Deepen Your Seat Manage Your Energy Communicate Clearly


Step-by-Step Home Exercise Program that Helps You Develop More Feel and Connection with Your Horse

If you're like most riders, you want to improve your seat and balance, feel softly anchored in the saddle... feel calm and quiet within... and communicate accurately with your seat, legs, and hands.

You want to have a sense of ease and focus within... be skilled in the most core fundamentals of horsemanship... and feel the magic of connection with your horse.

 And you'd like to have a way to practice those core skills at home... in easy-to-understand and do routines.


What if the next time you ride, because of newly discovered skills and exercises (for both you and your horse) you could walk into the arena, or go down the trail... grounded... attentive... and engaged?


And what if you knew those
exercises were things only you can do
with your horse?

Sequence of Skill & Behavior Development

"I think the sequence is so great. I’m trying really hard to learn this better way of riding. It really shows. My horse is so much more relaxed. I can see how she is really trying to listen to me, and it is a new stretch for me to do most of my guidance from my seat and legs and breathing. Thanks for teaching me such simple but profound lessons! "~DeAnna

  Discover 12 powerful exercises that simultaneously develop balance, rhythm, and communication with a horse.

Exercise #1: GET GROUNDED

It’s so easy to get going too fast on the inside... in a flash.

When you practice the Get Grounded exercise, you become mindful, calm, and engaged about your horse and what you intend to do.

That internal state of being grounded is what allows your true potential as a rider to shine through.


3 Exercises to Develop an Anchored Connection to Your Center of Balance,
to Your Horse's Center of Balance and to the Motion of Gaits.

Module 1, Exercise 2: BEGIN MINDFULLY

Begin Mindfully includes four routines. They are designed for before you mount up, after you get on, (including your seat position, body alignment, getting loose in your limbs) and focusing... plus a routine for your initial walk to begin your warm-up.

Module 1, Exercise 3: FEEL THE MOVES

Feel the Moves includes a routine for feeling the motion of individual gaits through your seat and a practice for understanding how increased speed and distance impact all you do.

Module 1, Exercise 4: DECOMPRESS

Decompress includes a routine for when you pause and/or stop your horse to help you get grounded again. This is a routine that can transform your riding... and there’s one for you... and one for your horse.


4 Exercises to Create and Experience Rhythm and Speed Modulation with Your Horse

Module 2, Exercise 5: FLOW ENERGY

This exercise includes a routine for moving energy up and down at all gaits using your eyes, breath, and seat. You’ll move smoothly from one segment to another. You’ll be making waves.

Module 2, Exercise 6: CHUNK IT

This exercise helps you expand the concept of making waves to smoothly modulate your horse’s speeds. Now you’re not only feeling the rhythm of the gaits, but you also know you and your horse have a variety of ‘gears’ for your gaits, and your horse understands when you ask for them.

Module 2, Exercise 7: SLOW SEAT

This exercise is all about helping you navigate transitions. Transitions are best made with a feeling of being slow on the inside, using your eyes, breath, and your seat in a methodical way as you approach the transition.

Module 2, Exercise 8: EASY STOP

This exercise helps you get comfortable and skilled with the rhythm and the sequence of using your breath, and your seat to stop... without using your hands. It combines everything we’ve done in all of the exercises so far.


4 Exercises that Help You 'Speak the Language' of Your Horse... Develop a Relaxed, Responsive, and Confident Horse


This exercise helps you execute a progression of clear communications for your horse. The word ‘communications’ expands the idea of cuing to include thought.

Module 3, Exercise 10: ENGAGE/LISTEN/RESPOND

This exercise helps you understand the purpose, energy, and application of communications. You request an action from your horse. You 'hear' his response and then you follow-up with a release or new communication. This sequence builds trust, willingness, and true responsiveness in a horse.

Module 3, Exercise 11: GUIDE/SHAPE/ACCELERATE

This exercise provides key guidelines for using your feet and legs to communicate with your horse. The exercise also gives you a simple strategy to eliminate leg/feet confusion for yourself and for your horse.

Module 3, Exercise 12: SUPPORT SMOOTHLY

This exercise provides key guidelines for using your arms and hands to communicate with your horse effectively.
