Western Horsemanship with Katie McAlister emphasizes teaching and developing skill, clear communication, and partnership in any discipline or level between rider and horse.
In the videos included below, you will see imperfect horses building confidence, and key components to their foundation, as well as how Katie handles ‘less than ideal” situations with grace and gentle correction. Some of these horses are young, some old, and have varying athletic skill, training duration, and personalities. To discuss any one of these videos, and the philosophy behind it, simply ask!
