"Horses are not just a mass of muscles to be shaped in order to satisfy our desires or to produce a performance, they are sensitive beings. Expressions such as: 'The horse must do this... The horse must give that' are all too common jargon. The horse owes us nothing, it is we who have a duty to make ourselves understood."
— Phillipe Karl
"A horse whose needs are met, who has a good relationship with his handler, who is physically and mentally up to the job he's being asked to do, will be cooperative. He is attentive and curious."
— Rachael Draaisma
What We Do
At The Willing Equine our goal is to provide easily accessible information, help, and training to anyone willing to take the time to learn. It's only when we can slow down long enough to really listen to our horses that we will find the true potential in our horses and in our own abilities. Creating a willing and happy equine partner using science, positive training methods, and most of all a deep consideration for the well being of the horse.
Whether you ride western or english, competitive or for pleasure there is something to be learned. We offer local lessons, clinics, and long distance video coaching, upload regular training tutorials, blog articles, provide problem solving assistance through email, and also offer limited availability boarding/training at our facility in central Texas. Please don't hesitate to send us an email or reach out through Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube.
