I have been so lucky to dedicate my life to connecting with, training, and learning from horses. It is true that training horses is a journey – if you stay open-minded and free of ego!
As a young girl, I was aware of some kind of magic the horses had. I know that can be a silly thought, but I’m not sure what else to call it. Connection with a non-verbal, entirely different species and developing trust, confidence, and a language that both horse and human understand is magic to me. I knew this was my purpose and calling – to hear them, advocate for them, and help connect horse and human. My passion for the breath-taking classic hunters, to the incredible athleticism, scope and power of the jumpers, fuels my desire to connect the very different worlds of show horses with the remarkable benefits of working in a more mindful, connected way.
…we were welcome to participate in the training to continue our relationship with Cal and learn about Claire’s training style. The training was systematic and thorough, always focused on positive developments, including supporting his learning to make ‘the right decisions’.
