Partner Up is a three-day, intensive workshop for anyone who wants to build a better partnership with their horse. The workshop is introductory – humans only at this stage. It offers participants step-by-step guidance and support that allows them to increase their awareness and understanding of their horse.
Think of it this way: if you want to have a strong, cohesive relationship with your horse, you have to get to know each other, learn how to support each other and bring out the best in each other. It’s an equal, two-way street. You have to make each other feel that, no matter what, you’ve got each other, you’re safe.
That is the essence of what we teach in our Partner Up Workshops. They are for anyone who wants a better understanding of themselves and how their horse interprets their language. They are for anyone who wants a clearer concept of energy (human’s and horse’s) and how to use that energy. They are for anyone who wants a confident, willing, go-anywhere horse that is an extension of their own body and mind.

What to expect in a Partner Up Workshop
On the first day of Partner Up, we’ll cover horse vision, smell and hearing, how they differ from yours, and what that means to you as a rider/handler/owner. You’ll learn how to use these senses to your advantage to attain specific goals and to foster a willingness in your horse. We’ll discuss finding tension through visual acuity and being able to recognize the “soft” eye and why it’s important. We’ll talk about becoming aware and mindful of your body language, energy, thoughts and intentions and how they create your relationship with your horse. We’ll equip you with strategies to help you work on yourself and ultimately get the relationship of your dreams with your horse.
Kind words from our attendees...
Thank you so much, Mona, for this wonderful learning journey about myself and my horses.”
