An In-depth Approach to Horsemanship
The MasteryMembership is designed to teach you how to train your horse, from the ground to riding, using a holistic, compassionate, and science-based approach.
It is designed for those who want to develop their relationship and their horse's training themselves and are looking for a step-by-step program to guide them each step of the way.
It is also my foundation training program for horses and my apprenticeship program for students – all wrapped up in one comprehensive training program. This means you are learning everything I know about horses, horse care, handling, ground and lunging to riding as one - in mind, movement and heart-connection with your horse.
It just doesn't get any better than that and is a total game changer, turning training into a beautiful, purposeful and masterful experience for both you and your horse.
That’s right, you will be learning how to develop and problem solve your horse, yourself, using a proven and progressive training system.
It is the largest, and only, online holistic training program that is designed to meet the needs of all horses and any level of rider. This is achievable because my work is holistic and includes the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical aspects of Being and well-being.
Whether you are learning how to start your horse's education or re-build your horse's self-esteem and confidence, the lessons and weekly webinars are there each step of the way, helping you and your horse learn to trust, bond deeply and grow together.
It doesn’t matter if you need to start your horse’s education or re-start it, this program will give you the necessary knowledge, skills, tools and experience to understand and handle it all.
The level of riding foundation created is equivalent to training second level dressage. You will be learning how to develop your horse holistically and organically during this time too and without force, dominance, or excessive aids. When taught correctly, the principles of horsemanship create a disciplined, connected, healthy and happy riding horse.
The lessons dive deep, teaching you everything you need to know about your horse - how to read them, understand them, connect, and communicate with them.
This is where the energy works teaches you how to connect with your horse and in a way that speaks the language of Equus.
This is also about heart-connection and the beginning of learning how to think, feel and ride as one.
The main curriculum begins with four courses that include over 200 step-by-step, instructional videos. These videos are the building blocks needed to develop your horse holistically, from the inside out, from the ground to riding, start to finish.
Practice worksheets, supplemental reading, 50+ page workbook, and problem-solving lessons are also included to help teach, develop and guide you and your horse.
There are no holes in my foundation training either. When you have challenges, you have tons of support through weekly webinars, private Facebook community, strategy lessons, Q&A forums, study guides and coaching calls.
The four main courses make up the core curriculum and teach you about:
The spirituality of horsemanship, becoming attuned
How to work and connect with your horse’s energy
Language of Equus
Developing relationship, respect, trust, and confidence
Connection and communication
Reading and understanding what your horse is telling you
Grounding and meditation
Liberty and ground training
In-hand work and suppling
Training bit-less and bridle-less
Art of lunging: straightness training, balance and collection
Synchronizing with your horse’s movement - tempo and riding in rhythm
Contact and suppling
Safety pre-flight for mounting and riding
Riding balanced, with confidence and fluidity
Diagnosing and problem-solving
Preparing your horse for trails
Holistic care and nutrition
Saddle fitting and conformation
And so much more!
The ground, liberty, lunging and riding lessons cover all the areas I believe are important to both horse and rider including the principles and teachings from the masters of classical horsemanship.
I carefully prepare you and your horse each step of the way, completing all the proper preparation needed to teach you the level of connection and safety needed to ride as one with your horse -in balance, confidence, bitless and bareback.

1st Course: Discovering the Spirituality of Horsemanship – the foundation for everything possible
The Spirituality of Horsemanship is the foundation of Caroline’s work and designed to teach you how to work in harmony with your horse through the power of intention, energy and movement.
This is where you will work mostly on yourself, bringing a new-found awareness, mindfulness and attunement to everything you do with your horse.
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 an in-depth guide and covers all aspects of horsemanship including, but not limited to: understanding horses; equine psychology and behavior; foundation training from ground to riding and trouble-shooting for challenging situations.
Because this course is mostly about developing your skills in ground and riding techniques, it follows a step-by-step curriculum where each exercise builds upon the next. This means that the curriculum is designed to be studied one module and video at a time. Each video is a building block for the next to follow and for maximum success and best results with your horse, please study them in order

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.
