Video Coaching Services

Get valuable feedback you can re-watch over and over! So many students find actually watching themselves riding or playing with their horses to be a complete revelation. They see things they are doing or not doing that they weren't even aware of and it allows them to track improvement over time and become aware of bad habits so they can be fixed. 

It also allows you to truly focus on learning and absorbing information when you re-watch your session, since you are at home in a relaxed environment and not trying to also manage your horse right in the moment. I know from experience when you are busy managing what feels like 10 million things at once while riding or working with your horse, it can often be difficult to even hear or process all of instructions you are being given or to remember all the advice that your coach shares with you. Having a video coaching session where you can re-watch the feedback at your convenience solves this problem!

DISCOUNT OPTION: I'm currently offering a promotion where, by agreeing to allow me to use your coaching session video either on my website as advertising or in future courses I design for other students to learn from, you can get $10/off an individual session or $15 off a package deal. The follow-up we do via email or video chat will NEVER be shared (though you are welcome to record it for your own personal use).

So What Can I Help You With?

Here are just a few examples of problems I can help you solve, things I can teach you, and things I can help you improve. If you don't see the problem you need to solve or skill you want to learn listed here, shoot me an email to find out if I can help before booking a session!

My focus is on teaching recreational riders - I cater more to adults, but also love helping teens and kids - how to have excellent horsemanship fundamentals, learn to understand why common behavioral problems happen and how to solve them in a way that is gentle and stress free for the horse, and how to build a strong partnership and connection with their horses.


I combine this psychology based training with classical dressage training, teaching you to understand healthy biomechanics - how to help your horse use his body properly so he stays sound, healthy, and pain free for years to come. When your horse uses his muscles correctly and has good posture, this also creates a much smoother ride for you, a more balanced horse, and therefore a much more relaxed and willing horse. Your horse will also build strength & fitness, resulting in him having more stamina and you being easier to carry - again resulting in a much happier, more willing horse. 

 If your problem or goal is related to western or english horsemanship fundamentals (riding, training, groundwork, or horse care), equine psychology, problem solving, trail riding, or low level dressage and healthy biomechanics, it's likely something I can help you with, regardless of whether you ride English or Western.


If it's related to higher level performance or showing your horse, western sports (reining, barrel racing, cattle work, etc), or more advanced jumping - then that is not my area of expertise and I'm happy to recommend some other resources to put you on the right track! If you aren't sure whether your goal is a good fit for what I can help with, feel free to drop me an email and we can discuss it and determine what your best options are!

Gain a Deeper Understanding Of Equine Behavior & Psychology

Learn how horses think, act, and play; what motivates and inspires them;  why they do the things they do; and how to get them to WANT to partner with us.

I can teach you to use psychology to solve problems and challenges such as:

  • kicking  & biting 

  • bucking, rearing or running off

  • pulling away or pulling back when tied

  • being hard to catch or herd bound,

  • being hard to bridle or hard to deworm

  • being scared of needles or fearful of the vet

  • pushing against pressure or ignoring you

  • Being aggressive at feeding time or around treats

  • crowding you or being pushy 

  • not standing still for mounting, grooming, or tacking up

  • Not picking their feet up

  • Dull or oversensitive to your leg,

  • Heavy or leaning your hands

  • Behind the bit

  • Spooky or unconfident on the trail

  • And pretty much everything in between!

Improve Your Riding Skills

Become the balanced, confident, sensitive rider your horse has dreamed of!

 I can help you improve riding basics such as:

  • Building your horse's confidence (and your own) with trail riding

  • Creating precise, soft, & smooth transitions

  • improving your riding position & balance

  • Picking up canter leads correctly & knowing when & why to pick up a particular lead

  • Learning to feel your diagonals in trot without looking & know when and why to pick up a particular diagonal in trot

  • Get your horse's backwards & forwards buttons equally balanced so they are as happy to go as they are to slow or stop

  • How to align your body so you use 50% less effort in posting trot 

  • How to stop bouncing at the canter

  • How to stay balanced if your horse stops or slows suddenly

  • I can teach you to ask your horse to perform an energetic back-up WITHOUT pulling on the reins and how to teach your horse to accept your aids and NOT gape their mouth open, throw their head up, lean on you, or drag their feet when asked to back.

  • Learn how to ask your horse to take responsibility for maintaining their own gait - to go forward in a calm but energetic manner without you having to kick or squeeze constantly or having to hold your horse back.​

  • Learn how to slow down, stop, or make downward transitions with your seat instead of pulling on the reins.​

  • And SO MUCH MORE!

Improve Your Training Skills

Learn the Importance of Healthy Biomechanics!

  • Learn how to use obstacles creatively to build your horse's confidence and teach them to become puzzle solvers!

  • Learn how to teach your horse things from the ground first so you are both safe - and learn how much easier and safer your riding can feel when your horse already has an understanding of what you want!

  • Learn how to teach your horse to move in a way that is healthy for their body, using their muscles properly with excellent biomechanics and proper balance - which results in them being smoother to ride - instead of moving in a  tense, tight, upside down frame that is jarring and uncomfortable for both of you.​

  • Learn to help your horse become equally flexible in both directions & to bend through the ribcage evenly​

  • Learn the difference between bend & flexion as well as the difference between lateral & vertical flexion; understanding these differences can help your horse be more balanced, supple, willing, and relaxed​

  • I could go on but hopefully you get the idea! I am passionate about helping riders create the bond they always dreamed of with their horse in a healthy, stress free, fun way that is gentle and kind to the horse.
