Why Softness Training?

Why  Softness Training?
Hi!  My name is Monica, known to many as The Softness Training Coach.  

Softness in Horses is my favorite subject and I am passionate about helping people and horses become the best partner they can be for each other.  That is why I created The Softness Training Programme: to be able to share my knowledge and experience with as many people as I can all over the world via my on-line courses and distant coaching.

I have been involved with horse for over 40 years and experienced  all the highs and lows that being around horses for that long can bring.  I have followed many masters, learnt many lessons, made thousands of mistakes, fallen in many potholes.   I have searched for answers in many places, studied many courses and observed many horses, too!  

Softness Training is about looking at our horse for the answers.  About reading their body language and responding accordingly.  About working with our horse's thoughts, as well as with their body.  It is also about looking at ourselves... about being soft with ourselves.  

Over the years, I have helped hundreds of competition riders, amateur horse owners, horse sharers, riding school riders, once-a-week riders and holiday makers on their "bucket list" horse experiences become better partners for their horses.   Some of these people were after creating a special connection with their horses. Others wanted help with creating softness in the work they do with their horses to improve performance. Others yet,  wanted help understanding their horses better,  or to loose their fear and improve confidence.

Time and time again I have found that the softer our initial approach is to the horse each time we meet him (whether in the field or in his stable), the softer and more connected the whole session for that day is.  The horse is more relaxed and connected, more willing, more open to interacting with us and, as an added bonus, safer to be around!

There is so much I would like to share with you to help you create that partnership we all dream of with our horse.  As a  first step, I would like to invite you to join my free 8-Day Challenge: "The Soft Approach" and send you my free "Connection Checklist".  This will be a good way for you to get to know me and see if Softness Training is something you would like to include in your everyday dealing with your horse.

This is where it starts.... at the very beginning!

I look forward to hearing from you!

In the meantime time,

Happy Connecting!
The Softness Training Coach

Is this 8 Day Challenge for you?

You will find this 8 Day Connection Challenge useful if: 

  • you would like to improve the  relationship and partnership you have with your horse
  • your horse ignores you, looks away or walks away from you when you approach him in the field
  • it is difficult to approach your horse and put a headcollar on
  • sometimes your horse threatens to bite or kick when you are close to him
  • your horse turns his bum at you in "ANY" situation (other than asking for a scratch!)
  • it seems that your horse is absent even if standing still letting you put the headcollar on
  • your horse is more interested in what is going on around him than in you

OR.... the best reason:

  • everything is really good and you just want to make it even better!

R. Cunningham, Spain:

"My horse Napoleon is a difficult horse. He lacks confidence, shuts down and can be very nervous in certain situations. Working (with Monica) has helped us develop confidence in each other and also form a true partnership. I had not ridden him for a year and have owned him of 2 years. I can not thank you enough, Monica. I never thought I could have such a happy boy under saddle".

Belinda Bass, Australia:

"...Following this course has certainly taught me to slow down and listen to my horses and take the time to connect rather that rush in and assume she was happy to do what I expected or asked. My connection with Xena has grown much stronger as I new take the time to connect and read her body language from the moment I walk towards her."

Wendy Price, England:

As a horse owner for over 50 years, I have experienced many trainings.... I was absolutely delighted to discover that Monica's Softness Training was able to take my relationship with Rosie even further. Whilst the subtleties are simple to implement, the results are profound!

Jenn Wagstaff, Australia:

."... I have seen a huge change in myself and even had a compliment from a friend on how I have softened myself. I am teaching differently, too. I am reading the horse more and seeing when they want to be with us and when they are saying "no, not today". With this beautiful approach, I am witnessing a change in horses within 5 minutes of being with them."

I would love to hear from you and let you know what is going on at Softness Training.
