Horse Listening has helped me look at things from my horses perspective. My riding has improved tremendously , thanks




I have ridden all my life and played polocrosse the past 20 years. This year I started Working Equitation and am taking dressage lessons. I am learning a lot from Horse Listening. The first one I read was the canter to trot to canter exercise and I loved it! I’m excited to learn more and love reading your posts. Thanks!




Horse Listening has helped me by describing how elements of my training and development of dressage feels in a way I hadn’t heard them described before. It has given me visuals that I can use to help me know when I’m on the correct path.




I volunteer at a facility for therapeutic riding for people with disabilities. There are 9 horses who see different volunteers every day. They’re amazing, but some volunteers treat them all the same, regardless of their mood or personality. I have learned from Horse Listening to really pay attention to the horses each day. I like to think I’m better at handling each of them because of it, but I have a lot to learn. I’ve been teased because I stay so calm with the occasional balk or refusal to do what the horses do every day. I like that.
I’d love to read more of the Horse Listening to get better with our lovely horse therapists. Volunteering there has been therapy for me, too. It is my “mental health day” away from work, cell phones or computers.




Horse Listening has helped me communicate with my horse. It has made me better able to absorb the information he’s giving me & act on it appropriately. Thank you!!
