About the Tao of Horsemanship Methodology & Approach

If you are ready to start a new or young horse, re-start a traumatized or older horse or improve your horse care and horsemanship and want to use a holistic, positive, and proven method, Caroline’s teaching and training will show you how – every step of the way.

One of the many areas that sets Caroline’s teachings and trainings apart is her organic process of teaching, rehabilitating, and training. This is also referred to as “unconscious” learning. 

The benefits of this style of teaching and learning are huge and impact the way we process information which creates a higher level of learning performance in both horse and human.

Where most professionals use pressure, force and mechanics, to make things happen, Caroline uses strategies to engage the horse, so they feel safe enough to trust, start thinking and want to connect deeply.

The horse is never compromised, rushed, or forced during this process. Caroline’s compassionate way of teaching shows you how to understand what your horse needs, learn to work with them, instead of against, and most of all how to slow down, listen, tune in and connect.

Therefore, it’s organic. The process of learning, problem solving and developing (training) with your horse happens unconsciously, naturally, and with ease.

The Training System

The following 8 areas make up Caroline’s core curriculum and riding foundation program.


Like all training systems, these areas are in an order and make up the essential building blocks to achieving the relationship and riding partner of your dreams with your horse.


This curriculum is found within the MasteryMembership Riding Foundation Program, providing an in-depth, step-by-step, instructional video program.

Meet Your Instructor, Caroline Beste

Caroline Beste and her horses have been teaching students around the world an intuitive and holistic approach to rehabilitating and training horses called Tao of Horsemanship.

Caroline’s path to learning includes study with some of the best in her industry, including a wide variety of disciplines, but none have taught her as much as the horses she has worked with over the years. 

Her knowledge and skill are a result of a lifetime study of horse and human behavior combined with years of listening to, and working with, thousands of students and horses.

Tao of Horsemanship’s methodology is not only personally transformational for both horse and human, it is also a roadmap to helping you achieve the relationship and ride of your dreams with your horse.

Using a holistic, classical, and science-based approach to education and training, Caroline teaches horse owners how to understand, connect and develop their horses – from the inside out, from ground to riding, from start to finish.

Connecting with your horse this way creates fulfillment, enriches the experience, and most of all becomes mutually enjoyable between you and your horse. It just doesn’t get any better than that!

Through her company, Tao of Horsemanship, Caroline offers one of the largest and most comprehensive online educational platforms called the Tao of Horsemanship Academy. Her online training academy hosts a wide variety of courses produced and personally taught by Caroline.
