The Tao of Horsemanship Academy Courses

Spiritually Driven Courses Focused on the Whole Horse & Person

Welcome to the academy, a global community of like-minded people who want to care for, handle and develop horses using a well-rounded and proven training system that is relationship oriented, science-based, and classically founded.


If you have been searching for an intimate and natural way of interacting with horses while developing them from the inside out, ground to riding, start to finish, look no further - you are here!

No matter what your struggle is, or dream with your horse, Caroline’s courses will teach you how to achieve the level of success you are looking for.

Each course has been designed and developed by Caroline and offers expert knowledge of equine behavior, how the horse was nurtured, and nature. 

The lessons teach you how to understand your horse’s nature and nurture so you can learn your horse and most importantly how to work with them as you develop, train and problem solve.

In addition, the courses are designed to educate, transform, and inspire horse enthusiasts helping them achieve the relationship and ride of their dreams with their horse.  

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, these courses will show you how – every step of the way.

Create the Deepest Connection

In Mind, Movement & Heart

Through relationship, energy & biomechanics

Deep Connection with Horses

Discover the Spirituality of Horsemanship Course & Become One with Your Horse in Mind, Movement & Relationship*

Develop a Confident, Connected, and Balanced Horse through Bonding, Energy Awareness, and Synchronized Movement

Learn how to connect, communicate, and develop horses using mind-body-heart alignment and synergy called Chakra Conscious®. ​

Developing your horse’s emotions, mind and movement is important to your riding success and what creates a happy, healthy, and safe riding partner in your horse. 

Caroline’s Spirituality course is her foundation to riding as one and will show you how to create both the relationship and movement of your dreams with your horse. 

It all begins with rapport and relationship. From here we begin to create a deep and mutual level of understanding, heart-connection, and unity with our horse.

Caroline has a special, powerful, and proven way of teaching you how to connect deeply and in everything you do together. This process involves engaging energy, being attuned and mindful, and embodiment training. 

During this process you and your horse learn to become present and tuned into one another. This helps you both learn how to connect deeply, communicate, flow, and work together.

This way is so powerful it also assists in trauma and rehabilitation and leads to enrichment, healing, and well-being for both horse and human.

The mindfulness, energy, and connection you create with your horse is then transferred into specific liberty and lunging exercises designed to refine your relationship while developing your horse’s movement. These include straightness training, balance, self-carriage, and collection.

As Caroline always says, “develop the movement you want to ride before you ride.” This is paramount to learning to ride as one with your horse. 

*This course does not include riding and is included in Caroline’s MasteryMembership Riding Foundation Program.

Struggling with Your Horse?

Courses about rehabilitating, developing & re-training

Challenging and Young Horse Training

Re-starting the Challenging Young Horse Course

Re-training that Restores Trust & Confidence While Creating a Solid Foundation in Your Horse

This course is for the young horse that has gotten a rough start and a bad rap. And believe me when I tell you that most young horses do. 


The lessons in this course are designed for you and you horse, creating foundational building blocks that help you understand, and problem solve, while developing an open learning frame of mind, trust, and confidence in your young horse.


In my experience, 98% of young horses have been messed up by negative influences and experiences such as mishandling and labeling. These experiences end up creating their bad, crazy, and often unpredictable behavior.


Because these experiences shape their associations and perceptions, they become skeptical, fearful, and unsure of every situation and human they encounter. This makes them “difficult” to understand, work with and develop.

If this is you and your young horse, rest assured, you’re at the best place for help.
