Anne Gage ~ Confident Horsemanship
Spread the word!

You love your horse, but …

sometimes you feel like your horse hates you. You’re losing confidence.  You’re frustrated with your lack of progress. You’ve even thought of giving up.

You’ve recently started or returned to riding.  You’ve been focused on raising your children, pursuing your career or both … and now you’ve finally got the time to do this.  

You’ve bought your first horse or you’re starting over with a new horse after many years with a reliable partner … and it’s not how you thought it would be.

You’ve been riding for a long time but now it’s different. You get nervous.  You’ve had a fall, have been or are worried about getting hurt.  You have so many responsibilities that you can’t afford to be injured.

The advice you’ve been getting just doesn’t feel right. You don’t want to use force or gadgets to just make him do it.  You wish there was a better way.

I work with horsewomen just like you to help you achieve your dream partnership with your horse so that you both feel CALM, CONFIDENT AND CONNECTED in any situation.  I help you to:

  • understand why your horse does what he does so we can find and eliminate the root cause of unwanted behaviours.  Without using gadgets or force.
  • be more balanced, supple and relaxed in the saddle so your horse can become more balanced, less resistant, and easier to ride.
  • build the partnership of your dreams knowing that your horse enjoys being with you as much as you enjoy being with him

Wouldn’t it feel amazing if your horse responded willingly to your most subtle cues – from the ground as well as in the saddle.

Can you see yourself riding your horse easily and comfortably – balanced, relaxed and in tune with each other?

Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have an alternative to the “just make him do it” training methods.  

All that is possible! I can show you how to achieve it.

Just like a human relationship therapist, I see things from both sides, find the reasons for the problems and give you both the tools you need to have a healthy partnership.  I teach you how to:

  • Speak the Same Language – You’ll learn how your horse interprets your body language, what you need to do to make your message understandable, and how to accurately read his body language.  As your communication improves, so does your level of trust in each other.
  • Play by the Appropriate Ground Rules – You’ll learn how to set clear, consistent and appropriate boundaries that keep you safe, and make your horse feel calm and comfortable with you.  By knowing how and when to move your horse (it’s not just about moving his feet), you’ll also earn his respect and trust.  
  • Develop Positive Posture – You’ll learn how to build the best posture for you and your horse so that you eliminate stress, stiffness and resistance.  You’ll be completely in tune with each other.

Are you ready to have the calm, confident and connected partnership with your horse you’ve been dreaming of?

“In an industry often known for deception and quick fixes, Anne Gage stands out as a figure of integrity and an advocate of the horse.  An experienced horse person, but a bit rusty after a few years off, I was nervous and lacking the confidence to deal with the behaviour problems my horse was exhibiting.

Anne has not only facilitated a relationship of mutual trust and respect between me and my horse but taught me to be a better rider and a critically thinking horsewoman.  I have learned that much of what I was previously taught about riding was incorrect and I have seen and felt the amazing difference in the horse when my riding has been correct.

Anne’s style of coaching is always patient and supportive of horse and rider.  She works in the moment addressing what is needed most rather than working to a set lesson plan.  She understands that we all learn in different ways and is interested in helping you in the way that you need it most whether it is by explanation, demonstration or just by doing.  She knows how to strike a balance between being informative and teaching while also allowing a student the freedom to make their own discoveries.  Each lesson I have with Anne leaves me excited and aware of my potential and I can’t wait for the next one!”
