Charlotte Cannon is a person constantly striving to find the best way to build rapport, understanding and communication to excel with the horse. Her goal is to develop a easy to follow, simple system, that allows more horses and their humans to build mutually beneficial, satisfying relationships to reach levels of performance and success they never imagined possible.


She has literally pulled information from all over the world, numerous disciplines and modalities to develop her program. It is something completely unique and effective, that preserves the dignity of both the horse and human while yielding incredible results!

Fox Point Farm

In her Basic Relaxation and Confidence Building Clinics,


Charlotte has 5 Goals, 8 Concepts and 6 Techniques. 


She teaches, starting in the barn and proceeds to the ring.

 

She fully explains the concepts and techniques, before adding horses, so students really understand all the material before playing and practicing. 


She helps each student, one on one as needed, so their horse and they can grasp and perform each technique.


Everything Charlotte presents can be broken down super simple, and can have varying levels of difficulty to adapt to each student and their horse.


All teaching is done in a positive, encouraging, enthusiastic manner. This is about becoming a great puzzle solver and developing confidence in yourself and your horse.


Horses of all ages and levels, as well as humans of all ages and levels, will benefit from these concepts and techniques. This spans across breed and discipline too.


Detailed handout for participants and auditors.


Numbers of participants are limited. Auditors are always encouraged.
