30 days to a brand new horse.

I hope everyone is doing ok in these crazy, uncertain times.  Here in Australia, our lockdown phase has been increased and we are currently instructed to remain inside unless heading out for essentials - grocery shopping, medication / medical help, education and exercise

In the meantime, for those of us lucky enough to be able to be working with our horses each day, I figured now was a perfect time to actually set a 30-day goal and be able to stick to it.

If I had a dollar for every time that I said 'do that with your horse for the next 30 days and you would have a brand new horse' Id probably have a little more in the bank right now ;)

In all seriousness, setting a 30-day goal, or a few will help you focus on what you are working on with your horse each day, and give you a 'measuring stick' in regards to progress.   If any of you have seen The Millie Diaries (replays are up on the Facebook page and will be up on the youtube Channel Shortly) you can see how in under 10 minutes per day I was able to take a shy, lacking confident horse who didn't want to be caught, to a horse that caught me, was confident to learn things, and we were able to worm her and do her feet.  In less than 10 minutes per day!  

One thing we need to realise Its the consistency in the training, not the length of the sessions.

So how about you sit down, grab a pen, write out some goals you would like to achieve with your horse, then break them down into smaller chunks, and start working on it!  

Goals could be anything!  It doesnt matter how 'big' or 'small' they may be -

Being Caught
Trailer Loading
And so much more!

Anyone who struggles to break things down, or think about goals, my online Goal setting workshop is perfect for you - and is absolutely free!  To receive the links to the replay, and the workbook just hit reply to this email, 

Now those of you who are quarantined away from your horse, how about you could work on some goals surrounding yourself - fitness, balance, flexibility, knowledge?

Yours for the horse

I am well aware of the need for many people to tighten the purse strings at thise stage, so I am offering training ranging from Free of Charge up to regular clinic costs.  My plan is to continue to share my services to current and new students as follows;

Weekly Article Direct to inbox.  If you are already part of our email news list, you will know that you receive a free weekly article directly to your inbox.  This article can be on a range of topics from training, horse psychology, human psychology, physiology, biomechanics, and any topic that comes to my mind when I'm writing it!  Usually sent out on Mondays - a great kickstart to your week!  Cost: $FREE - Access - Send us your email address.  NOTE - I do post the link to the articles on Facebook but you are not always guaranteed to see it.  I also will occasionally send them as only emails - they will not be publicly posted, so send in your email to receive each one.


Online training Workshops.  Currently Monthly.  Each month I do a live online training workshop to anyone who has joined.  These are held on Facebook, cover a range of topics (see poster for upcoming workshops) and each participant receives a workbook via email.  Cost: $FREE Access - Send us a message!


Wednesday Night LIVE!  WNL is going to make a comeback!  After starting our popular live show as Monday Night Live back in April 2017 - can you BELIEVE they are 3 years old!  We changed to Wednesday Night Live and then at the end of 2019 took a little break.  Due to popular demand, we will be recommencing WNL each week.  Cost: $FREE - Access - on our Facebook Business page - Tanja Kraus Horsemanship.


Online Training Videos.  I have been providing my online training videos since July last year and will continue to upload the content.  The training videos do not follow a particular plan or system - I simply film sessions with my, and clients horses, and share with you either the exercise instruction for what I am doing or the solution to the issue I am trying to solve.  There are over 100 videos which include liberty training, online ground sessions, ridden work, problem-solving, theory classes on psychology and physiology.  I will continue to upload videos to this platform (a minimum of 2 per week, however it is usually 3 - Monday, Wednesday and Friday).   COST - $10 per month USD (I cannot change this to AUD, the platform will not allow it).  Access - Head to to join and get instant access.


Live Courses and schools.  At this stage, the Australian Government has not cancelled outdoor sports.  My instinct in these crazy times is to continue providing these courses with a few variations;  Open to only 6 participants.  Theory component will be filmed and sent via email, as will the workbook.  We will meet only out on the arena, ready to go with our horses.  At lunch, we will practice social distancing.  I think it is important for us to have somewhere to go that is as safe as possible and enjoy something that we love.  This means that our upcoming Bangalow course is fully booked, our foundation clinic is fully booked, and our advancing course is almost booked out.  We will keep in touch should restrictions change. COST - As per clinic posters. Access - Contact us for availability.


Online courses and schools.  I'm going to present online clinics!  Those that are not wanting to attend a live course, but still want to learn the content.  Of course, you won't have the live feedback from me during teaching, but you will receive the workbook, the instructions on the course exercise both on the ground and ridden (video format), and the theory classes.  My expectation of the online courses is that they may be around 3 hours of content - this will include the ground, theory and ridden work on the focal point of the clinic.  Cost: As per registration form.  Access - as per course registration form.

Private Lessons Online.  Private lessons will be provided to a small number of people wanting to get that feedback from me.  You will be able to submit a video of you riding for me to view and offer suggestions and solutions for any challenges you are facing or simply for progress advice.  COST: TBA. Access - please register your interest in this option and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


I'm hoping with this many options that we will not only have a heap of great things to keep us motivated and training and bonding with our horses, but that it will provide a great opportunity for us to really ‘level up’ our, and our horse's skills.

Let me know your thoughts, questions or suggestions
