Carmel Valley Trail & Saddle Club
85 East Garzas Road Carmel Valley, CA 93924

I am so excited to share with you my latest discoveries in teaching you how to be a better leader, communicator and rider for your horse. After 30 years of teaching and now months of working out the best ways to teach you to be successful, I selected 10 of the most popular and necessary topics. The first three modules nail the core behaviors: Connection, Relaxation, Responsiveness. The next three cover qualities: Confidence, Impulsion, Bending. The last four relate more to performance: Harmony, Agility, Purpose and Power.

No matter your level of expertise or chosen discipline, the Happy Horse Curriculum – How to Talk Horse will help you progress and solve problems because it is behavior-based training – focused on your desires, your horse’s needs and the overarching goal of a happy horse.

I’ve called my program How To Talk Horse because it is about learning how to communicate with horses and an understanding of horse behavior and individual characters. I can’t wait to show you what it’s all about in person this September!
