Welcome to The Softness Training Programme!
The Softness Training Programme was born from my passion to help people transform the relationship and partnership they have with their horses so they can go and enjoy whatever it is they like to do with them in a safe, fun way for all parties involved: both Horse and Human!
Going through the program will give you skills that help you connect with your horse and read him intimately. It is a course that focuses on the development of emotional and physical softness in the horse by looking at Connection, Feel and Timing.
The course material is delivered to you in six installments over the course of 7 months (February to August 2019). You will also be invited to send videos for feedback and interact with other students via a closed Facebook Group.
Every month, for the duration of the course (6 months) there is a Group Coaching Call where you can have your questions answered live and interact with other students of the course.
What it covers:
“I believe a soft horses are a happy horses, and I can’t wait to help you make sure your horse is happy, too.”
This is what some of Softness Training Students are saying... more at www.softnesstraining.com
Your Subscription to this course includes:
You can expect to spend about 30 minutes looking through the learning material of each lesson. How much time you spend with your horse after that, will depend on your personal circumstances. For maximum progression and palpable results I recommend at least 3 sessions a week with your horse. However, if this is not possible - it doesn't matter! You just take the time it takes...and you can always have more than one session during a single visit!
Please note that you need to have access to the internet to watch the videos and a facebook account so you can join the Facebook Group for feedback and coaching.
Thank you again for joining me. I am committed to giving you all the support I can towards creating that dream partnership with your horse.
See you in Class! In the meantime,

Brought up in Caracas, Venezuela, Monica developed her love of horses in a natural, free and spontaneous environment of the family’s weekend home in rustic countryside. She went on to study Veterinary Medicine at University for three years before leaving to start her family. The love of horses never left her, nor did the desire to find the most compassionate and effective way to care for them and to train them.
With family grown up, Monica went back to the equine world, qualifying as a Riding Instructor in Germany and an Equine Body Worker in the UK, where she also competed successfully in affiliated dressage and eventing. Monica's next career stop was to represent an Australian horsemanship program in the UK, a role that took her to Australia various times to study horses. This was followed by complementing her coaching skill by qualifying as an EFL Coach.
With her broad spectrum of life and experiences, her love of horses and passion to find the best way to work with them, Monica has created and now runs her own Softness Training Programme, helping people to learn how to read their horses, connect with them and create trusting partnerships.
Monica lives in Andalucía, Spain with her partner Ian, running Finca Las Posadas, home to a very happy herd of 15 horses. From there, she offers Riding Holidays and teaches her Softness Training Program. She also travels to teach and does online coaching. . You can find out more about her work by visiting Softness Training and The Pony Academy , the website of her very special riding school in Surrey, dedicated to teaching soft horsemanship and sharing the joy of ponies with children from the age of 4.
