Private Sessions With Your Horse
Chris’s work is based on traveling out to meet with people and their horses at their home, stable or 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 it thinks and feels, 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 it to be healthy, happy and strong. If the horse understands what we want and feels good about it, and its body is healthy and strong, it is 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 and lets the process unfold naturally. His methods involve a deep and varied array of horsemanship groundwork, plus balance and energy exercises, along with a natural way of riding that speaks to all horses in all styles of training. 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.
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. He works rain or shine and hot or cold as there are many exercises that can help us that can be done with or without the horse. 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 Durham, 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. 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 within 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. The horse is a very giving soul that changes as the human changes and when we open up to what this teaches us we become very aware of our thinking, our energy and our movement, and we find that happiness is truly possible in every moment.
These sessions paint themselves as far as what is discussed and where they go. Please contact Chris at Info@ChrisLombard.com with any questions regarding a session with him and Rocky and to inquire about availability and pricing.
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.
