Are You Ready To Create A Happy & Confident Riding Horse - Without Any Slimy Gadgets, Fear or Force?

We all dream of the perfect day with our horse. It's a beautiful warm morning. You walk out to the paddock, your horse looks at you and whinnys to greets you. You arrange their breakfast, and them sit in silence listening to them eating, and enjoy being in the moment.

A little later it's time to ride. Your horse walks up to be haltered, and stands perfect still while you saddle him. He sidepasses himself to the mounting block, and stands still after you mount. You ask him to turn away from home, and he confidently leaves his friends, happy to be going on a wonderful adventure with you. As you ride through the trees, you enjoy these wonderful moments of connection between you & your horse. Slowly the deserted beach appears in front of you. You are in perfect connection with your horse.

But to achieve this type of connection, the approach we use to train our horses is critically important.

As horse owners, we understand the only way to develop that dream relationship, is to put the horse first in everything that we do together.

We want a willing relationship - not a partnership based on fear or force.

That's why the 1st step to TRUE partnership means listening to the horse.

  • Most horse owners aim for 'obedience' with their horses. Or worse again, the force their horses to go through situations - when they are too scared to think & so their horses lose confidence & start having 'problems' that need to be fixed :( We don't want scared & unhappy horses!
  • We're not looking to ride heavy, switched-off & dull equines or own groundhog day horses who never seem to improve.
  • Instead we use the Listening to the Horse™ technique, and we truly work with each individual horse, build confidence in the horse, protect their natural lightness, curiosity & softness AND do it all in a way that is 110% kind to the horse.

We all want to do the best for our horses, but sometimes we can struggle with 'how to get there'...

  • Is this program for English or Western riders? Whether you love to ride in California in jeans & a fabulous western saddle, ride with kangaroos in Australia in a rugged Aussie stock saddle, do a shoulder out with poise & grace in a dressage saddle, or cross dress like I do, in a deliciously adjustable baroque saddle from Germany and a California hackamore, we've got you covered! The Listening to the Horse Method works for all types of riders & horses, no matter what clothes you love to wear!
  • Can I get instant access to EVERYTHING when I join? Yes! When you join, you will get a grateful kiss from your horse (who doesn’t love a horse smooch?!) plus instant access to all the modules & bonuses in the Listening to the Horse Method. In the VIP edition, You also get 8 weeks access to our online coaches, in our private students facebook group. And the great news is that this group access & daily coaching support begins the day you join this program!
  • How long does each session with my horse need to be? We believe in quality, not quantity. And luckily, so do our horses! So if you can spend 2 to 3 x fifteen minute sessions with your horse each week - that sounds perfect. Plus with our thoughtfully designed ‘small chunk’ exercises & strategies, you’ll be able to have fun and completely avoid overwhelming you or your horse!
  • Is the LTTH Method suitable for new horses or first time horse owners? 110% yes! The first step for any horse-human partnership, is to work together, understand each other and build confidence. It is magical to see how much trust & connection you can develop and how you can build an awe-inspiring partnership with your horse when you listen! So it’s perfect if you are the proud owner of a new horse, or if your horse is the proud owner of a first time human!
  • What equipment will I need? For the groundwork exercises you will need a halter. For riding, your normal saddle & bridle is fine :) So you should have everything you need already in your tack room.
  • Does the LTTH Method include both groundwork & riding lessons? Yes, the first 4 modules are all groundwork! Groundwork is the best way we’ve found to help both you & your horse build confidence & practise some really important exercises & strategies. These are also perfect for younger, novice and older horses. But because we also know that no hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle :) we also include TONS of riding lessons at all levels that you & your horse will love!
  • My horse isn’t started under saddle yet, will this program be suitable for us? At Listening to the Horse, we understand that the earliest a horse’s body will be physically mature is at 5.5 years of age. As this course can all be done on the ground, all horses have to be 4 years of age or over. We are very mindful not to do too much work with young horses who are not yet fully developed.
  • I’m too busy right now! If I purchase now, can I do this course when I have more time? Absolutely! I know it’s a crazy time in the world right now, so that’s why you get unlimited 24/7 access to all the course modules and bonuses, on all your smartphones, laptops & ipads, so the Listening to the Horse method is ready for you - at the perfect time for you & your horse, whether it's this week, next week, or in a months time :)
  • What currency are the prices in? All our prices are in USD dollars. I know that takes a bit of head scratching if you live in Europe or Australia, but I’ve found this handy website that makes it easy to convert the numbers into your local currency :)
  • What is VAT? If you live in Europe, then the grey suits in Brussels have said that all online businesses have to charge Europeans VAT. I’m sorry about that. Trust me, horses are a lot simpler to figure out (!), than keeping up with all this VAT stuff!
  • What technology do you need? You will need a computer or smartphone/tablet so you can watch the video modules & get inspired to try out some amazing strategies with your horse! For the VIP edition you''ll also need a facebook account, so you can join our exclusive students online community & get support from our incredible coaches!
  • Do I have to share videos of training my horse? Lots of people hate the thought of being on camera, I get it! :) So for VIP students, you don't have to film yourself at any stage if you don't feel comfortable. It's totally your decision.
  • My horse & 1 are experienced, confident, and we can already do a lot of lateral work & collection. Is this suitable for me? If you are looking for advanced lessons, like flying lead changes, garrocha work, or the perfect half pass, this course does not cover these more advanced elements. We can recommend other programs that may be more suitable for your skill level. Email: [email protected] for a chat anytime.
  • How long do I get access to the online program for? You get unlimited access, 24/7 on all internet devices, so you can watch anytime you wish for 4 years from the date of purchase or the life-time of this course, whichever is greater.
  • Do you have a refund policy? If you enroll in The Listening To The Horse Method, and don’t get all the skills, strategies & exercises you need to help you create trust, confidence & connection in everything you do with your horse, on the ground & in the saddle, using 100% kind methods in the first 14 days, just send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to give you your money back.
  • What is the refund policy for the 2 pay option? You also have a 14 day 100% money back refund policy. If you decided to cancel after this, there is no refund, as the 14 day refund period has expired. If you miss or cancel payments in the 2 pay, your VIP access to this program & the community group, calls and all parts of this program will end.
  • I have another question I need help with. Don’t worry :) The good news is that I’m usually online every day, so just drop me an email with any questions you have to [email protected], tell me about your horses & your situation, and I will give you my honest advice on whether the LTTH Method is right for you or not.
