As a riding coach, horse show judge, columnist and specialist in equine behavior, the science of how horses really think and learn has saved me time, trouble and trauma in training! Coaching at a horse show, teaching in a classroom, speaking to an audience, or as an equine consultant, I help riders gain insight into why horses do what they do.

The best gift we can give a horse is to communicate clearly. And the heart of a good coach is always to do the same with her student!

Need a fresh perspective? Join a group riding at an Ontario farm near you! For a pre-show tune up or trouble shooting session, occasionally or regularly. Some coaches supplement their programs with occasional lessons for themselves or their students.

 

In a typical session Lindsay will …

  •  
  • watch you and your horse working as a team through some of her favourite patterns.
  •  
  • target the trouble spots – noisy cues, mixed messages, mental blocks.
  •  
  • reflect back the horse's perspective using the science of how horses think and learn
  •  
  • suggest minor changes for better results!

Equine behaviour, competition
and life!

Why horses (and humans) do what they do!

Horse Psychology for the Show Ring.

"Are you speaking so your horse is listening?" A winning ride is often won or lost in the horse⁄human communication. In workshops, participants gain insights from fascinating equine research followed by practical riding sessions. Riders go home with a game plan for the training ring, warm up ring, or show ring “Is it me or my horse?”

  • " Just wanted to thank you for a fantastic clinic! Everyone was raving about it and we
    all came away energized and eager to try some new tools. I love how it all seemed
    simple - but not easy - and the idea of little "training deposits" will work so well into
    our program. I am so glad many of our volunteers and trainers were there and we'll
    explore incorporating your ideas and methods further at this Friday's Trainer
    Training session. A.B.(CANTRA) Therapeutic Riding Instructor

some in horses. But we trust
in the name of the Lord our God."

for the day of battle …
but victory rests in the Lord."
