Intuitive Horsemanship for Women and Horses

Learning to Connect and Communicate Clearly and Intuitively through the Power of Intention, Energy Awareness and Relationship Building

Students will learn to read horse behavior, build deep rapport and relationship, learn the depth, and power, of chakras - connect and communicate with horses through intention and energy while developing the “dance” – working with horses at liberty!

This 3-day “experiential” workshop will change your life forever!
Spend a phenomenal 3 days with Master Tao of Horsemanship Practitioner, Caroline Rider, and her herd as they teach a way of Being, connecting and communicating through the power of mind-body integration and synergy. 

Horses are masters of sensory awareness and emotional intelligence. These innate qualities allow them to live a life that resonates with clarity, balance, intuitive presence and consciousness. We can learn so much from them if we just slow down, center ourselves and listen with our hearts, our eyes and our minds. This workshop is not only about knowing yourself and mastering yourself, it is the foundation to mastering horsemanship and where Caroline begins within and with each horse encountered.

Caroline and her school masters will teach specific mind-body practices and ground exercises to assist in developing, cultivating and facilitating deeper intuitive consciousness, inner balance, well-being, mind-body connection and communication within and between horse and human.

Obstacle Training Course Clinic & Competition 

Developing Trust, Confidence and Partnership through Obstacle Training

Obstacle courses should be fun and designed to build communication and trust between horse and rider. The course develops a rider's horsemanship skills, timing, communication and the ability to read their horse. In hand it develops a versatile, willing and confident partner in our horse.

Confidence through obstacles tells us something about the personality and temperament of the horse. Coordination and sensitivity to obstacles demonstrates thoughtfulness and awareness to their surroundings. Your horse will be judged on each. You will be judged on your horsemanship - the manner in which you handle your horse.

Horse and rider are required to work through, or over, a series of obstacles that test their horsemanship: level of confidence, communication, coordination and/or sensitivity skills of both horse and rider. You will be scored on both your level of horsemanship and your horse's emotional agility.

First day of the clinic involves ground exercises, riding patterns, one-on-one coaching and obstacle training. Second day begins with obstacle course competition and problem solving in the afternoon. Competition is a timed event and will have 4 divisions. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, 3rd winners of each division.

Private Lesson Clinic

One-on-one coaching with Equine Behavior & Relationship Specialist,
Caroline Rider

Caroline's teaching style employs the philosophies, training techniques, principles and elements of Classical Dressage and the Art of Horsemanship. Balance, harmony, suppleness,
rhythm, combined with clear, mindful and consistent communication (through aids) becomes the dialogue between
horse and rider.

The development of communication is foremost as it establishes a mutual understanding and cooperation between both. This cooperation allows both rider and horse to work confidently together in balance, which in turn promotes harmony. Rider Horsemanship focuses on finesse, not force, and the results are achieved more smoothly and easily than most riders could possibly imagine.

Caroline's experience also encompasses the depth and complexities found within each discipline. From her experience she has been able to create a proven instructional training program that can assist with the following:

  • Problem-Solving Strategies For You and Your Horse
  • Round Penning Techniques for Deeper Connection, Trust, Communication and Partnership
  • Lunging and Riding that Promote Proper Muscling, Balance, Suppling, Collection, and Self-Carriage
  • 3 Simple Ground Exercises to Develop Better Trust, Respect, Partnership and Leadership
  • The Biomechanics of Riding Naturally with Your Horse and in Rhythm
  • Riding with a Balanced and Independent Seat
  • Awareness and Embodiment Exercises to Improve Seat, Hands and Legs
