Hey Fellow Working Equitation Rider

Is your ability to travel still being limited?

Are clinics you were planning on attending
being cancelled?

You don't have to stop preparing for Working Equitation,
and you Can still get coaching.

Start at your own level and work at your own pace
in this unique 30 day online clinic.
Learn The How & Why, of Working Equitation Obstacles

Includes: How does this relate to Working Equitation rules?
The laws of physics and your horse, and More!

You've told yourself, this is the year I will:

  • Finally get my horse light and listening to my aids.
  • Improve my horse’s health by helping them be more supple and balanced.
  • Compete for the first time in Working Equitation.
  • Be ready to move up a level.

And then time goes by and you realize you don't know:

  • How to get your horse to listen better.
  • Why the things you do don’t seem to improve how your horse goes.
  • Where to start, which steps to do first, or what those steps are.
  • What is missing or getting in the way of progressing to the next level.

You are not alone. This happens to everyone.

That's why I created the
 How & Why of Working Equitation Obstacles, online program.

A place to give you the tools you need through Videos, PDF's, Specific steps and Lessons.
The support of a Safe Community to ask questions and tell us of your progress and challenges.
Feedback on your questions and also on optional videos.

And the Confidence that You Can Achieve Your Goals
for You, and Your horse.

This online program teaches you how to train or retrain your horse
for the obstacles used in Working Equitation Ease of Handling and Speed trials.

How each obstacle is supposed to be performed
How to modify for the North American lower levels.
Not in North America? No problem, the training is still useful and valuable.
An innovative multi-step method with attention to detail that improves both the rider and horse.
Your horse improves balance and engagement, so they enjoy it as much as you do.

Trish, Thank you. You are so responsive!  
I can’t believe how you are up all hours of the day and night!

I must take this opportunity to tell you how amazing your course is!  
The amount of information and lesson content is extraordinary!   


Kudos to you for all your work and efforts!  
Now if only I can get myself video’d soon to take advantage of your expert eye and critique. That has also been a weak point for me: learning the technology to download, edit, upload, etc. So your course has even been a catalyst in that sort of  education.

Thank you, thank you for putting this wonderful course together.

Lesson program delivered over 4 weeks  includes 1 years access
and a Private Community for your Working Equitation questions.

Takes you from where you are now, to understanding the best way to prepare your horse to be confident, balanced and comfortable with the obstacles.

If you can safely walk, stop and turn your horse. The rest we can work on.

The more time and effort you can put into the lessons and community, the faster you will progress.
Horses and people both progess better with short, targeted and consistent lessons.

Each section we will look closely at 4 or 5 different obstacles and include as many of the 5 main technical challenges as we can, for variety.

These include:

  • Bends, arcs and leads
  • Straight with a stop
  • Straight without a stop
  • Lateral movement
  • Reinback

You are encouraged to ask questions in Our Private Community so you will always have lots to work on and one full years access is included, to review at any time. 

My background as a horse trainer,
knowledge of the rules, and
online teaching ability, with attention to detail means

You get a 'Virtual Coach', when you need it.

My job is to help you train and prepare your horse to perform WE obstacles correctly,
according to the rules, for the level you're at.

If your horse is consistently scoring 8 or better on all obstacles, you may not need this program.

But if you are new and don't know what it's all about,
or experienced but not scoring as well as you could be in your level,
this program is designed for you.

Starting at the beginning, to make sure no steps are missed.

How & Why Program Benefits

This programs format allows you to learn at a time that suits you

Learn my Multi-step Method to introduce an obstacle to the horse so nothing is skipped that becomes an issue later.

And if weather becomes an issue, don't worry. You get a full years access so follow along in the community until the weather is better.

Bonus #1

Don't have Working Equitation Obstacles to practice on?

No problem!

As your first bonus you will get one years access to my DIY WE online course
which allows you to train for many of the obstacles with very little equipment.

The ones not covered can still be introduced by recognizing their main technical challenge.
You can then set up similar tests, which we can discuss in the community.
When I teach clinics people tell me they don't have Working Equitation obstacles at home.
That is why I created the Do It Yourself Working Equitation online course.

I had a young trail horse in the US to quickly prepare for an A-rated show and didn't have any obstacles.

 I built some like I show you in this online course and,

We won our Novice A division.

And these practice obstacles don't take much space or time to set up.

Bonus #2

Online Community and 

 5 Video Assessments Included!

Unless you can convince your horse to watch all the videos,
you are going to have to show them what to do.
That brings us to the other major advantage I've mentioned, the private community.

You can post questions, pictures and have the option of including some short videos.
 The more you ask questions, discuss and offer suggestions for other riders,
the more you'll get out of this program.

In the community you'll find riders with similar challenges.

Some riders or horses are new to Working Equitation, or to obstacles.
Some horses are needing to be retrained to understand how to use their bodies better.
And some riders are looking for what's missing to move up a level or just understand what is required.

As a Member You Get:


  • One years access to the What & How of Working Equitation Obstacles lessons,  the Community and the Do It Yourself Working Equitation course.
  • This program will include all 19 obstacles (introduced in baby steps over the 4 weeks) to help your horse to understand what is needed, and 5 Bonus Video Assessments to check your progress during the course.
  • Rules and rule exceptions depending on the level will be explained and questions welcomed and encouraged in our safe community.

I took this WE obstacle online course and I learned new ways to train the obstacles, analyze my team's strengths and weaknesses. It pushed me to look at my obstacle work and find areas of improvement.  It works for all levels and all horses.

It addressed the main weaknesses in execution of an obstacle and gave me tools to help myself as well as my horse. I was able to improve my obstacle work by following the clear directions, that included video lessons and analysis in the supportive online community.

I saw the sport in a new light!

 Trish was prompt and helpful in working through my enquiries, and had good knowledge, even of the Australian rulebooks. It was great that I could relate this course to what we are doing in Australia.
I liked the step by step videos and having access to video transcripts.
Practical and Valuable for Anyone who wants to Enhance their Skills. Really Enjoyed it. Thank you!!
