Why do horses do what they do?
As a riding coach, horse show judge and specialist in equine behavior, I’m fascinated by the science and research of how horses really think and learn. Having the heart of a teacher, I strive to communicate not only the whats and hows of working with horses… but why.
Freelance riding coach
Need a fresh perspective? I make farm visits to Ontario stables. For a pre-show tune up or help solving your “horse puzzle”. Occasionally or weekly. Coaches, supplement your program with occasional lessons for you or your students.
In a typical riding session I will:
- watch you and your horse working as a team, observing your signals and watching your.horse’s responses.
- target some trouble spots
- suggest specific, do-able changes based on equitation science – how horses think and learn
- provide you with homework ideas
“I got more out of my one hour session with Lindsay that in many years of lessons!”
Workshops and riding clinics
“Is it me or my horse?” Clinic participants gain insights from fascinating equine research and practical riding sessions. Riders go home with a game plan for the training ring, warm up ring, or show ring.
“Thanks again for a fantastic weekend clinic! You are so gifted as a teacher. People
are asking when are you are coming back??”
