I’ve noticed a big difference between those who succeed with their horse in a way where they are both happy and those who constantly struggle and seem to always be having issues with their horse…

Every horse training method relies on it

Every person you see doing something fancy with their horse has nailed it

Every time you see a horse and rider together and you think ‘I want what they have!’

They’ve all got one thing in common…


They’ve nailed the *fundamentals*

 

I know, I know, it’s not exciting…

because you think you’re past the fundamentals...

after all you’ve been around horses for a long time, and you’re more advanced than that… (that’s what I used to think too)...

But until you understand that the advanced things are just the fundamentals done to a high quality, you won’t succeed..

So those that succeed have *nailed* the fundamentals of training horses. 

And those that don’t succeed…they don’t even know what the fundamentals are...and as a result, they always feel a bit stuck, lost, or confused with their training, constantly relying on an instructor to tell them what to do, or they jump from program to program looking for that guru who has all the answers (they don't exist- trust me I've already searched high and low!)

 

Even when I help people who have done other methods or have tried some groundwork that they’ve seen on YouTube - they still don’t really know what these fundamentals are and if they are doing them well…

If you have no idea how to do these fundamentals to a high level, or even what they are- you’re missing huge and vital pieces of that 10,000 piece horsemanship jigsaw puzzle.

And until you have these fundamental pieces in place, your overall picture with your horse will not look or feel how you want it to…

Once I implemented these fundamentals with my own horses, everything changed

And now because of these fundamentals, I can do more advanced things, and I can independently problem solve, with confidence in my own decisions. 

It’s why I can quickly assess a horse and rider and work out what the underlying problems are- because usually one or more of the fundamentals is majorly lacking- and the root cause of their horse’s unwanted behaviour.

Just imagine how it would feel to be riding bridleless (spoiler alert- it's the best feeling in the world), leading your horse with no halter or leadrope, lying down with your horse, asking your horse to do something and they actually want to do it.

And even when they don’t, you know how to problem solve your way around it in a way that doesn't force yourself or your horse into situations you don’t like. 

And in case you’re thinking...

it’s not possible for me to do incredible things with my horse… 

I’m not a horsemanship guru who has started thousands of colts or a naturally gifted horsewoman,

I’m just a regular equestrian gal like you…I just found a better way of doing everything with my horses- and have done all the research, put thousands of hours of practice in, studied different "methods", made heaps of mistakes, and discovered what works (and what doesn't) for lots of different types of horses with different problems- so I can guide you to do the same (and help you avoid some of the mistakes I made!)

Not only have I implemented these fundamentals with my own horses, but I’ve taught people in person and online how to really know, understand and implement these fundamentals with their own horses successfully, where they are now achieving their more advanced horse goals.

But to begin with, they were making the mistake of trying to do the fancy stuff first...

but once they went back to the fundamentals they realised what they were missing and doing wrong.

Are you trying to do more advanced things with your horse but it's not working?

There’s one thing separating you between where you are now, and where you want to be...

And it’s how you’re doing these fundamentals.

And I promise, when you get these fundamentals under your belt, the road to the advanced things will be much more clear.

And that is why I made Horsemanship Fundamentals Academy.

Take what you learn in HFA and run with it!

Your life with horses will be changed forever.

Here's what some of my HFA students are saying:

 
 
 
 

Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise

~Michael Jordan

All professionals at the top of their field know that doing more advanced things to a high level requires exceptional discipline and mastering of the fundamentals. The fundamentals are the backbone for everything else that you do. 

Scientists, musicians, artistis, and, yes, equestrians rely upon the most basic skills to perform things that look like magic to the onlooker (but are really just fundamentals done well!)

I have noticed that alot of equestrians not only do not apply these fundamentals, they don't even know what they are...and hence suffer all sorts of problems with their horse (and the horse suffers too...)

If you're ready to go from feeling stuck and confused to finally connecting and communicating with your horse on a deeper level...

 

INTRODUCING...

Before HFA I was struggling to structure my sessions, lacking confidence which in turn was a lack of clear and consistent communication. Missing breaking things down to much smaller steps than I was trying to achieve. I knew there were small holes in my training but I couldn't/ was too scared to work out where they were. I wasn't clear on what support to offer my horse, so I would avoid any situations that could potentially have him over the threshold.

I had a highly 'sensitive' / 'reactive' horse - the thought of rubbing a plastic bag over him would make me want to run and hide, but we were able to achieve this in 1 session using Amalia’s methods.

Now I feel more confident, clear, positive, excited for challenges and motivated. Our connection has grown so much. It feels like a real partnership, like we are speaking the same language. He has become much more confident in himself and in me. 

I love the emphasis on being an advocate for the horses and their perspective and overall happiness. Without this, we couldn't have a light and willing partnership with our horse. Amalia gives you the tools and knowledge to be able to have that really special connection and relationship with your horse.
If you’re thinking about joining HFA, absolutely do it! There will be something to take away from it regardless of where you are at. 

Hi, I'm Amalia πŸ‘‹πŸ» 

(Your Instructor inside Horsemanship Fundamentals Academy)

I was just like any other horse-mad kid that grew up in Australia.

I begged my parents for a pony. I made friends with the girl at school who had horses. I drew horses on everything. I read Horsewyse magazine and every book I could find on horses. And I pretended I was Stevie from the Saddle Club (lol).

I went to pony club, riding club, rode in a paddock, down the beach, on the trail, and in competitions.

