Bea Borelle is known for training her horses from the basic circus lessons to high school exercises. Through consistent daily training and a playful approach, she teaches her horses to have fun with items that they are normally afraid of.

Clear communication between horse and trainer is the key to successfully master any exercises.

During each exercise, you need to make sure that you use and combine your aids precisely so that your horse understands what is expected.
