Committed to Connection - Online Coaching Program


The response we’ve received from participants is outstanding as this program has supercharged their progress by providing individualized guidance, feedback, and a safe supportive community of like-minded horse owners with a heart for the horse. 


How it works.


  • You will receive one module per week complete with videos, pictures, a bit of optional reading, fun exercises and monthly challenges. 
  • You are encouraged to post videos or questions on the private Facebook group at any time to show case your progress and receive feedback from both Melissa as well as the other amazing students in the group.
  • You are invited to join a monthly group call. The call is audio/visually recorded for those who can’t attend. This is an invaluable learning experience for us all. We enjoy the opportunity to see how others succeed, improve our eye to training subtleties and enjoy community on our journey. 
  • We are excited about the prospect of having you join the Committed to Connection Program and the Compassionate Horse Click Facebook group!


Virtual and Live Lessons


Enjoy a customized lesson program that starts with an introductory session. In this one hour assessment, we review the horse's history, current whole life situation, and riding and/or training goals and discuss a comprehensive questionnaire filled out prior to the lesson. With this in-depth knowledge of the horse and rider's relationship, we create a simple plan that makes it easy for the horse owner to positively succeed with their training. Lesson packages are available to provide continuing guidance, feedback and support as horse owners follow a clear path of shaping behaviors leading to the horse of their dreams.
