While we are growing as a business and a family, I have realized that I need to have a systematic, standard way of teaching that is consistent with how I want my Method taught to the public. This is to make sure that anything that is stated as “The Carolyn Resnick Method” is truly taught with my blessing, my knowledge and is taught the way I want it to be, with as much safety and integrity as possible.
My Method has grown organically over the years and many of my old trainers did not keep up with their training or take continued education classes with me, as required to keep their certification current. Continued education classes included learning new techniques, new exercises, new lessons and updated programs for the way I want my Method to be taught. Continued education is needed to keep the trainers up to date in the same way teachers, insurance agents, real estate brokers or psychologists need to keep their licenses current.
So that meant there were allot of different versions of information being taught under the guise of “The Carolyn Resnick Method” that were different than what I was teaching myself. There was also old, outdated information being taught that should no longer be used. Because of this, I un-certified all of my trainers in order to retrain them and have everything consistent and be able to give my students the correct, most updated information in my Method. This is why I started my Academy to teach the most updated information and to have a systematic, standard way of teaching my Certified Trainers.
I also want to mention that Stina Herberg, a previous certified trainer, is no longer part of the Academy and she is no longer authorized to offer programs in my Method. The Carolyn Resnick Method is not affiliated or associated, nor ever has been associated with the Humana People to People Organization.
The First person that I certified in the most updated version of my Method was Linda Salinas from Gastonia, North Carolina. She is a fabulous trainer and she continues learning from me to stay on top of all the latest techniques. She is having a clinic in North Carolina this May, 2014 which I highly recommend you attend if you want to begin a new journey with your horse, build a stronger connection, or are looking for a better way to get a higher level of performance from your horse in a kinder, gentler way. See her flyer below for her May clinic.
I would also like to announce that the second person I have certified in the most updated version of my Method is Teddie Ziegler. Teddie has just received her certification this past Sunday, March16th. Teddie has been my assistant, my student, my apprentice and my protégé for many years and is now my newest Certified Trainer. I feel very confident in her abilities to teach my Method and to be a safe and an enjoyable teacher to learn from. She will be teaching private lessons and clinics here at my Ranch in Escondido as well as traveling, if requested, to give clinics and lessons.
Their contact information is listed below. However, we will be setting up all clinics centrally from the Academy. So, if you are interested in setting up a clinic near you, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will set one up with Linda or herself.

In my Certification programs there is a standard of knowledge or understanding that I have of my method in how to teach it. Liberty training needs to be approached with care and is not a program for a beginning horseman. Working with a horse at Liberty takes more skill and is more dangerous than with tack.
When learning from one of my Certified Trainers, take the information that you learn that makes complete sense to you to use in your daily practice in whatever discipline you are currently working in, i.e. jumping, dressage, hunt, etc… Do not practice my method without understanding how to stay safe.
I consider my Method at Liberty an advanced ground training for experienced horsemen and women. This Method will grow the bond and relationship with your horse to a level that will take your current work, on the ground or riding, to a new level of performance and love.
It can also be used as a simple tool to just start the relationship with your horse, new or old, into a true heart felt connection where magic is found and love abounds. Once your horse “really” looks at you, deep into your heart and you can do the same, nothing will ever be the same.
If you would like to visit the Ranch as a Working Student click below for more information.
Have a great weekend! Be on the lookout for new horse and human sightings and may the horse be with you.
