About Caroline Baldock
Caroline's was a professional flat jockey and has collaboration with Monty Roberts and many other professional horse people over the years. She will explain the values of long reining and the use of voice commands. Visit: carolineshorsetraining.co.uk.
Caroline has spent years riding racehorses and has also ridden in most disciplines. She was literary assistant to Monty Roberts, putting together 3 books for him. The influences in her life are many, but she does not align herself to any one specific method. She calls what she does 'common sense horsemanship'.
'Horses were not put into the world to serve mankind, but that is what they have done. They are not here as stepping-stones for war, or sport or pleasure. They are equals in the journey through life, not to be exploited. We need to understand that they have great intelligence and they can think for themselves and learn at great speed. Many of the horses I deal with have been taught to behave dangerously. I offer to you the possibility of learning how sensitive and intelligent horses are and to get the best out of your horse by giving it time to think and by being gentle.'
