Introduction to Working Equitation

Hey Fellow Rider

Looking for a FUN new discipline to share with your horse?

Want to FIX horse or rider problems with Bend, Go, Stop, Turn, Reinback or Sideways?

Dressage teaches the How,
 Obstacle work helps you and your horse make sense of Why!

And Working Equitation includes BOTH

For ALL riders, English or Western...
Learn The How & Why

  • Learn what Working Equitation is. Train  your horse how to perform  some of the key obstacles.
  • Choose to focus on one, or more, depending on your available time and horse's challenges. 
  • Identify the baseline of where your horse is at now, and what your next steps are!

No matter where you live or what discipline you ride, Working Equitation will benefit you and your horse.

Whether it's your first time, or you're already enjoying the sport, my multi-step process of obstacle improvement is valuable for both beginners and the more advanced rider to find & correct the missing building blocks that will limit your horse's ability.

The obstacles help to pinpoint where your  problems are
 and the lessons help you to focus on the exact task needed  for improvement.

  • Although I have taught this information many times before, including online, I will be trading my knowledge, experience and time, for your feedback on the materials and the delivery, and your participation in our private community (which is not on Facebook).
  •  I want to help you stay motivated to finish the course, and be there to answer your questions. Your participation will help me to design the best and most useful delivery of the program to assure your success.
  • This isn't a course you sign up for and then leave it on the shelf until sometime later.
    It will only be available to you for 3 weeks starting October 28th. 
  • If you know you are not available to participate, and ride your horse during that time, please don't sign up.

But I hope you are, and I hope you do,
because together we can create some fun and make progress with your horse.

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

The Introduction to Working Equitation section should take about an hour.
The individual obstacle lessons contain multiple steps and a checklist.
I recommend you read a step or two, then apply it.
Use the progress tracker to note your successes and challenges.
Then review your notes before your next ride to decide what to focus on to improve.
The more days you can ride like this, with small goals, the faster your progress.

The Introduction to Working Equitation program was designed to help as many riders as possible learn what WE is and begin to implement it with their horses to both introduce them to WE or see how WE practice can benefit your horse and the other disciplines you do.  

But it is also the Introductory section and first quarter of the WE Obstacles course to give you an opportunity to see some of what's included in the  larger WE Mastery program.  

This popular program has been used successfully by riders since March 2020 but I am always exploring ways to make it even more useful.  

You will have lifetime access to the lessons and 5 obstacles are covered in great detail.

I'd be happy to answer it for you. EMAIL ME

The lessons 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.  

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.

The support from the instructor and other students is a huge asset.
