Wholistic Riding is working with the horse and rider at a level beyond traditional instruction or training.  It is expanded, combined work with both horse and human during in-hand and mounted work. You ride and work together without separation. The rider and horse understand and communicate in 'real time'. "Problem horses", bad behavior from your horse and difficulties you have tried to overcome can be transformed quickly and permanently.


Lessons - Adult - Working with Adults is completely different from effectively teaching children.  Not all instructors teach adults. Deb is an effective, teacher & trainer for adult riders.  She works with riders who own their own horses. Classical Dressage, Jumping, Show Hack, Western Pleasure & Trail for both pleasure riders and competitors. You must own or lease your own horse.

Lessons - Under 18 Years Old   Deb is focused on teaching children, tweens & teens to become amazing equestrians while nurturing their love of horses. She teaches a limited number of students.  All lessons have a focus on safety & fun. With over 20 years experience teaching riders age 3 and up, Deb works with each individual student to learn their goals and their individual learning style. Helping them to reach their fullest potential while having fun. You must own your own horse and the horse must be appropriately trained for your child in order to ride with Deb.

The Nervous Rider  Deb's specialty is working with riders who suffer from anxiety when riding. For over 20 years as a Licensed Riding Instructor Deb has created a program on and off the horse that shifts the rider from Fear, Anxiety and Nervousness to being Confident, Balanced and Relaxed. Whether your fear is is rooted in the memory of a riding accident or is an ongoing feeling of dis-ease that stops you from enjoying riding. Deb will work with you to become the rider you always wanted to be.  The results are fast, proven and permanent! Contact Deb for more information: deb@wholisticriding.com

Equine Training  Deb will train or retrain your horse for you at her private location. Training programs are available for 60, 90 or 120 days.



Deb is absolutely amazing!! I was having so many issues with my horse spooking and my just simply not enjoying riding her despite how much I wanted to. We just could not connect as a team. I spent 4 hours with Deb and my horse Figment. Deb communicated with her to start and made me aware of how my mare was feeling. She taught us to trust each other and listen to each other.... all within our first session. Figment and I had an amazing ride that day and have ridden almost every day since and all rides have been relaxed and fun. She’s a different horse and I really feel that we are in a great place together now. Debs ability to communicate with the horses and help us to understand how they are feeling and how we should communicate with them in return is priceless. I honestly feel she has saved my relationship with both of my horses. I am eternally grateful that I found Deb and plan to take lessons from her and work with her whenever I can!!!

Deb Brosnan has been my daughter’s teacher for the past 4 years.  During this time my daughter not only became a confident rider, but Deb brought out the true horse lover in her.  She came to her as a shy, timid girl, and now has the confidence of a true horsewoman.  I cannot say enough about Deb, she is wonderful to the students. It enriches all of her students both children and adults. She teaches not only the basic lesson plans, she puts great emphasis on barn safety, and the rider’s responsibility for ensuring that they will always be safe. Her lessons go from basic lessons, to learning about breeds, temperaments, health of horses, economics of the horse world etc.


She is such an expert in her field, I would not trust anyone else to teach my daughter. We had been at barns before hers, and this is by far the most outstanding experience my daughter has ever had.


This riding program has allowed my daughter the versatility, to learn English and Western riding specifically, jumping. Deb has such vast knowledge, that she is willing and able to help in any area a child might be interested in.


I would highly recommend Deb Brosnan as a riding instructor to any parent.   Her own love of horses, transposes onto the children, and the end result, is a happy, confident rider.
