All The Tools You Need Are In Your Library
Getting your horse happy and healthy, and becoming the good horse trainer you're meant to be requires clarity, confidence, vision, and the ability to take action on a consistent basis using the right strategies.
Without a roadmap and STep-by-STep guidance, the process can be confusing.
Our primary goal is to help you to think, act, and interact like an all-round horse trainer, so you have skills that serve you for life.
You get access to a set of 20 Modules, and to avoid overwhelm, we serve these to you in bite-sized chunks in the form of monthly Mastery lessons, so you know exactly where to start and what to do next.
You get new how-to videos unlocked on the first day of the month. Then, every month, you'll get a new set of resources - this way, you never get the feeling of 'falling behind'.
Through the program you will master:
Create a rock solid basis
Get a reliable foundation and a clear action plan to take the training with your horse to new heights.
Unravel the magic of half-halts
Know exactly when, where, why, and how to use mental, energetic, voice, seat, leg, and rein aids.

Join the ST Academy To Help Your Horse - And Make A Measurable Difference To Other Horses And Donkeys Too!
When you invest in your success through the Scholars Membership, you're not only helping your own horse, but you're also helping other horses in need.
We believe that animals need to be treated with respect, love, and care. And this is especially the case for the more than 100 million working horses, donkeys, and mules who provide invaluable support to the daily lives of an estimated 600 million people in some of the poorest places in the world through transportation and production. Healthy working horses, donkeys, and mules help to put food on their tables, send their children to school, and build better futures for themselves and their families.
Our goal is not only to help you make a positive change for your horse but also to make a positive difference for horses, donkeys, and mules in need. That's why a portion of profits from our company go directly to non-profit organizations that support horses, donkeys, and mules in need.
How Far Can We Go
We believe in a bright future and our ability to build it together.
Together Is Better
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
