I believe that all of us can help our horses access their athletic potential and get out of pain.
I believe that we can and should participate in the process of protecting our health and well-being.
I believe that we can learn to understand ourselves better, so that we can invite and create the kind of relationships we dream of having.
I know that we can perform very high quality work even as beginners, if we can just get out of our own way, and get our bodies and our energy to comply with our intention and requests…

Alissa’s cumulative study and work in the fields of Classical Horse & Rider Training and Hanna Somatics have provided her with a passionate goal:
– PREVENTION –
The sciences of Somatics (physiology) Classical Dressage (progressive athletic development) and Natural Horsemanship (behavior) have informed and influenced the way Alissa teaches riding and trains horses. Her lessons foster a logical and holistic approach to developing sound horses and happy humans, in a partnership based on mutual trust, safety, healthy posture and movement, clear communication and the ultimate connection.
By using A Somatic Approach to Horsemanship™ (ASATH) we can prevent many of the training, behavioral and physical issues I get regularly called in as a professional to address. When I teach my students to follow the guidelines of A Somatic Approach to Horsemanship, they can look at their horses through my eyes, through my teachers’ eyes, and be empowered to do the best for and by these beloved and noble creatures. – Alissa
