If you crave a deep, powerful, truly conscious equine relationship... then YOU MUST be willing to address your thoughts and your beliefs about your horse, and yourself. This is especially important for those of you who have had an injury or experience that has left you fearful of working with or riding your horse again. Your thoughts and beliefs ➡ lead to your actions ➡ which lead to your results in the world. When you transform your thoughts and beliefs... it automatically changes your actions and your results allowing you to establish real and lasting change. Ezra focuses on helping you transform the relationship with your horse by having you work on your "side of the pen" first, so that when you then address the relationship with them, it will be much more effortless and joy-filled. And that resistance that you and your horse have been experiencing begins to melt away.
Understanding how your horse thinks and communicates will allow you to stop spending your time struggling, and start spending your time enjoying this amazing animal! Every horse has their own path of learning that they must go through in order to become the partner of your dreams. Ezra focuses on specific activities with your horse, so he can review these, break them down and give you direct feedback to ensure you're immediately addressing your issues... and you can begin to see improvements right away. He teaches you about the progression of your horse's emotional and mental journey so these can teach you how they want to be understood. Once you can truly listen to how your horse communicates, it allows you to guide them from fear, resistance and confusion to understanding, agreement, and partnership...
the true art of equine connection.
Understanding that your horse is your mirror and they have the answer to the challenges you’re experiencing with them, is the most powerful way to make massive transformation in your horsemanship and create the equine relationship of your dreams... you just have to learn to listen! Ezra shows you how to receive your horse’s feedback, allowing you to know what steps to take in each moment. Begin to see the world through your horse’s eyes, and listen to what your horse has to say about YOU. What if the moment of your greatest challenge is also the moment right before your greatest breakthrough! He’ll help you gain a true understanding of why you and your horse are together, and discover the magic of this unique relationship.
When you become a real leader in your horse’s eyes it will immediately allow you to feel safer and more confident while on the ground and in the saddle. Once you move through the first three pillars, it's time for you to establish true leadership with your horse by creating what Ezra calls, a "Herd of Two". This is where your mindset shifts really begin to take hold and make changes, allowing you to develop a deeper relationship with your horse by creating a safe, trusted partner. In this step, you ask the question “who do I have to become in order to be the leader my horse needs?” With Ezra's guidance, you'll answer this and begin to practice true leadership, so that you finally know there is a strong partnership in place, and not just a horse and rider...
so riding truly becomes fun again!
The final step is bringing your own personal growth work together with practical natural horsemanship. Ezra guides you through foundational groundwork and saddle work exercises and skill building practices to identify any gaps in your technique, and from there lay the foundation for truly evolutionary horsemanship. You'll also learn the common mistakes that people make when trying to “train” their horse, so that you can let go of the bad habits that are limiting your potential. Bringing your own personal growth work together with your horse’s transformation allows you to move into the dance of equine connection where you have balance, flow, fluidity and profound communication. From this place, you will be able to establish an effortless, lasting partnership with your horse so you can regain and maintain the joy, trust and excitement you once had.
