About Carla

Carla Bauchmueller has been passionate about horses since her childhood and is a respected and noteworthy trainer of both horses and riders throughout Germany and Europe. She has a wide range of qualifications and has worked with many prestigious trainers over the last 20 years.

carla on horseCarla began her training from a young age in dressage and show jumping. After completing high school, she attended the University of Muenster, Germany where she earned a degree in economics and then went on to do 2 years of full-time training at the FS-Equestrian Center in Reken, Germany, an innovative center for leisure riders for over 30 years. (Linda Tellington wrote her first book here).

Over the years, she has become familiar with different styles of riding such as western and classical Spanish and French dressage riding and in the process has worked with a variety of horses and riders.

Carla is accredited by the German National Federation for horse riding (FN - Federation National) and achieved the highest level, that of trainer level A.

In addition to her accreditation by the German National Federation, she is a level 3 Centered Riding Instructor and has been licensed by Sally Swift since 1994. During her years of teaching and riding, she has continued to see different trainers as a way to improve her own abilities so that she employs a wide range of techniques and talents.

As a means to better understand balance, she studied yoga and became an instructor, improving her ability to train riders and use exercise effectively. It is through her own intuition that she finds what her stundents need, tailoring to their individual situations, and finds the best course of action.

Carla currently is a traveling riding instructor, with clients in Europe and the US, working with owners who want to improve their riding abilities through clinics and private lessons and having their horses trained. She lives in California with her husband.

Hello California!

We - my husband, our dog Colubus and I living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am very happy to be here and looking forward to getting to know lots of people and horses. So feel free to contact me.

I am available for lessons, horse training and clinics in the Bay Area and for clinics all over the world.

There is a series of free talks lined up covering all different kinds of topics around horses and horse riding - like "What can help me improve my balance?", "What does `crookedness` mean and how does it affect my horse`s well-being?" or "How can I use my reins in a horse-friendly way?" It will be a mix of theory and unmounted practices to make studying theory fun.

You can contact me by phone or email. I am looking forward to talking to you.
