Reimagine Horsemanship, LLC is an organization dedicated to the practice and promotion of Relationship-Based Horsemanship, and the development of energetic connection with horses.
We study the science and nature of horses and teach people how to use their natural language to communicate with them without resistance.
Our core mission is to educate horses ethically, to teach horsemanship that prioritizes the quality of the relationship, and to continuously explore the depth of the horse-human connection.
Our students learn to align energies with the horse as they establish the trust, respect, and learning processes needed to further the horse's education without damaging the integrity of the relationship.
We show students how energy flows through the body, both in the horses and in ourselves. We then help them practice controlling and coordinating their energy centers through visualization exercises while working with the horses.
During liberty work, the horses offer instant feedback to our internal awareness of these mechanisms, thereby validating how our internal awareness can affect external circumstances.
Our head trainer, Heather Meyer, is an equine behavior consultant who specializes in liberty work, equine psychology, biomechanics, and equine cognitive development. She is available for training, lessons, and behavior consultations throughout the Hudson Valley, online, and at our home wellness center in Poughquag, NY.

REVERENCE FOR THE HORSE
We are ... and always will be ... students of the horse.
We recognize them as individuals and hold a profound respect for their tolerance for mankind. They have more to offer than most people realize, and we resonate deeply with their potential for transforming human lives.
In honor of the horse, we continuously strive to improve our methods, broaden our knowledge-base, and explore the limitless potential of horse-human relationship so that we may offer more of these animals better lives.
Our objective is to enhance the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of horses, offer them a diverse, individualized education, and teach people how to communicate, compromise, and connect with them effectively.
We specialize in equine psychology, liberty work, behavioral rehabilitation, classical dressage, natural horsemanship, and equine cognitive development.
We help horses become better learners and help people build skills and connections that can have a profound effect on their own personal growth and well-being.
Our horsemanship is Relationship-Based ...
... this means we center our work around how the horses perceive us, prioritizing the quality of the overall partnership as we educate them.
The horses in our care are part of our family. We believe that as initiators of the horse-human interaction it's our responsibility to ensure that we are providing horses with the clarity and wellness they need to understand our requests and be successful at their work.
Students learn by observing the individual behaviors and biomechanics of the horses. They build partnership and trust with the horse, learning to control their energy and compulsions so their confidence develops naturally.
We have learned that in order to work with horses without resistance, we need to compromise and meet the horses halfway. They become more cognitive while we expand our awareness.
Our facility is located in Poughquag, NY, but our head trainer, Heather Meyer, travels throughout the Hudson Valley for consultations, clinics, and lessons. Please reach out to see if your farm is along her weekly route or book a mini retreat or introductory session at our wellness center here in Dutchess County.
We also offer online learning options and short-term stays for those of you who are out of our area. Email us for details.
