"My relationship with my horses is very important to me. Karen has helped me learn better communication skills with them. They are more likely to cooperate with me if they understand what I’m asking. Our online play has become fun for all of us!
I don’t get to ride as often as I’d like, so I really look forward to sessions with Karen and our 'horse time’. I ride three very different horses with very different personalities and energy levels.
Karen has an amazing eye for tiny details, in both horse and human. She can see what I need to do to make big shifts in my horse's posture, attitudes and connection.
With me, she makes small adjustments in posture, hand position, shifts in weight and my rides just keep getting better. I think my horses are pretty happy too!
My monthly in-person lessons are videoed and I use her video coaching service to analyze my ground play and rides. That is very helpful between lessons.
I have used her ‘Ask Karen’ service for all sorts of things.
From horse health issues to proper hoof care and dental care. From saddle fit to finding the right equipment through her loaning her favorites. The latest was all her bitless bridles, so I could find the appropriate head gear that best suits each horse.
If Karen doesn’t have or know the answer, she’ll find it!
Thank you Karen for your years of whole horse care support. I look forward to many more!
