Hi. I’m Lauren and if you ever asked yourself: How can I get my horse to do what I’d like NICELY?

…You’re in the RIGHT place!

If you would like to influence and lead people, the same considerations apply. You’re also in the right place.

Horse Sense Leadership gives you that insight.

Horse Sense Leadership gives you that insight.

Horse Sense Leadership and Exceptional Horsemanship aren’t doing what a trainer or instructor says. It’s learning how to know what to do yourself. How to analyze what actually is happening and not only having the tools in your toolbox to remedy the situation, but knowing which tools to use and how to use them.

Lauren is fiercely committed to guiding those wondering what puzzle piece they’re missing to make their dream real. That vision that struggles to keep the confidence when scary things are happening, in business or with a beautiful but also very strong and large animal. We’re here for those who still harbor that dream and would love to discover how to bring it to be.

My path to become an exceptional horseman became clear to me at an early age. Then it grew into Horse Sense Leadership. I realize I’m obsessed and on a self-assigned lifelong mission to save obscure horsemanship concepts from the brink of oblivion and extinction, while at the same time recognizing their brilliance in the business world. I’ve spent 40 years obsessing over the details of my craft. Small, nearly imperceptible things make the difference between victory and defeat.

I was always the Indian riding my palomino Shetland pony bareback with a string tied around his lower jaw. I didn’t want to be the cowboy. I will tell you that I never did get to the point where I could hang on the side while shooting a bow and arrow under the neck of my pony while we were galloping – hmmmm…. Maybe I work on that a little more. But, to be that kind of horseman has always been my goal. Numerous and some very serious injuries have never even come close to diminishing my life’s work. When told I may never be able to use my left leg again… well then, just shoot me now, because that ain’t happening, I said.

What lights me up about this work, is knowing that it’s so do-able. You don’t need to be someone you’re not, just be willing to learn what really works. What sets me apart from other trainers and coaches is my commitment to the right mindset in order to properly approach the client or horse on her terms and the appropriate use of techniques and equipment always with the horse’s and client’s welfare in mind first. And surprisingly enough, this is what creates that dream horse/client that you want anyway.

It’s that easy.

You can feel confident engaging me to guide you and your team or horse to solve these problems and figure out how that applies to people in your life. Over the years my expertise has been finely honed through rigorous study and application with a high priority being humor and fun while instructing and learning. Two books on horsemanship are continuously selling on Amazon and there are more in the pipeline.

Meet Our Horses

PEQUEÑITA (PEKA)

PEQUEÑITA (PEKA)

Would you take that one with you, too?” the owner asked me. I made a face. I was there to see about a throw away (by them) horse for my daughter (Gryffindor is on the cover of my book with her). “No.” I said. “That’s like a large Great Dane.
BLACK DIAMOND

BLACK DIAMOND

I was her last stop before the Alpo can. This girl is the most dangerous horse I’ve ever been around in my life. What did “they” do to her to make her so dangerous? And by dangerous, I mean: She allowed no one near her.
AZABACHE (BACHE)

AZABACHE (BACHE)

She was ten years old and had been kept in a pen for so long her legs hardly held up and sometimes didn’t while she scrambled to bolt away. A jet black Morgan, stunningly beautiful with black eyes, flowing mane and tail and crooked hind legs and strangely shaped hind hooves.

“I love the business of business”

Lauren

Thank you so much for an outstanding day on Monday and for sharing all your expertise and hospitality. My team loved it:

“awesome experience”, “To be able to interact with them and learn about ourselves in the process, was so unique”, “… learn new ways to think about the way we approach customers and people in general. I really enjoyed the day !!!” “I feel like a barrier was definitely discarded. Beautiful animals”.

Mission accomplished I’d say. 😀

Best as always,
John

I’m going to pay more attention to my actions, my intentions behind my actions, standing in my truth. So if there’s something I want, I’m going to have to say it or be clear about it. Otherwise, I’ll never get it.

Kara

People can’t read my mind. So it would be really nice if I could use this so people understand what I’m trying to do without forcing them into it and calling them stubborn because they’re not doing what I want.
