Caroline Volandt-Beste is an internationally recognized behavior specialist and holistic educator. She is best known for her personal coaching style and intuitive approach to teaching people and training horses. Caroline’s method combines the Art of Horsemanship and Classical Dressage with a Taoist way of Being and interacting, with a primary focus on aligning and synchronizing horse and rider in mind (thought), body (movement) and soul (relationship).
Caroline believes in a holistic approach to horsemanship, providing expert knowledge and instruction for the whole horse and rider. Her approach is multi-dimensional and includes the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of both the person and horse’s well-being.
Caroline’s vast experience in a multitude of disciplines enables her to provide expert and individualized attention to both the well-being and soundness of the horse as well as the management, handling, nutrition, education and athletic maintenance of horse and rider.
Caroline offers her expertise and compassionate training in person through her Total Immersion Training Programs at her center in Dunnellon FL as well as long-distance and through her Tao of Horsemanship Online Academy Training Courses and personal coaching services.
“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Intuitive means tuning in, becoming attuned and listening to the way we feel about a situation, person, thought or thing. Intuition is based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning. It is instinctive, not scientific, logical or about reason and because it cannot be measured by scientific research it is somewhat of an anomaly for most and perceived as an esoteric concept rather than the truth of a situation.
TAO OF Horsemanship Center
Tao of Horsemanship’s International Equine Behavior and Performance Center is one-of-a-kind. We are not a typical training facility. Ours is a Center where students from around the world come for education, healing, meditation, spiritual awakening, and to learn the language of Equus.
The layout of our ranch and the intentional flow of working spaces provide the most amazing atmosphere and setting for you and your horse to trust, be open, release, heal, and, most of all, learn. Caroline’s work encompasses a lifetime of study, experience, and practice. She is an international clinician, motivational speaker, and holistic practitioner with a concentration in relationships, attunement, and horsemanship.

Legend has been with me for about 13 years and was a gift from my Dad. In 2002, my first horse, Brandy, was slowly dying. He was 32-years-old and we believed it to be cancer. Brandy’s health continued to decline and it was heart wrenching to watch as he was dropping weight quickly and finding it difficult to get around. It was during this time that my Dad began looking for another horse. He wasn’t looking to replace Brandy, but rather help diffuse the pain of his departure. Just months before Brandy passed, Dad found a cute little Arab named Legend...
