No Round Pens, no tricks, no quick-fixes but True Liberty & Mindful Training instead

Karine Vandenborre walking in liberty with horse - true connection

My name is Karine Vandenborre

I’m a professional horse trainer and instructor and expert in relational and training problems between horses & humans.

Since I started working with horses professionally when I was 18, I have immersed myself in the behavior of horses and how to communicate with them so that they understand, trust and respect you.

I am known for my horse-friendly handling and training of traumatized horses that have lost their faith in people and because of that exhibit extremely fearful or defensive behavior.

I work with these horses at liberty and in this way, I give them back their self-esteem, self-confidence and trust in humans.

Blaze and I are making great progress. Our relationship is better than ever, and we are enjoying the Liberty journey. I am so grateful to have found this, it was exactly what we needed! Incidentally, I was recently invited to observe a clinic that made me even more grateful, as the clinic was about “Forcefulness”, definitely not Horsefulness! It’s sad to me that dominance and fear-based training are still popular, but I do know many compassionate horse owners and I hope to be a positive influence.

Dear Karine, thank you for all your support which is a big win for me and for thousands of people and horses. It's the answer to the disorientation and all the questionable dogmas which still rule the horse world. I t shows a new, silent, harmonic and deeply fulfilling way to become aware of that what is really important in the relationship with our horse partners. It just makes THE difference.  I am so grateful for all the insights it gave and still gives me.  Thank you so much!
