Welcome to

the Relationship and Riding Partnership of Your Dreams with Horses 

the Relationship and Riding Partnership of Your Dreams with Horses 

Empowering you to be the best you

can be for your horse.

This is no ordinary path. It is an extraordinary process, producing extraordinary results.

Pillars of Training

The Mastery Foundation Program™ methodology provides the right ingredients necessary to developing both you and your horse together, in true partnership, from the inside out, ground to riding, start to finish,

rehab to recovery, beginner to pro.

It offers every horse and equestrian the opportunity

to reach their potential naturally, organically and harmoniously.



Where Evidence Supports Data


The #1 rule to developing horses is regulation. An unregulated horse is a disconnected horse -

in heart, mind and body,

The program provides advanced knowledge in the science of movement, behavioral research and neuroscience, providing you with a comprehensive education in equine behavior, psychology, instincts and physiology.


Feel and Think as One

Holism is about considering the whole horse

and rider - the emotional, mental, physical

and spiritual aspects of well-being,

balance and happiness.

Holism teaches you how to be a horse listener

so you can read, understand and assess your horse's well-being in every interaction

and training.

Natural and Holistic Horse Training

I’m Caroline Beste of the Tao of Horsemanship. I help students worldwide develop the relationship and ride of their dreams with their horse. This is achieved through a holistic, methodical, and evidence-based approach to horse development, training and problem-solving.

My method fuses together the principles and teachings, of classical horsemanship, working equitation, evidence-based horsemanship, Tai Chi and Taoism. When woven together with a holistic approach to development and problem solving, you have the elements needed to develop horses and people to their fullest potential easily, naturally, and in true harmony.

From a lifetime of study, I have developed a complete training system that works for all horses and riders. I call it the MasteryMembership Riding Foundation Program. It’s an online apprenticeship program designed to teach you everything I know about developing horses from the inside out, ground to riding, start to finish, rehab to recovery and novice to performance.

The key to my world-class success is my emphasis on relationships before training, connection before mechanics and foundation. When you nurture relationships and connection, you not only develop a happy, loving, consensual partnership with horse, you make training easy, enjoyable, and lasting.

This is why it works for all horses and riders. It doesn’t matter where you are in your horsemanship journey and education... My program is the foundation for all disciplines and equestrian activities. 


In the end, foundation means forever and when it’s solid, you have a partnership for life and a horse that can do anything and is happy to do what you ask. Start your foundation training today!

May you always be one with your horse,

Caroline Beste

your horsemanship, and your future together.

Caroline Beste Connection With Horse

1st Course: Discovering the Spirituality of Horsemanship - the foundation for everything possible!


The Spirituality of Horsemanship is the foundation of Caroline’s work and is designed to teach you how to work in harmony with your horse using the power of intention, energy, and synchronized movement.


This is how you develop a confident, connected, and balanced horse through relationship, energy awareness, and synchronized movement exercises.


The skills you develop in this course will become the relationship that binds you and your horse in everything you do, most importantly as you learn to work together and as one.


It is also about emotional agility and self-regulation and teaches you how to create ease, flow and calm within you and your horse. 


Whether you are starting a weanling, developing a young horse, re-training an older horse or rehabilitating, this course will show you how to develop them, or rebuild them, and most of all create the most amazing relationship and consensual partnership.


So, no more fighting, forcing, coercion or excessive pressure to make your horse do what you want!

2nd Course: Tao Training Method - developing you and your horse from ground to riding as one.

This course is the most comprehensive and expands on the first course, diving deeper, offering a plethora of knowledge, principles, science, skills, and building blocks. 


Here is where you learn how to maintain and nurture the relationship, mindfulness and connection developed in course one, applying it to the technical and mechanical aspects of training. These lessons create the level of ground and riding foundation we need to feel safe and solid.


There are 12 modules, and 7 core areas of study within each offering over 200 step-by-step video lessons total. This course is where you will learn how to train your horse, teaching you the “how to” of developing any horse – from young horses to starting and re-starting, rehabilitation to second level dressage.


Caroline has developed thousands of horses using this program and has carefully and strategically designed this course to include the areas needed to develop together, as one, from ground to riding – bitless and balanced.

3rd Course: Problem Solving Strategies - strategies designed to help you better understand and work together.


The Problem-solving Strategy course not only provides you with more insight and education, but it also shows you how to resolve some of the most difficult challenges that arise when learning and training.

This course is broken down into 6 areas and follows my curriculum so that you have both support and strategies to resolve some of the most challenging situations.

