Discover your new ability to understand and speak your horse’s language.
Through this online program, horse owners and trainers are transforming their relationships with their horses into meaningful and purposeful partnerships.
Have you ever felt like you and your horse are speaking two completely different languages?
It feels like the connection and partnership you have always wanted is slipping further and further away as frustration builds, both for you and your horse.
Despite trying everything. . .
- Your horse is becoming more and more tense, mentally and physically
- The trust is gone and your horse is scared and startled by the small things
- Your riding isn’t progressing the way you’d like it to
- Even the smallest of tasks, like trailer loading, now feel like massive obstacles
You are not alone!
So many horse owners come to Doug feeling incapable and disappointed, their instincts telling them there is a path forward, but not knowing what direction to take.
Lesson after lesson, treat after treat, book after book, video after video, you feel like you’ve tried everything and yet the wall keeps getting higher.
There is one root problem for all of this, and the solution is easier than you may think! All too often we try to train and communicate with our horses in our human language, and we forget that we speak two completely different languages. One is based on words and intonation, the other on body movements, pressure and energy.
With one small shift in perspective and approach, you will notice changes unfolding quickly, feel empowered, and anxieties diminishing.

"...With his extensive knowledge and understanding of horses, Doug was able to break through and give both my horse and I confidence and excitement to work together again. He calmly and precisely taught us both some basic concepts so important in dressage....release pressure when the horse responds, separate the front and back of the horse, and allow the horse to think and figure stuff out for themselves."
Doug Walsh works with horses on a beautiful 157-acre farm in Ocala, Florida. He has spent 12 years helping people understand how energy, movement, emotion, and connection work together to affect how their horse responds.
Doug helps develop relationships between horse and human that are so profound that the horse will follow the rider's commands even in distractions.
