Private Sessions With Your Horse
Chris’s work is based on traveling out to meet with people and their horses at their home or stable, and at clinics. His work is a unique blend of horsemanship combined with an understanding of the self-growth and personal insight that naturally accompanies working with horses.
His focus is to help the person and the horse to understand each other and for them to feel good in what they do together. He first likes to meet with the person and discuss where they are at. A lot can be established here as our attitude and intent are very important when moving forward. The way we think can plant the seeds for all that will happen. If we can understand ourselves and get a feel for where we want to go, the mental picture of that can ignite the process.
Then we look at the horse and get a feel for where they are at. The horse’s actions and movements are just the result of how they think and feel, so if we can understand what they are thinking and feeling we can become very understanding of the horse. It is also important to have a knowledge of how a horse naturally lives and moves and how to help them to be healthy, happy, and strong. If the horse understands what we want and feels good about it, and their body is healthy and balanced, they are given every opportunity for success.
In the methods he uses, Chris focuses on the individual and their horse in how they think, feel, and learn. His methods involve a deep and varied array of horsemanship groundwork, plus balance, mindfulness, and energy exercises, as well as a natural way of riding that speaks to all horses. He believes working with a horse is an art with everyone developing their own way that feels natural to them. He also believes the unifying truth in working with people and horses is that we all respond to attention, patience, softness, and understanding. If we can develop a feel for these things in our relationships, as well as a feel for the mechanics of the human body and the horse’s body, we have the beginning of a wonderful foundation in working with horses.
The spiritual and soulful journey involved within a relationship with a horse is also something Chris focuses on. In this he works with meditation, grounding, energy, and intention, as well as creating a safe atmosphere for deep and open-hearted conversation. Whether working with horses or just in the presence of horses, there is much opportunity for inner growth and for our soul to become more peaceful, understanding, and wise.
The person and their horse lead the way with Chris helping and guiding where need be. His main focus is for the session to be safe, fun, and a positive experience for all. Semi-private sessions are also available where two to three people can work together so long as the people and the horses are similar in where they are at.

Private Sessions With Chris and Rocky
Chris also offers private sessions in Pownal, Maine where people of all ages can work with him and his horse, Rocky.
These sessions are not structured around a traditional riding or training lesson. Open to people with or without horse experience, these sessions are a way for people to open up to themselves based on their interaction with horses. From working directly with Rocky to sitting in a field talking with Chris while surrounded by horses, these sessions are all about opening up to where we are at in life. The session kind of paints itself as to what is discussed and where it leads in regards to the work with Rocky. Horses have a way of bringing out our loves and fears, and they also have a way of helping us to understand how we can find balance and a path ahead.
The design of these sessions is to help people better understand animals, nature, the world, and ultimately themselves while in a safe and inspiring setting. Horses are very giving souls and when we open up to them we become very aware of our thinking, our energy, and our choices, and we find that happiness is truly possible in every moment.

Chris is also available to speak at many different types of events. A fun blend of insight, inspiration, and humor, he loves to speak about the topics he is passionate about. Through his work with horses and his work as an author he has been featured at schools, libraries, expos, seminars, fairs and many other motivational speaking engagements.
