Many children are trained to behave a certain way around their horse. To be dominant and controlling. To “show them who’s boss.” To push, pull and coerce.
But this isn’t a positive message for a child to carry through life. And it’s not the way for them to build a long-lasting friendship with their pony.
Forcing a horse to do certain things can make them fearful, untrusting and unsure, which can create a more difficult and frustrating riding experience. It can also cause the horse to act out…and do things like bite, kick or barge.
What if instead your child could:
Your child will learn proven techniques that will help them persuade their pony—without force.
The bite-sized videos feature demos, so your child won’t have to wonder “how do I do *that*?”
Course instructor, Andrea, will be there to answer any questions your child has throughout the course.
Your child can watch the videos whenever and however many times they want.
“ Discovering Callie's website and this Calm and Confident rider course has been a real God-send!”
I am an older rider doing battle with anxiety and loss of confidence. Discovering Callie's website and this Calm and Confident rider course has been a real God-send!
“The Balanced Riding

“I very much enjoyed the course. It fit perfectly with what I'm doing in EGE(Equine Guided Education)”
I very much enjoyed the course. It fit perfectly with what I'm doing in EGE(Equine Guided Education), learning to feel more calm and confident around horses and on them, something that is very important to me so that I can become a more calm and confident person in everyday life.
When Andrea was growing up, she was taught to kick, pull, and shove her horse around. It was all “you must obey, or else…”
One day, that changed. Andrea was training her beloved horse, Archie, when she realized that she had forgotten her rope and training stick. At first it was fine, since Archie had been trained to stay with her.
But suddenly, Archie ran off. At that moment, Andrea realized that she knew nothing about who she had to be to for her horse to want to stay with her. She realized the importance of treating her horses like friends, rather than pieces of sporting equipment.
So Andrea began learning more about horse behavior and body language. She learned how to create two-way friendships based on intimacy and gentleness—rather than one-way relationships based on force and coercion.
After years of study and hosting clinics at her Equine Center and Retreat Company in Costa Rica, Andrea teaches clinics internationally and created the Pure Liberty course for adults in 2019.
With Pure Connection for Kids, Andrea wants to help children set their journeys with horses off on the *right* foot or help experienced kids come back to a friendlier path. Her goal is to teach children how to create a meaningful connection with their horse or pony using skills that will last them a lifetime.

“ Absolutely recommend this course”
I went from confused and intimidated to a forward confident (and forever learning) rider. Best decision.
“I learned so much.”
My confidence soared and I can go back and review when/if needed! I feel my horses and I have bonded tremendously with the positive reinforcement method. They learn so quickly this way. Thank you Callie!
“I found the program incredibly helpful.”
Callie shared a wealth of information in such a pleasant, informal manner. The information was theory based however it was her use of self that kept me engaged. I look forward to having ongoing access to the videos and information.
