Kristina Millar has over 25 years of experience training, teaching and riding. She has successfully started countless horses under saddle, introduced many more to driving training, trick training, jumping and ponying and has solved an endless number of behavioral issues for her client's throughout her career.

Kristina trains based on the Natural Horsemanship philosophy.  Horses are a social herd animal with a highly developed communication system based primarily on body language. The basis of Natural Horsemanship is to use body language along with pressure and release techniques to communicate with the horse in order to achieve the desired results. 

Kristina has worked extensively with Marion Weisskopff, an experienced Natural Horsemanship trainer and clinician to achieve the necessary technique and experience to be a successful trainer.

Kristina has assisted many clients reach their goals in training their horses. She has a gentle touch, firm expectations when needed, and possesses the extreme patience necessary when dealing with horses. She will assist you in understanding the process and steps necessary to get you and your horse to where you want to be.

Training can be done on-site as we have access to a year-round sand footing ring. From Sooke to the Saanich Peninsula, Kristina will also make barn calls if you wish to have your horse trained at home. Kristina also has regular clients in the Cobble Hill, Duncan, Ladysmith and Nanaimo areas so do not hesitate to inquire on services outside the Greater Victoria area.

She has begun putting on regular Natural Horsemanship clinic's in Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo and Denman Island. Please stay tuned for upcoming dates.

If you need a colt started, help on a specific problem, or would like some help getting your horse to a higher standard, please call or e-mail us to assist you with your training needs.
