Equestrian-Human Support Services
With her Equestrian Canda & BHS (British Horse Society) coaching qualification and decades of work and play with horses, Kat's equestrian experience covers a multitude of disciplines and practice. Kat's focus has always been on first building relationships in order to work stress-free with animals. The fundamental practice of establishing a mutually respectful relationship with your horse is primary. This foundation opens the doors to a lifetime's pleasure with your equine friend whether you ride English or Western. While Kat grew up riding English in the UK and trained with the BHS, she has been deepening her understanding of Western riding for 30 years since moving to Canada.
YogaEQ is how Kat describes her equestrian training as she focuses on the union ("Union" is the simple translation of "yoga") between the species and the development of harmonious relationships. Discover how to 'speak horse' and understand reactions, how to anticipate/train/react without escalating tension. Kat employs the wide range of skills, knowledge and experience gleaned over the past 50 years in bodywork and animal training, referencing the work of many established equine therapists and trainers. Exercise, schooling, private tuition available. Horses taken for training (their humans can join too). Pricing based on hourly rate. Registered and Licensed with Sport Canada/Equestrian Canada.
