The Whole Horse Podcast with Alexa Linton

Jan 12, 2023

This beautiful conversation with Tara Davis of Unbridled Goddess may require tissues! We covered much territory, from her ever-deepening work with positive reinforcement training and it's roots with her mare Misa, her deep commitment to creating a haven for her horses where all physical needs are met before moving forward and why she believes in a free-choice forage, her work with the Balance through Movement Method and how it's supporting her horses, and the passing of her much beloved stallion, and her powerful and very moving way of honouring him and his legacy.

At Unbridled Goddess, Tara immerses herself in the teachings of the Herd, sharing the timeless wisdom of the Horse.  Weaving together lessons from science and spirituality, hers is a unique horsemanship approach with the purpose of empowering both horse and human.  Tara believes that opening our awareness to the possibilities of a more conscious and consensual relationship with our horses reflects in our interpersonal relationships – as well as our relationships with ourselves.

Tara supports the unique connection between each horse and human through her 20+ years of experience in the equine industry, background in dressage, and education in holistic horse care practices.  In her training, Tara combines principles of classical dressage with a focus on biomechanics and the inner drive of the horse to achieve harmonious, healthy lifelong partnerships.  Her teachings are based heavily in positive reinforcement, with an adherence to LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) protocols, and incorporate the development of mindful awareness in riders.
