A Client Story

 "What drew me to Dr. Nadine’s work is the way her horses LOVE TO BE WITH HER.

Most trainers I see in person and online have animals in a state of learned helplessness. Although they obey, they lack any playfulness and spark in their soul. They appear listless and machine-like.

Nadine is one of the few trainers that has found a way to PRESERVE the horse’s playful spirit rather than suppress it on the journey to make them a ridable horse.

Of those few I have found, most of them have an air of mystery and “horse whisperer” aura about them that make them difficult to understand. Their methods have a haze of mythology around them that, although is certainly intriguing and something to learn from, makes it difficult to derive a technical method which you can apply at home to your own animals.

Nadine’s course [The Essence of Liberty Online Academy] neither is dressed in pretty verbal distractions or based on making the horse do something by depriving of them of any other options. Her psychological and physiological knowledge of the horse, common training methods, and how she introduces us to the method from this background knowledge, leaves no holes for ambiguity.

Nadine has no “tricks”, “magic tools”, “magic words”, or “quick fixes”. It’s all very real, bare and scientific, allowing you to clearly see what’s happening and why she does it while introducing this new training approach to the three new horses featured in the course.

Dr. Nadine’s social media, full of her adult horses performing difficult Haute Ecole elements while also playing like foals with her, is a testament that her method does work.

Most excitedly, in the barely two months I’ve been applying Dr. Nadine’s material to my own horses, I’ve seen the beginning of this vivacious in my own horses!

When the course ended, I was not left without many ideas on how to pursue my own unique endeavors using the material learned in the course. If you want a horse that engages in play with you, a TRULY EQUAL partner where both parties can walk away when they feel uncomfortable (yes, including the horse), and a dream relationship most believe to be impossible, and seemingly so few have obtained, Nadine’s course will definitely give you something to add in your horse training repertoire on that journey.

Thank you so much Nadine for your hard work in creating a course that are helping me shape my lifelong equine dreams!"

Philosophy & Approach

Nadine's philosophy and approach revolves around establishing a strong connection between horse and human, and providing the horse with choice and autonomy. Horses are incredibly peaceful creatures and will always search for the path of least resistance and, therefore, it is (in most cases) easy to coerce a horse into obedience. However, in these situations the horse will often lack the beautiful expression, motivation, play and power that comes with freedom of choice. Nadine incorporates trick training as a tool to enhance communication and improve the relationship. She also incorporates "power postures" and collected movements to help the horse find more confidence, balance and strength! The communication relies on slow, gentle (non-escalating or forceful) guidance, always giving the horse time to think and the option to leave. Rewards (positive reinforcement) are used to help motivate the horse to follow and search through the guidance!

Nadine's approach is largely science-based with a focus on the psychology of the equine brain and autonomic nervous system, as well as evidence-based herd dynamics. She does not incorporate dominance theory into her training as horses do not understand the concept of authority or superiority. Understanding the similarities and differences between horse and human minds and emotions has a massive impact on the way we interpret their behaviour and how we then respond to that behaviour. It is crucial to understand why something does or doesn't work and what evidence there is behind it in order to ensure that we choose the most appropriate and ethical approach to training and caring for our horses!
