“Is it me or my horse?” Horse show judge, riding coach, equine behaviorist and speaker, Lindsay Grice has trained hundreds of horses and riders in her 25 years as a professional. She’s a self-described “horse observer”. “I’ve learned so much by watching and studying horses – from the end of a longe line, the view from the saddle, or the judges’ booth. I’m fascinated by equine research. By simplifying the science of how horses think and learn, I give riders some tools to solve their horse puzzles I wish I’d had earlier in my career!."


Why do horses do what they do?      
In the horse world, traditions and science often collide.
“I think the best teachers are the curious. Those who ask “why?” and communicate well.”

Lindsay’s love of teaching shows up as coach, clinician and even when judging – giving tips and encouragement as appropriate.

Despite having a truckload of tack and technical skills, a ride can be won or lost in the communication of our signals. “As someone who's been there – forgotten courses, made training mistakes, endured a hollering coach, felt the competition jitters and made it to the winner's circle, I share insights from sports psychology I wish I’d known! “
