ride.trust.connect – Distance Learning

The ride.trust.connect Program

Do you know what your horse really wants to tell you?

Do you know what you are actually telling your horse?

Are you secretly afraid of your horse?

Do you experience any doubt about your abilities as a rider?

Do you fear there’s something important missing but you don’t know what that is?

A Distance Learning Program by Carla Bauchmueller

In the 6 months ride.trust.connect Program you will learn how to…

  • Understand your horse better,
  • Be like a “horse whisperer” to your horse
  • Let go of fear you have whether riding or on the ground
  • Develop a truly balanced seat and know what that means to your horse
  • Be a better person for your horse
  • Understand your own emotional life better
  • Improve your quality of life

This is a transformational experience for both you and your horse.  You will work on your inner self with personal development processes that will amaze you.  You will work together with your horse to dramatically improve your relationship, even if it’s good already.

Your horse becomes your life coach together with my personal support and the support of a small group (max 5) of like-minded horse people.

All of this from the comfort of your home, without having to travel anywhere!

Prepare to be blown away and have the experience you’ve always wanted with your horse.

Six Modules that I will teach:

I am going to teach these modules on the phone. There will be small “homework” assignments where you can deepen and play with the things taught. You will also be supported through your personal process by me personally and the group.

The group and I will be there for support, new insights and tips to deepen your relationship with your horse, with yourself, and with other beings.

1) Mutual Respect vs Control

You will learn how to set very clear boundaries from a space of mutual respect.

You will understand how to stay centered and focused in your work with your horse, allowing for a deep connection.

2) Fear vs Confidence

In this module you will get to explore the fears you might have around your horse, understand them and finally overcome them.

There will be space for trust and confidence again.

3) The Body

You will discover the true core stability that does not just give you a stable physical position but will also boost your confidence in the saddle and on the ground.

Physical alignment and emotions go hand in hand. – You will feel much better by finding alignment.

4) Feel What They Feel

Learn how to “read your horse’s mind”. Connect from deep within through meditation techniques and gentle touches.

5) Anger vs Grounding

Learn to use the energy of strength that’s hidden behind anger, so that you can learn to set clear boundaries.

Find out where you disconnected from this energy in the past.

Learn how to switch this powerful energy on and off as needed for all interactions with your horse.

6) Joy and Enthusiasm

Joy and enthusiasm will gain more room in your being with your horse. You will learn how to overcome perfectionism and how to forgive yourself and be patient.

Happy ride.trust.connect Students

I always struggled with fear, and working with horses brought this out for me in a very clear way.  Fear overshadowed my joy of riding, and I needed to do something about it.  I read books, and worked with trainers, but nobody seemed to be able to really help me with this specific issue. 

When I singed up for the ride.trust.connect program I did not know what to expect.  I was absolutely surprised how much Carla could help me addressing the underlying aspects of my personal experience of fear.  She also helped me understand the interconnectedness of fear, frustration, perfectionism, and self confidence.  I also liked the important aspect of learning about energy which is a big part of her course. 

This course was extremely helpful for me and I can highly recommend it.

Gabi Cressmann

In our six-month time in the Life Coaching course, two of my other friends and I met with Carla on the phone to discuss our progress with our horses, along with discussing the topic for the month.  We also participated in exercises which we could do in the comfort of our own homes.  The course with Carla was a way to improve riding techniques by discussing technical aspects, along with learning ways to visualize, and improve relaxation and confidence.

Determined to improve my riding and overcome my fears, I found these sessions with Carla and my friends to be very encouraging to me, as a rider.  There was a definite change in my approach to my horse on the ground and in the saddle.

I highly recommend her course to anyone who wants to take their riding skills to another level!
