Artfully empowered horses

 

Intrinzen is a way of working with horses to restore their natural, intrinsic motivation for proud, fluid, agile movement.

Intrinzen combines art and science to help every horse become better at what the horse wants to be: a horse. 

We use the principles of exercise physiology, motivation science, and neuroscience in a specific, unique way to develop a horse that is intrinsically motivated to “dance” in true self-carriage. Not for us, but for himself. And all of the wonderful experiences we have the horse — from ground work to riding — are the beautiful, organic side-effect of helping the horse develop autonomy, mastery, and purpose through powerful postures and movements.

It is not the path for everyone.

We invite you to explore Intrinzen, and perhaps you will find answers to questions your horse has been asking.

As of November 2016, we are no longer offering a step-by-step program of what we do. Instead, we’re building a completely new course that will empower you to design your own program.  It was not consistent with our values to promote and teach about empowering horses, while not empowering the humans. We are done with formulas and rules and programs. And if you’re as tired as we are of the struggle to follow someone else’s program (however well-designed), then maybe it’s time for you to design your own. We are putting the finishing touches at Intrinzen Learning on a radically new, science-based approach to helping you build the expertise to design your own program. Whatever your riding discipline, personal goals, and training approach, we want to help you build the knowledge and skills professionals use to make decisions about your horses that work for your horse, without always being forced to depend on someone else — including us — to help you figure out how to help your horse. We’ll teach you the all of the same varied, little-known, new (and sometimes counter-intuitive) science that WE used to design the program WE do with our horses. Our mission to enable you to help develop a horse that's truly intrinsically motivated to carry himself with power and joy. 

Welcome.

Intrinzen is for those who seek an engaging path to empowering the horse.

Intrinzen is a philosophy, and can be practiced by any human and any horse, without any special guidance. But for those who wish to learn more about the science behind Intrinzen, we will be releasing our flagship course soon. Look for details and registration beginning December 2016. We don’t yet know the ways in which Intrinzen will evolve, but our goal is to help smooth the path for those who may be struggling alone, as we once were. Your horse is worth it.

You’re worth it.
