horse that encompasses mutual respect and loving but clear boundaries, we can help you make the breakthrough.  We help you learn to be the partner your horse needs you to be so that he can give you the respect, loyalty and performance, you expect.

“I had a horse that dragged me around, bumped into me and didn’t listen. I was taught to give him a slap or back him up.  This created a relationship of bickering and nagging. This escalated into naughty behavior in-hand and under saddle.”

Many of us try many tactics and tools to manage our horse's behavior, but often, much to our frustration the results don't stick. Study equine herd hierarchy and behavior and learn to embody and maintain the kind of leadership your horse can and will accept.

PHASE I -  Uncommon  Horsemanship

First we re-introduce an understanding of horse sense, how horses move and think. Then it's time to practice a new method of connecting with your horse that is designed to help you establish a clear and proactive partnership. You will discover how to trust your body wisdom and how to translate that into effective communication with your horse. We immerse ourselves in understanding the language and culture of horses through exercises and creative play. We bring a new awareness and understanding to the field of horsemanship.

PHASE II - Making The Heart Play Connection TM

Next you will learn a new way to be with your horse to build the respect, trust and willingness you have been dreaming of. Making subtle changes in your approach through body language, timing and listening will introduce you to the real horse you have, one you maybe don’t even know yet.  

PHASE III - Relationship Boot Camp

Experience how to ignite and maintain a magnetic bond that will enhance and transform your relationship with horses forever.  This is a deep immersion into the heart and soul of relationship and what it takes to get and stay connected.  A time to let go of fears, eradicate misconceptions, and heal. This ground breaking work will give you the foundation and tools to nurture and sustain the new union you have created.
