Lessons & Instruction
At Tao of Horsemanship International Equine Behavior and Performance Center, our focus is about developing both horse and rider into a seamless, unified partnership. Through a lifetime of equine experience and learning, Caroline has skillfully crafted her unique approach to horsemanship, helping you achieve the relationship and ride of your dreams! In addition to her method, she has worked with some of the industry’s finest equine instructors and equine clinicians, bringing a vast array of knowledge and skill sets to her work.
Whether you are interested in liberty, ground work, riding, or all the above, Caroline can help you reach your horsemanship goals. Lessons are tailored to meet the individual needs of both horse and rider with a focus on the development of relationship, respect, and partnership.
The Foundation of Learning
Caroline’s teaching style employs the philosophies, training techniques, and riding elements of both classical dressage and reining. Balance, harmony, suppleness, and rhythm, combined with clear, mindful, and consistent communication (through aids), becomes the dialogue between horse and rider. The development of trust and respect are foremost and are the building blocks of establishing cooperation between both. This cooperation allows both rider and horse to work confidently together in balance, which in turn promotes harmony.