There are multiple training videos within each area, providing you with more understanding, an intelligent perspective into the mind and behaviors of the horses as well as innovative tactics to solving some of the most common and difficult training problems.

In addition to the amount of information presented within each, you will learn the necessary skill sets and strategies to unlock old, negative behaviors while creating new and positive change within you and your horse.

4th Course: Holistic Horse Care & Wellness Guide - a holistic approach to your horse’s health, care & well-being.


This guide offers a holistic perspective and approach to horse’s care, health, wellness, and well-being.

  • Will more lessons or courses be added in the future?
    New lessons are added to the program each year, and in the form of a closer perspective, or break down, of the lessons already provided. The weekly, and monthly, private webinars also offer a plethora of new information, insight and problem solving.
  • How long will it take me to develop my horse’s ground and riding skills using your program?
    For the average horse owner, who owns 1-3 horses, you can satisfactorily complete the entire program in 2 years. This means you would need to work 3-5 sessions a week and with the easiest horse first. The more challenging the horse, the more you will need to learn and know. The program offers it all and in stages. First, you must learn the basics, which the program teaches you. Once you develop the first level of foundation, you can dive deeper into the lessons and method, learning what you need to specialize in rehabbing and retraining the challenged and challenging horse.
  • Does this program work with traditional training and disciplines?
    Not really. The program offers a completely new and different methodology to developing horses with a focus on ethical, pain-free training, building blocks, compassion, patience, and consensual partnership.
  • Does this program work for older horses?
    Yes. While some older horses are jaded and can take longer to learn new ways of being, doing and perceiving, some learn faster, it just depends on the horse’s nature and nurture, experience, temperament and learned behaviors. The program teaches you how to figure all of this out.
  • What is the difference between your program and a course about horsemanship?
    My program is so comprehensive, thorough, and progressive, it is like going to college or a university. While it focuses on horsemanship, it includes all aspects of horse-human personal, mental, and physical well-being and development. The program is also Caroline’s apprenticeship program and designed to teach students everything she knows about horses including the care of, handling, maintenance, psychology, behavior, relationship, liberty training, lunging, biomechanics, and riding. Whereas a course is an 8–12-week intensive study. You can’t cover everything needed in that amount of time. To begin with, the program combines the teachings of the masters in Classical Horsemanship, Taoism and Tai Chi, developing horse and human from the inside out, ground to riding, start to finish, rehab to recovery. It’s core values and teachings focus on relationship, communication, and consensual partnership. There’s nothing more magical than to develop together with your horse, in true unity, all the way from beginning to Grand Prix. If you’ve been searching for a proven, holistic, and science-based training system that will develop you and your horse’s potential, this program is for you.
  • Does this program offer certification?
    The MasteryMembership Riding Foundation Program is an apprenticeship program for students wanting to become certified. Passing the program with excellence is the first step to achieving certification at the foundation level. Should you be interested in more information, please contact
  • Does this program work for all horses and riders?
    Yes. The program is about foundation and finesse. When you have a solid and correct educational foundation, you and your horse can maintain and progress easily. Without a solid foundation you will have gaps, holes, stagnation, and continued challenges. The program accomplishes this by combining the core teachings of Classical Horsemanship, Taoism and Tai Chi. When combined the following philosophies and practices create what we all seek in ourselves and in our equine partners: a well-adjusted, well-balanced, confident, and agile learner and athlete.
  • Can I use this course to re-train or rehabilitate a horse?
    Yes. The program focuses on teaching you how to assess, learn and rebuild your horse while developing a safe and solid ground and riding foundation.
  • Do you have certified instructors?
    No, not currently. The program is still relatively new. Caroline Beste is the only person certified to teach in her method.
  • Can I start a young horse or weanling with this program?
    Yes. The program begins with bonding rituals, relationship building, developing authentic connection and conversation. These areas create the foundation of trust and confidence needed in our young horses to be confident and open learners moving forward.
  • What type of access do I have?
    You have lifetime access which means you have access 365 days a year, 24/7. You also can access the program from any device, anytime and anywhere there is reliable internet.
  • How does this program work for show horses?
    While the program can enhance any performance horse and rider, it’s core beliefs and practices are not aligned with traditional training methods. It is an ethical and compassionate training program and does not endorse pain, pressure and release tactics, excessive aids, bits, spurs, or force when training or developing horses as professional athletes and performers.
  • What is an FAQ section?
    An FAQ section can be used to quickly answer common questions about you or your business, such as “Where do you ship to?”, “What are your opening hours?” or “How can I book a service?” It’s a great way to help people navigate your site and can even boost your site’s SEO.