I had the worst gear but the best ponies. My horses were my friends. I was back then, and I still do, completely live and breathe horses.

Then as I got older, and competition started getting more serious, I started questioning everything I did with horses. So much so that I sold my dream horse and decided to quit horses altogether!!

After only a year, I realised something large was missing in my life, and I was magnetised back to horses once again. I started questioning my approach to horse training yet again when my two mares, Harriet & Beauty, entered my life as yearlings.

It was then I found the world of natural horsemanship and dove right in. I’m a compulsive learner, and quickly absorbed as much as I could about this way of being with horses. I spent thousands of dollars, and hours studying and learning online, and in lessons and clinics.

Fast forward and I can now say that I have the partnership I've always desired with my horses, and it only continues to develop and blossom. I get to ride my horses in the paddock in a halter, jump bridleless, play at liberty, and also get dressed up and compete in dressage and jumping, all while prioritising partnership with my horse.

I have now helped many horse riders build and improve on their relationship with their horses both in groundwork and riding.

After all, we have horses because we LOVE horses and we want to connect with them and enjoy our time spent together by connecting and communicating in a way we can both enjoy. I want to teach you how to do just that!

BE MY COACH, AMALIA!

Kind words from an HFA student...

🌟Laura & Luna🌟

I'm trying really hard not to turn this into a big long essay. I could go on for hours and hours about all the ways HFA has helped me become a better horsewoman πŸ˜‚

Before I started HFA I was struggling with lots of little quirks Luna had and I was finding it hard to find a way to fix these problems. Any advice I got was generally along the lines of "showing her who's boss" and that just didn't sit with me very well. She's a very gentle mare and is pretty docile so I always felt I was just missing something with her. I have always loved the idea of natural horsemanship but never really found a way into it until now.

 

I loved my time HFA for the unlimited support, motivation and inspiration Amalia gives throughout. She also sets up a wonderful space for all the students to share their progress and generally have good horsey chit chats. I found the coaching calls and been able to ask any horsey question even if it wasn't HFA related so helpful because random issues and questions were always popping up week to week. 

 

Without meaning to sound too wishy washy :P the biggest win for me has been how much my relationship with Luna has grown. Where before she'd kick out and nip me for touching on her girth or belly she now lets me give her a good scratch and she will pick all for feet up now from light touch when before she'd be kicking out quite aggressively. These issues were specific to me but by working through the modules in HFA my problem solving skills improved dramatically and all those smaller issues just started to fade away. There are so many things I'm looking forward to achieving in the future but what I'm really excited about having finished HFA is that everything now feels so achievable and I know how I'm going to reach these goals.

 

So to anyone considering joining HFA DO IT! It is the perfect gateway into natural horsemanship and no matter what your horse experience is, it's a totally new journey. I've been around horses 24 years and I never once felt like I was been told something I already knew. There is so much to gain from this course so absolutely go for it. I also want to add I live in Ireland and Amalia is teaching from Australia and it never felt like we were on opposite sides of the world πŸ˜‚. Amalia is a fantastic coach and a mine of information. My only wish is that I could keep on doing more coaching with her.

Snippets from a message I received from a fellow horse trainer who used HFA with various horses...

Most of us forget the basics and wonder why the specifics don't work.

~Garrison Wynn

Whenever I help a horse and rider who are facing a particular struggle or issue, 9 times out of 10 it is because one of the fundamentals of horsemanship are missing. With HFA you can identify and solve that missing fundamental.

Horsemanship Fundamentals Academy
How do I know if this is for me?

 If you've ended up on this page- you're probably the sort of person who is going to love the Academy.

But this course isn't for everyone...

 

HFA is not for you if...

βœ— You still think the answer is a bigger bit, harsher spurs, a calming supplement etc.

βœ— You have strict rules like never letting your horse in your space or never letting your horse be paddocked with other horses

βœ— You ONLY want to use positive reinforcement (treat training) or you ONLY want to use negative reinforcement (pressure/release). I'm flexible in my approach and I believe 'pressure' used well can be a good thing for the horse.

βœ— You're not interested in taking it slow, you just want to get to the fancy tricks and skip the small stuff.

βœ— You think your horse is naughty and is just out to get you.

 

HFA is for you if...

βœ” You LOVE your horse and you’d do anything for them…like literally anything.

βœ” Your horse is your best friend. You would love nothing more than your horse to be as happy and healthy as possible.

βœ” You're willing to put in the time, effort, and patience to get your dream relationship with your horse

βœ” You're sick of wasting time & money on other solutions that haven't worked

βœ” You're curious and open-minded about a better way of doing things with horses.

βœ” You're worried about doing the wrong thing or messing things up (this is a sign that you actually care about your horse!)

βœ” You're committed to becoming the best horseperson you can be.

βœ” You're ready for a transformation for both you and your horse

 

And if for whatever reason, you get in the Academy and after the completion of the second module you're not happy, please get in touch with me and hopefully, we can sort it out. 

If not, I will provide you a refund- I want you to be happy and I KNOW you'll get results in this course. I hope to see you inside the Academy!

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. The best way is to message me on Instagram @amalia_horses

 

There IS a better way.

Those feelings and doubts you have about traditional or mainstream ways of training- they are there for a reason!

LISTEN to your gut! LISTEN to your horse! They are trying to tell you something!

You know in yourself, deep down, there is a better way.

Allow yourself to learn. Open your mind to new ways. Your horse will thank you.

I NEED THIS & I'M READY!
