Carla has been a horse lover and rider all her life.
Holding her Master’s Degree in Economics in hand, 29 years ago, Carla decided to go back to her childhood dream of working with horses and riders.
She’s had countless hours in riding horses and training students since, and thousands of hours studying firsthand in world renowned programs such as Sally Swift’s Centered Riding® and The Classical German Training System.
What deepens Carla’s teachings and sets her apart is her level of expertise in meditation, personal development and mindfulness training. She is a certified meditation and yoga practitioner, leading and facilitating worldwide.
This unique combination and expertise led her to create The Intuitive Rider.
She helps riders from all over the world to be more balanced, safer and more connected in the saddle, and also deeply work on the emotional and mental side of being a horse person. She teaches online and in person from her home in California, USA.
Lungeing and in-hand work has been a big part of her work. When she found Babette’s work, it was a perfect fit.
Babette’s step-by-step teaching style makes it easy for students to follow the process and safely continue the work by themselves. The changes in the communication between horse and rider are amazing.
Carla says: “I believe firmly that every horse and every rider should learn these principles of healthy biomechanics. The horses would stay healthier for longer, and the riders would really understand what kind of movement they are looking for when in the saddle.
I feel truly fortunate that I can teach this work and spread the word.“
