"Learn to Ride Together"

Starting a Horse with a great Foundation

One of Lorie’s favourite things to do is start young horses under saddle.

Preparing young horses for work under saddle.  Lorie teaches horses to be soft, responsive and balanced before being backed.

When horses have completed the Starting Groundwork, and are ready to begin working under saddle, Lorie carefully takes horses through this process, making it a calm and positive experience.

Behaviour Issues with horses

Undesirable habits,  unwanted attitudes  can make time spent with horses challenging.  Learn what to do with horses who are presenting behavioural issues  that many would associate as “Negative”. Lorie has several tools to help horses and their owners overcome many common challenges.

Lorie can help horses who have been misunderstood, poorly handled, and have formed dangerous habits, and  have proven to be difficult to train.  Lorie has had the opportunity to work with a variety of people and their horses in many situations, including breeding stallions, ponies, school horses and elite show horses. Lorie has taken the problem or the challenge and worked to offer solutions to each individual, working specifically to help each and every client.  Taking the time and effort to do the best for the horse and owner.

Liberty Horsemanship

Liberty is a true bond between horse and handler.  Lorie teaches Liberty Horsemanship to help her students master the elements of groundwork.

Teaching Groundwork

Many struggles people face when working with horses can be improved from the ground.  I teach people to understand their horse from the ground using clear, confident communication.
