CEO • Business Entrepreneur • Researcher • Artist • Horsewoman • Teacher - Lucinda B.
Lucinda learned about horses from her father, Jack, who was an avid, lifelong rider. He taught his daughter both kindness and a profound empathy with all animals.
She learned classical hunter jumper and hunt seat at Flintridge Riding Academy starting at age 5.
After raising a family and running several businesses, she bought a horse and spent 10 years doing "Natural Horsemanship" clinics with a wide range of well-known instructors. Despite her successes, she was sure there was something missing that no one had addressed.
This led her to begin studying Equine Ethology, Neurology and Horse Speak® to help her develop the Equine Mandala and her teaching program. Horse Speak® is the language system we use to listen, and respond, to the horse in all our programs.
She now teaches at BentWire Ranch in Bend, OR.

This goes for the horse as well as the human. Why is the horse bucking , biting, spooking, refusing to leave there friend, not walking over the tarp, wont pick up a certain lead ETC.

The tools that I use to teach/coach are based in the idea that you can learn better by actively doing a
If you and the horse can do a task together you will learn how to move yourself around the horse and the horse will learn how to move around you.
This is based in the idea that you never can leave your horse behind, not even for a moment. I break up the task in little chunks to accommodate for the human learning process so the human can experience the horses World View.
Once this is accomplished then learning anything new, going anywhere together or just enjoying each others company is all there for you to have.
