Horse and Rider Awareness Programs

We have all dreamed of that magical relationship with a horse - a partnership and connection that inspires and challenges each of us to become more aware of ourselves and the horses in our lives.

Now your dreams can come true with the proven tips, techniques and tools that are featured in the highly acclaimed Horse and Rider Awareness® program.

You will learn how to “do it yourself” and become more aware of how your riding position, influence, and reactions affect a horse's balance and responses. As a result, your horse will quickly become more comfortable to ride and easier to influence!
