These sessions are aimed at improving the relationship you have with your horse according to a technique I developed, and are combined with the AnthroPaNimaL technique for the achievement of your goals.
The sessions are held at your stable with your horse.
My training consists of giving you simple, safe tools to unite harmony and mutual respect during approaches.
The horse responds to a repetition of gestures, sounds, and the rider's posture. If the gestures aren't clear, the horse won't know what to do, which command to respond to and when. As all the work is done on the ground, it's important to communicate well with the horse and be aware of its presence and mood. State of mind also plays a major role in horse-human communication. Take time to observe the horse during games. Knowing "is he with me or is he with his friends is important?”
Let's not forget that the horse senses our energy long before there is any initial contact with it.
Why work on the ground and not in the saddle?
Everything you do on the ground with the horse is a reproduction of gestures and posture in the saddle. This creates trust, as you harmonize your energies by centring yourself with the horse.

AnthroPaNimal Coaching, what does that mean?
I am a Certified Practitioner in AnthroPaNimal Coaching; it is an assistance in order to help you find your personal resources to improve the quality of the relationship with your horse and set realistic goals.
This approach based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) takes into account communication, learning, and life changes and/or contexts to establish a relationship of trust with your equine companion. Our perception of a situation influences our behaviour. An opening in the perception will bring about a transformation of the behaviours of your animal.
You want a better relationship of trust with your horse, and you cannot achieve it despite the energy you put into it. Each individual has his own reality with his life experiences. To support you and promote your success with your horse, I accompany you in the search for your own solutions toward a human-horse-winning relationship.
Even if training is groundwork, I gained knowledge and stability as a rider and I developed a better relationship with horses.

Thank you, Christine, for introducing me to gestural communication with horses.
Thanks to my sessions with you, I gained self-confidence as a rider and developed a better relationship with the horses on which I took my riding lessons.
It wasn't long before I was taking level 1 jumping lessons on more difficult or level 4 horses. That's when I realized that all the work you were making me do on the ground was paying off on horseback.
