 Partnership and Confidence Building Horsemanship

Thank you for your interest in Katherine Barbarite of Whispering Hooves, LLC®.  Katherine has spent the better part of the last two decades living and studying the horse. She has sought out the most difficult horses, the ones who have lost their way, the ones others have given up on. In almost all cases she has been able to bring them back by using this remarkably effective System. This logical set of straight forward exercises immediately puts the horse and rider on a higher ground of safe, gentle communication. Instead of riding and handling in fear, suddenly both parties are building a secure structure and a new-found confidence, followed by dramatically heightened safety. Safety is everything! Most importantly YOU can do this. Literally thousands of horsemen and women are truly Discovering Horses They Never Knew. If you are taken with the simplicity and logic of these exercises, then consider doing you and your horse a great justice and join our expanding rank of evolved horse people. Below you will find registration information, an overview of our program and info on fees. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
