Tao of Horsemanship Training System

We believe in a holistic approach to horsemanship, providing expert knowledge and instruction for the whole horse and rider. Our approach is multi-dimensional and includes the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of both the person and horse’s well-being. We have 8 training modules that specialize in self-awareness, the spiritual connection, relationship, discipline, confidence, biomechanics and balanced riding.

We offer a complete guide, step-by-step learning and instruction, here at our center and on our Tao of Horsemanship Online Academy Training Courses for People and Horses: Please contact with questions or to further discuss.

Student and Horse Assessments

If you are feeling challenged in your horsemanship, searching for answers, and feeling frustrated and stuck, Caroline has the experience and skill sets needed to help you and your horse develop deeper understanding, communication, and partnership.

One of Caroline’s specialties is identifying both the nature of, and learned behaviors in, people and horses. She has worked with over 1,000 horses and almost as many people during her career. While each horse and person is an individual, each shares similar characteristics, traits, temperaments, behaviors and patterns belonging to their species. Caroline not only identifies the nature, she brings awareness to the learned behavior, or coping mechanism, so that each person not only learns about themselves and their horse, they learn how to work together.

Training for Your Horse

Tao of Horsemanship’s approach to training focuses on creating the optimum relationship and partnership necessary for horse and rider to be as one in mind, body and soul. This level of “oneness” is the convergence of mind, body, and heart between horse and handler/rider; and, it is where all three levels of joining take place, aligning and synchronizing as one. This is of the utmost importance as it not only supports the relationship and partnership between both, it secures the level of safety we need when working with an often unpredictable prey animal.
