About Karen and Motivational Horsemanship

'Creating Balance between Horses and their Humans'

Karen's is passionate about teaching you to enjoy training your horse.


By blending a holistic approach with science, you are guided to a true connection of mind, body and spirit with your horse.  Through the principles and theory of positive reinforcement, classical horsemanship and movement science, communication is built, clarified and strengthened.  Relationships improve and blossom through movement exercises, on the ground and riding.

"What I can get your horse to do is less important to me than what you can learn to do with  your own horse.”


“The work I do and teach provides straightforward information on helping people understand their horses and their behaviors."


This way they can make better decisions relating to the training methods they choose to use. I help people follow their own path and reach their own potential, empowering them with confidence and progress on their horsemanship journey.


"I am a trainer of humans and their horses that uses the practical applications of the science of behavior and learning theory to teach safe, ethical and sustainable solutions."


I favor positive reinforcement training whenever possible and I always look for the best scenario and training solution based on the unique blend of owner, horse, task and environment. 


"I don’t use a single ‘method’ since my work is based on scientific research and evidence based facts."


My job as teacher is to translate that research into practical applications and help find the right tools for each situation.


“My principles and understanding of horses can be used to compliment other training methods."


I do my best to provoke thought based on facts, so people can choose what resonates with them and their horse.


“I teach people to have fun while learning."


Lessons and  workshops are balanced with theory and practical, delivered with a sense of humor and encouragement of participation.  Encouraging people to have fun and trust their instincts increases their confidence in their skills and growing knowledge.


I listen carefully to what each student wants and needs so that I can find individual solutions to each situation.  I work with you to create the learning experience you really need by listening carefully to what you feel.   We take this learning experience directly to your horse as he become your teacher.


"What I can get your horse to do is less important to me that what you can learn to do with your own horse.”

Motivational Horsemanship's  

"I Love My Horse, BUT..." Video Coaching Program is a revolutionary way of learning.  


This education program is designed exclusively for you to 'help YOU help your horse'.  It is a program that teaches you to observe and identify 'behaviors' and help you create strategies to change those behaviors.  


It has elements of both heart-centered, science and factual evidence, so it is not a quick 'fix', but an optimal change in your relationship and connection with your horse.

Overwhelmed by Google and the Internet??? 


Do you wish you had someone to help you find the best solution for a specific problem or behavior for you and your horse?  How many of us have gone down that ‘rabbit hole’ of researching one thing and boom, one story and opinion and consequent link leads us to 2 more stories and opinions, and another and another and so on and so on, ad nauseam? 


Research can take you in directions which are wildly irrelevant to your original query.  It’s easy to get sidetracked when doing research and lose track of time.
