Equine Specialist

I am certified through both EAGALA and PATH, International as an Equine Specialist in Equine Assisted Growth and Learning. I am available to sub-contract or work freelance with your organization. I would love to talk to you about opportunities to collaborate.


Equine Partnership Coaching

Would you like to build a stronger relationship with your horse? Equine partnership coaching is a way to work with your horse from the ground to develop a partnership based on respect and understanding. This way of interacting with your horse rests somewhere between equine facilitated coaching, liberty training, and natural horsemanship. It is an exploration of self and partnership that will open your eyes to a whole new experience with your horse or your herd.

Note: Equine partnership coaching is also a great way to prepare your horses to facilitate equine assisted growth and learning sessions.

50 minute sessions at your farm: $60


Riding Lessons

I am available to teach beginner through intermediate lessons. I specialize in helping riders to build their confidence and composure in the saddle. I use a lot of breathwork and meditation to help you further develop your skills as well as the relationship that you have with your horse. When you combine a strong foundation of equitation and horsemanship with inner work, you can enhance your riding experience.

50 minute private lesson at your farm: $60


Integrative Body Work for Horses

I am certified as an equine sports massage therapist and an equine body worker. I also use energy work to support your horse’s wellbeing. I began massaging horses in 2003 and have seen great success with sport horses, rescues, founder cases, and more. I am also happy to teach you the basics of bodywork and stretching so that you can incorporate it into your horse’s maintenance plan. Working on your own horse really helps to build a stronger relationship.

60 minute session: $80

Workshops

Would you like to host a workshop? I can fill an evening slot for a local group, a breakout session at an expo or conference, or custom tailor a half-day workshop at your farm. Let me know what you are looking for. Favorite topics are on the use of meditation, breathwork, and energy when working with horses.


Clinics

I provide half-day and full-day riding clinics. I will start the day with a short talk that is open to everyone and then open up a set number of 40 minute slots for private or semi-private lessons. The focus will be on mindful riding to build better balance, inner calm, and communication with the horse. Clinics are great for your students and I am open to a profit share with the barn. If you are interested, please contact me for more information.
