To watch the first class of the Freedom Based Training® Online Course (This is the introductory class offered publicly and free to give you an idea of what the online course is like)



The best option for coaching is to do the online course. During the course you will have unlimited access to one-on-one calls with me, along with weekly live classes and a small interactive group of students working through the theories and practice together. 

The online courses for 2023 are full and I am starting to book students for 2024. 
The online courses for 2024 will run in a format of two six week sessions with a six week break between them. 
The cost is $2500USD. All live classes are recorded and sent to you to keep, all the notes from the courses will be sent to you with the video and audio versions of the class, personal coaching calls can be recorded as well for your library. 


I would like to take a personal journey with you and your horse and help you to forge a deeper bond, without tools, food rewards, or obvious motivators. This is an experience of deep and powerful intrinsic motivation development. 


After I completed the film "Taming Wild", everyone asked, "How can we learn to do this?" 


The best way to learn this work is from your horse over time with coaching on focus and awareness. I have developed a 12 week online course to support you though the process. 


This is a process of developing awareness in you and your horse to an extent that development of skills accidentally occurs as a byproduct of your practice. 


We develop awareness in the relationship by practicing feel and timing in action. 


Feel is knowing what action to take. 

Timing is knowing when to take that action. 


While the horse is your teacher, I am fully available to support you personally throughout the process. 

 Each week will start with an interactive video conference where I will explain the theory behind our process with horses.

At the end of each class I will give everyone the notes and the recordings of the class, as well as:


1. Homework to practice that is appropriate for any level of development.

2. Questions for you to study with your horse to help you know each other more deeply. 

3. An exercise that helps you understand how best to build a strong foundation for skills with your horse.  


I only take a small group of students in each online course so that I can be fully available to everyone. Students can share their progress with me by video, email, in one-on-one consultations, or in the class Facebook group. In any modality that suits your learning style, I am here to support you.


During my year of experimental training with Myrnah in the filming of "Taming Wild", I learned more about horses and about myself than in all my 25 years of prior equine experience. In the years since, I have honed this knowledge to be increasingly accessible to my students and their horses. 


While there are no shortcuts to developing a truly deep bond with your horse, as you put in the time you will find the practice and the process becomes more valuable to you both than the outcomes that inspired you to begin with. 


Have you ever wondered what training would be like without ropes, whips, or food motivation

and what the core concepts underneath all the more traditional training methods are?


Then this course is for you.

"An amazing first day at Elsa Sinclair's freedom based training clinic, with Belle. Changes in horses, including my beautiful girl, in as little as an hour, is mind blowing! Can't wait for tomorrow, and then watching Monday and Tuesday as Elsa introduces work in a herd.
Belle is becoming so much more confident in new environments, easier to read, and more reliable... Elsa's approach is going to help strengthen this... I encourage ANYONE, absolutely ANYONE who loves horses to at least go and spectate a clinic by Elsa!"
