Uniquely, Caroline utilises a holistic approach and draws from a number of avenues to horsemanship including but not limited to classical equitation and natural horsemanship. Instead, a "tool box" of methods and techniques can be tailored to the individual horse/owner partnership. By working with each horse as an individual sentient being and by listening to the horse, allows for the development of "two way" communication with the horse and a lasting partnership.

All methods and techniques are developed from an understanding of learning theory, communication, equine psychology and behaviour, human psychology and behaviour and work with the horses natural instincts not against them. 
Caroline is 100% committed to the well being of both horses and their human partners. Caroline does not advocate the use of gadgets, force, or coercion and is happy to train horses and riders either bitted or bitless.
