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
  • Exercises that Develop Softening, and Acceptance of Contact
  • Ground and Riding Patterns Designed to Improve Arena Work and/or Trail Riding
  • And so much more!

Intuitive (Wellness) Workshop for Women and Horses

Discovering the spirituality of horsemanship through feel, intention and energy awareness while deepening the relationship of horse and human through mind, body and soul exercises.

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.

No horse experience necessary to enjoy and benefit from this workshop.

Cost: $850/per person (Discounted - normally $950!)

Pay Online:

Workshop includes: Spirituality Dual DVD, 60+ workbook, one-on-one 30 minutes sessions throughout the day with Caroline and your equine partner, group work, embodiment exercises and like-minded, soulful community.

Caroline encourages you to bring your own horse. Horses are provided should you not have one.
