At Kataluna Horsemanship, our founder and trainer, Katie Berman, utilizes a combination of mostly Liberty with some Natural Horsemanship training methods. We encourage happy horses by using clicker-based positive reinforcement to give them the freedom of choice whether they want to participate and engage. This builds a deeper connection between the horse and human and increases confidence and self-esteem.
We offer lessons for students at all levels that include intro to liberty, riding, basic ground manners, trick training, and rehabilitation for neglected horses. Rates noted below are for 60 minute lessons. To see availability for lessons please contact us!

Katie takes all levels of riders however focuses on more beginner and intermediate stages. Focus on lessons can be as flexible as the student would like with what we learn!
