Resources to Support Your Journey with Horses
For the Equestrian Athlete
The Balance Rider helps you improve core strength and seated balance, increasing comfort and confidence for both the horse and the rider.
Bitless Bridle Resources
Heidi specializes in the use of Bitless Bridles and offers evaluation sessions to see if going “bitless” might be the answer to your troubles. If your horse tosses his head, chomps on the bit, braces against your hands, gets his tongue over the bit, or offers you resistance in the bridle he may be a candidate. Heidi recommends ruling out pain by having a vet, chiropractor, and equine dentist evaluate your horse as the first step in problem solving.
Cathy Drumm is one of the country’s first and premier Western Dressage instructors. Cathy travels extensively to promote and spread the word about this wonderful new discipline.

Centered Riding® was developed by founder Sally Swift as a way of connecting the mind, center and body in riding. It is based on philosophies learned in the Martial Arts and the Alexander Technique. Use of the CR basics helps all riders to use their bodies correctly and more effectively. Horses respond by becoming more responsive, better balanced and more relaxed, allowing them to perform with greater freedom of movement. The techniques of Centered Riding can be applied to any discipline, and will improve your overall comfort, confidence and communication with your horse.

Colic is the number one cause of death in horses. We all know that catching and treating it early can make the difference and help increase the chances of survival. I was introduced to the “SayWhoa” (previously known as StopColic) product a few years ago at a CHA International Conference at the Kentucky Horse Park. I visited the booth, learned about the product, listened to testimonials and decided it was worth the investment. Over the last few years I have successfully used this all natural product on multiple occasions, as have many of my clients. SayWhoa has a 5-year shelf life and is unaffected by the varying temperatures in an unheated barn. I keep a bottle in my barn and in my horse trailer. SayWhoa is available for purchase via my website, my facility and at most of my events. Learn more at Horse Sense Solutions and let’s increase our odds of successful colic outcomes!
