the Master Class OnLine program

My popular Master Class now has its ONLINE version:

The Master Class OnLine

Joyful distance learning for you;

no matter where you and your horse live.

The Master Class OnLine program is designed to create a vital connection between horse and rider that enhances both the rider’s and horse’s experience and enjoyment.

From the comfort of your home, you will experience learning in a small group, and get a lot of personal support from Carla. The technical side of this program will be simple.

This program is a fantastic opportunity for you as a participant to fully take advantage of my expertise.

You will have my support for 6 months and be able to pick my brain on a daily basis via our own international CB-Riding Facebook group.

We take a step by step approach to help you progress easily and naturally.

In the 6 months of working together in a very small group (4-8 participants) we will cover 6 topics that are building up on each other.

If you don’t want to plan for 6 months at first, it is also possible to book only the first part of the Master Class OnLine for 3 months. If you feel like it, you can of course continue afterwards and book the second part for another 3 months as well.

The topics we will walk through in part 1 of the Master Class:

1) The Four Basics of Centered Riding
You will be mastering these four core principles of Centered Riding: Soft Eyes, Breathing, Centering, Balance.

You will experience deeply felt awareness and changes in your balance.

2) Following the Horse’s Movement
You will learn how to feel exactly how your horse moves under you, the large as well as extremely subtle movements. You will learn how you can use your seat in an efficient way so that you can direct your horse to do what you want it to do.

Your communication with your horse through your seat becomes almost invisible and the use of hands is minimalized.

3) Straightness of the Rider
A straight rider distributes her weight evenly in the saddle, allowing the horse to move freely.

A rider in alignment frees up her spine and joints to fulfill the complicated task of responding to the horse’s movement and giving subtle aids.

Part 2 is going to be on the following topics:

4) Straightness of the Horse

Straightness is crucial for horse and rider in order to find a perfect balance, alignment and self-carriage. Only a straight horse can truly use its back and will stay healthier for much longer.

You will learn correct lateral work which is a key ingredient for straightness.

5) Soft Contact

In clinic 5 you will be working on a soft, steady contact to the horse’s mouth where you feel this subtle, precious connection to the horse. There is no need to pull or hold on or yank or jerk.

This will allow you to let go of the guilt of pulling on the reins.

6) Half Halts/Transitions

We will refine the communication between you and your horse. You will learn to subtly influence balance in transitions or for more collection.

Through your improved understanding and technique, your horse will learn to use his hind end bettern and improve his self-carriage.

We will have 2 live webinars a month. The first one will introduce the topic with interactive exercises to really understand movement, balance and connection. The second one will give you supportive and non-judgmental individual feedback, support and Q&A. 

You can send in photos and videos of what you have practiced, and get the help you need to take the next step. You will get audios and other support material, so that you can practice at home. You won’t have to be techy for this. Carla will help you with this side too. 🙂

You will also get 1:1 support from Carla in the form of one live video critique session per quarter. And the opportunity to post videos in the closed CB-Riding Facebook group that will be critiqued by Carla.

The international Facebook group is an opportunity to ask questions, get motivation and celebrate successes in a community of like-minded people.

In case you would not want to commit for a half year this online class can be taken in 2 parts – each 3 months long. To sign up for Part 2, you will have to have completed Part 1 first.

This experience is almost priceless. But this special small group program is only $195 per month (That’s 1,170 for 6 months or half of it ($585) for each part.)
