This next building block, after Course 1, focuses on developing confidence and unity between horse and rider.

Explore a deeper understanding of prey animal psychology & physiology to uncover how influencing the horse’s bend and balance can create relaxation in movement, both on the ground and riding. 

This is the key to developing an intent-based communication which leads to greater unity with your horse!



  • Focus on the next steps in the Jonathan Field Horsemanship Training Scale™: Bend & Balance on line & riding
  • Learn to use pressure appropriately and read your horse correctly
  • Discover how to “Stretch the elastic band” both emotionally and physically
  • Teach your horse to find relaxation in movement by finding an active neutral 
  • Learn to develop an intent-based communication 
  • Learn to use leg yields and other lateral exercises to improve canter departures, and develop a more comfortable canter to ride.
✴ Each clinic has a different dynamic of people and horses. Some lessons may be focused on more than others, including some not mentioned here. If one of these goals is important to you, please mention so at the beginning of the clinic.
