DVD Information: Where to Begin?
Caroline has created multiple DVDs that give her students the opportunity to either begin or continue their learning from home. The following descriptions will help you to decide which DVD(s) are the best for where you are in your horsemanship journey.
The Tao of Horsemanship Foundation DVD Series – Volume 1
This DVD series is Caroline’s foundation and where it all begins!
The Discovering the Spirituality of Horsemanship DVD is a dual-disc set that helps you – the human – learn how to slow down, center yourself, and listen with your heart, eyes, and mind. This DVD is also about connecting to your horse on the deepest of levels – mind, body and soul. It is here that we learn how to develop and nurture the relationship you desire with your horse. You will also learn how to take the relationship you now share with your horse into the work, making your work together seamless, timeless, and harmonious. When you’ve achieved this state of Being within and with your horse, you will be ready to develop the work (partnership) with your equine partner. This DVD includes a step-by-step tutorial to achieving this way of Being and working. Please contact infoRH@riderhorsemanship.com for a copy of the tutorial.
The Round Penning Approach DVD – Volume 1 teaches you how to engage your horse in the round pen, where the relationship is nurtured and developed into deeper partnership. The simple, three-step approach will help you to successfully develop the desired connection, partnership, and harmony with your horse. This DVD includes a downloadable tutorial that will, along with the video footage, give you the tools to create a more happy, willing, and enthusiastic partnership.
The Ground Exercises to Improve Connection and Partnership DVD – Volume 1 offers a nine-step approach that will enhance the relationship that has been achieved in the round pen. This DVD also includes a downloadable tutorial that serves to enhance the educational video footage.
The Riding as One with Your Horse DVD – Volume 1 takes the work that you’ve done with yourself, as well as with your equine partner in the round pen and through the online exercises, into the next phase of the relationship – riding! In addition to the video footage, you will find a downloadable tutorial that supports the tools Caroline shares that will enhance the connection, partnership, and harmony while riding.

The PSSVB DVDs include strategies specific to: liberty work, correct round pen approach and techniques, ground manners, lunging for self-carriage, evaluating the new horse, working with different natures/personalities, reading learned behaviors and how to work with them, and re-pattern, re-starting the riding horse, and so much more! While each DVD focuses on specific exercises to address various natures, learned behaviors, associated challenges, and problem solving strategies, they also contain a host of additional techniques offering a wide array of education for any situation.

Five Individually-Themed DVDs
The first two DVDs address, in depth, the work that begins in the foundation DVD series. Students who are looking for specific guidance in these areas, as well as those who are seeking to enhance the skill sets that began in the foundation series, should consider the first two DVDs (Biomechanics and Lunging). The last three individually-themed DVDs are quite specific to the titles you see below. Each DVD is packed full of specific exercises, education on nature and learned behavior, as well as problem solving strategies.
