The Idea 

I am passionate about helping women over 40 to be able to connect to their horses on a soul level, in the saddle and on the ground.
What I find is that they are sometimes afraid of their horse and don’t understand what their horse want to tell them. What they really want is to truly connect and spend harmonious and fear-free time with their horse.
I help these riders find a safe, balanced and well-coordinated seat, so that they can find subtle communication and deep connection with their horse when riding.
And I help them to understand themselves better – physically, mentally, and emotionally – so that they can connect with their horse on a deeper level, and become The Intuitive Rider they and their horse want them to be.
My goal is to develop individual solutions which make learning fun and enjoyable for both, horse and rider, independent of discipline and level of experience.


My FREE gift for YOU:

The Free Rider Posture Tip

I will give you one core improvement you can make in your riding posture. All you have to do is send me a photo of yourself on horseback. 🙂
There are always about one hundred things to improve in your riding, and it’s hard to know where to start. But what if I could give you one quick tip – for free – , identifying one postural change that can make a big difference, so you can find a more balanced and connected seat, and communicate more precisely with your horse?
Simply send me a photo of yourself on horseback. I will take a look and find one core thing. I will email you one quick tip to get started.
I have been doing this for 30 years, and I found that usually within the first seconds of seeing a horse and rider, I can see the most important postural change you can easily make. A lot of other things can fall into place when we have identified and fixed this one.
I understand that a photo is just a moment in time. So, don’t go crazy to find the one perfect photo. You can send me several. Just email them to me.

Today I was riding a very nervous mare, she’s very fast in this nervous mood, always shaking her head and it’s very difficult to communicate with her, relax her and concentrate her. In this situations, I always feel like I’m trying to talk to her through very thick wall and she can’t hear me! But today, I was just thinking about soft eyes, umbrella breathing and building my blocks and it was absolutely different!! After I started using soft eyes and umbrella breathing, she slowly calmed down and after a while, she was absolutely relaxed.. She even stopped shaking her head! It was really great feeling and I was so happy! Till the end of the lesson, she didn’t get nervous again and she was really concentrated and satisfied, really amazing for us both.

Thank you, Carla, for the help with my riding yesterday.  I very much enjoyed learning from you and it will serve me well on the trail.  You have so much to offer.



I learned so much today! Your lesson was worth several traditional lessons. It is a good way of introducing riders to you. I’ve never said this to anyone, but perhaps you should increase your price. My horse thanks you, too.



After 15 years of not riding, I felt taken care of and taken seriously by Carla.

Thank you for a wonderful morning with so much good stuff to learn and remember. Tonic says thank you as well, we had a wonderful ride this afternoon.

I too have horses in my past that were victims of my ignorance. Horses who were not allowed to say “No Thank you, I’m not ready for that” Horses who understood me way more than I understood them. So grateful that people like yourself are willing to share your knowledge so I can move forward with my obsession:) I gave up riding and Horses for 15 years because I just couldn’t continue with the way things were and couldn’t find a better way…until now. I appreciate you sharing your journey as it fills me with the hope that change can happen and help is available.
