Equestrianship is an internal art that expresses itself outwardly through communication, riding and experience with horses. This program offers an extraordinary opportunity to develop your intuition in tandem with riding skills through exercises, groundwork and horse games.

Through a lifetime of love and skills in Equine Human Development, Dr. T has come to know horses as divine mirrors and considers her herd as partners. Knowing that they are masters of reading energy patterns and seek loving relation and communication with humans, Dr. T has developed ways of partnering people and horse and teaching “Intuitive Horse” in that way.

​Dr. T. has developed programs for Holistic Health and techniques for Integrative Health that are derived from both the wisdom of the ages and discoveries on modern brain science and physics.
