Welcome to Conscious Horse, Conscious Rider

Did you know that horses are some of the greatest facilitators on the planet?

The beauty of being with a horse is they pick up on the state of mind you are in at all times. They desire you to have all of you, and they are better behaved when you are being you!

There is a communion that we can create with horses, that has nothing to do with if you own a horse or ride a horse, but can contribute to you being with and handling horses with more ease, have a greater relationship with and ability to be close to and understand horses and what they require, and of course to become a better rider, too.

Conscious Horse Conscious Rider is an invitation to have a deeper connection with horses, to change what isn't working for you and your horse, or any horse you come into contact with, and to a deeper connection with you through the contribution of these amazing animals.

There is a level of consciousness that the horses have, where they can give to us in a way that we haven’t even begun to imagine, something far greater than anything that anyone has ever been able to speak about.

Upcoming Classes and Events




I didn’t go searching for Access Consciousness. I didn’t find a class online, get an enthusiastic referral, or go to a bars class with a friend. I live in a small town 30 minutes south of Dallas, TX, called Cedar Hill, and Access came to me about a year ago.

A friend emailed me a flyer one day with no Point of View at all. Just – “Hey, this is right down the street from you. I have no idea what it’s about. I’m not going, but I thought you might wanna take a look.”

I have been around horses my whole entire life and I am sure that this isn’t the first life time that I have had the honor of their presence.
The summer of 2015, Hanne Stiggard travelled from Denmark to my home in Alberta, Canada to facilitate the amazing CHCR class. As the host I made sure that there were many horses at the class for Hanne and the rest of the participant’s to play with for the two day class...


The Space of Peace


Christmas is around the corner and I can recall the times when I desperately desired to get a certain present which never ended up under the tree for me. Nowadays I can buy myself my own present and how often do we actually let ourselves have that ‘silly’ present we truly desire? Or do we come up with reasons and justifications to why we should not have it?
Like a horse! That is a big present. But what true gift could it be to you? For me it is the demand to be present.
