Deepen your connection with your horse, by tuning in to their subtle responses to help them release tension.  Transform your relationship with your horse by learning The Masterson Method foundational techniques in a Weekend Seminar.

More Masterson Trainings & Clinics


Horses that serve in equine-assisted learning or therapy programs can be challenged in different ways than performance horses, both physically and psychologically. This application of The Masterson Method is focused entirely on these horses and their needs.
