Horses are fascinating and perceptive creatures. Developing a thorough understanding of how a horse interprets the world around them and deliberately being self-aware as a rider, are the essential skills to a successful and fulfilling partnership. These 3 webinars follows the information in my latest book,The Psychology of Horsemanship. In ‘the old days’ I would have held an evening demonstration, but as that is not an option for the near future, I thought we could meet online.


We will use Zoom, and you will receive an email with a link to join the session in advance. I can send you the information you will need. It is fairly straightforwards, but extra time will be given ahead of the meeting to log on.

There will be no refund of tickets available on cancellation, but they can be transferred to another seminar.

A downloadable pre-recorded version of this seminar are available on the link below if you are unable to watch live. (The live event is not recorded, for your privacy)

The Psychology of Horsemanship Book by Claire Lilley

The Psychology of Horsemanship Book by Claire Lilley

Knowing how the horse functions, and how it responds to us, is essential to working with them in therapy. My experience as a riding coach for over 40 years informs my practice as a psychotherapist, working with equine-assisted therapy and sports psychology. I hope this book unravels some of the intricacies of the human/horse bond.

Featuring over 100 photos and several diagrams, this book explores the application of psychology to the world of horses. From my perspective, this book explores  how horse and rider can benefit from a depth of understanding with each other.

Full of insight and real life examples from my own experience, I  look at  the relationship between horse and rider, and how it impacts on both mental and physical development. With high-quality photographs, diagrams and extended real-life examples, this book explores the application of psychology to the world of horses.
