I still remember the day where my student walked in the barn for her riding lesson and declared that I should start a horse “blog”.
Truth be told, I didn’t know what a blog was at that time, but her excitement for the idea was contagious and I had been looking for ways to give more value to my local riding students between their lessons.
I went home that day, typed into google “what is a blog?” and CRK Training Blog was born.
Fast forward 8 years, 382 weekly videos, and 13.9 million video views later… CRK Training was a global community of riders. and we are still growing… hit play below
While I’ve been the face in the videos, this has never really been about me. I have been honored to have had the opportunity to study with amazing teachers and they have shaped the techniques I use working with horses and students.
With Angelo, I learned how to set up training exercises to trigger the right behavior from the horse so there was never pulling or kicking or fighting to try and create a movement.
With Wendy, I learned how barking instructions at a riding student is simply ineffective, but by showing them a simple movement that creates the feeling of a balanced seat or a stable lower leg, they can remember it forever.
With Patrick, I discovered the ease that helping a horse find balance in their body creates calm in their mind.
With Andrea, I learned how a simple pause can change the attunement between horse and rider.
With Heidi, I learned movements from yoga that transfer right into the saddle to change leaning forward or gripping too tightly.
And with Jenna, our membership community is always reminded to have fun – every step of the way!
Our instructors and our community are really what CRK Training is about, and as our community has grown, we have grown. We are now HorseClass – here to be the best we can for our horses, and of course.. enjoy the ride! 😊 I’m thrilled to have you here
Your new site is gorgeous! I look forward to exploring it and learning with you.

Hi Callie – i’m excited to see more of your new Horse class program. I would love to bring my horse to your farm one day for training. I previously completed your balanced writing class and loved it. My horse Chester still needs some work as my riding skills get better.
Hi Kelly, we would love to have you come to the farm!
Congratulations to the New “HorseClass” I really like it, the site and all the videos. I am only a new rider but the it has been really helpful. And even though I may ride and learn alone, it makes me feel I am not alone. So a big THANKYOU!!!!!!
