Online Courses: Waterhole Rituals


This will be the LAST Live Online Insider Circle Course Ever!!!  Don’t miss it.

The Waterhole Rituals are like colors to an artist, you use them to create the foundational layer for a magnetic bond and connected relationship with your horse.

In the Waterhole Rituals Course you will be studying the true nature and culture of horses. You begin to understand how the Waterhole Rituals relate to a horse’s natural way of communicating in the herd, and then you will learn how to apply the Waterhole Rituals to develop the horse of your dreams in your own philosophy and style. The focus is on safety and empowerment of the students with their horses and themselves.

“I love Carolyn’s methods! Her words really resonate with me. Often when I read what she writes I respond with a “Yes! Exactly!” or I have a major “aha” moment. She is so uncomplicated and refreshing. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to really deepen their relationship with their horse.”
Katherine Radomsky
“I consider Carolyn to be one of pioneers in studying and understanding horse behavior.”
Carol Hopkins
“Carolyn shows amazing calm and intuitive leadership as she builds the connection with her horses and demonstrates a sense of innocence and fun….her skills of interpreting body language and understanding of behaviour are awesome.”

Starting the Journey

The Waterhole Rituals are not a step-by-step method, it is a journey. The first stage of the rituals is to socialize the horse by bringing out desirable behavior during intimate interactions around food. Through Sharing Territory together, you will develop a bond with your horse, and as the bond is growing, you educate your horse in how you want them to behave. It is fun to develop a deep friendship with a horse, and it is really easy to do! Through understanding the Waterhole Rituals you may be pleasantly surprised to discover a universal code of conduct and a way to communicate that naturally creates connection, willingness, and cooperation with your horse AND others.

Starting with an Equine Partner that is Right for You

The most important part of being successful with my method is to pick a horse that is easy to connect with. You want to use a horse that will respond easily to the method so you are SAFE as you work at liberty. Once you get my method under your belt, you can then work with horses that would be a bit more challenging but doable.

What’s included in the Insider Circle 10 week class:

  • Waterhole Rituals Workbook – A downloadable 27 page workbook detailing each of the 7 Waterhole Rituals including an area for you to take notes during the calls.
  • Interview with Anna Twinney – Listen to an introductory talk on the Waterhole Rituals that Carolyn did with Anna Twinney.
  • Five Waterhole Rituals Lessons online over 10 weeks. – Calls are spaced out at 2 weekly intervals to give you a chance to put the coaching into practice. Each call will be a mixture of instruction and question and answer.
  • Can’t make a call? No worries! All calls will be recorded. – You will be given access to all the MP3 audio files so you can download a copy of all the calls for yourself to review. Each call is about 2 hours depending on the number of questions from students.
  • Double Sized Classroom – You will follow along with the Insider Circle Program by listening to each of the calls. In fact, there will be 2 Classes running concurrently, which means there will actually be 10 calls in total for you to listen to and as the previous participants mentioned, you will learn as much listening to other people’s questions and answers as you would if you were actually on the calls yourself.
  • Video Lessons – NEW videos are added with each class just for Insider & Extended Circle students. PLUS access to the library of videos Carolyn made for previous Waterhole Rituals programs. We are very proud of our growing library!
  • Insider Circle Classroom – A special area on the website where you can see each other’s videos along with questions from all your fellow students and Carolyn’s answers.
  • Graduate Circle – Access to the exclusive Waterhole Rituals Insider Circle Club social networking site, where you can post your photos and videos and more importantly get to know graduates from other Insider Circle Programs for future mastermind sessions.
  • BONUS #1 – Question Period & Personal Coaching – MOST IMPORTANT BONUS: personal access to Carolyn Resnick to ask any question you want as you study. As an Insider Circle Student you can ask questions directly to Carolyn after the lesson during the Question & Answer section of each call.
  • BONUS #2 – Video Coaching – As an Insider Circle Student you will be able to submit 20 minutes of video for coaching feedback over the 2 1/2 months of study to Carolyn for PERSONAL COACHING and feedback. (Ideally starting on Week Two ~ 2 videos a week that are 2 min each)

To get this kind of access to Carolyn at any other time would cost $3,000

After the last Class, almost 46% of the participants surveyed said they found the program “priceless”, while a further 53% found it “really helpful” and “extremely beneficial” to them and their horse.

When asked to put an actual $ value on the Class, 54% said it was worth more than $300 and of those 31% said it was worth $450 and 37% said it was worth $750.

Carolyn wants to make sure you can easily afford The Waterhole Rituals Course and so it is available to you at two levels: Insider Circle and Extended Circle.

Some more feedback from previous Programs:
You MUST do it!! The course will change your whole way of thinking about being with horses and probably your whole life.”
The Insider Circle Program was fun, comprehensive, supportive, enlightening, engaging, and thought-provoking. Listening to Carolyn opens one’s eyes, heart and mind — Hearing others’ voices as they expressed their challenges as well as their succeses, ah-ha moments — hearing the diversity of perspectives and horse-human relationships, brings insight into what one’s own self and horses.”
“This must truly be one of the best programmes on offer. The calls together with the questions page and the videos made for excellent coaching stretched over a good period of time. And even though I did not really actively participate with questions, almost all of them were answered through questions by other people. The group gives you a sense of belonging to like minded people and strengthens you in your belief of being on the right track. It was well organised and one always felt looked after, even though I was in the Extended Circle Program. Thank you Carolyn and the rest of the team.”

Carolyn’s Personal Guarantee to you

If you are not delighted with Carolyn and her teaching after the first call and can’t begin to see how the Program will benefit you and your horse, then just let us know and Carolyn will happily refund your money to you. Plus you get to keep all the pre-course material as her way of saying thank you, so you have nothing to lose.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Before signing up for the Course, you should read the pre-requisites, recommendations and notes below to make sure you qualify. If you are not sure or don’t think you qualify please check by emailing our team to discuss. (see more details below)

Should I take the Insider Circle or Extended Circle?

Waterhole Rituals Extended Circle Students receive access to all the print materials, replays of the calls, access to the video library just like the Insider Circle however they will not be able to submit videos for Video Coaching or speak with Carolyn during a lesson call. As an extended circle member you can listen to all weekly calls and post questions to the classroom.



  1. You require the skill to be able to work a horse at liberty, keeping the horse calm and also you should be able to move the horse away from you, whenever you request it.
  2. You have read the book Naked Liberty (Click here to buy now) and watched the Introduction to the Waterhole Rituals DVD (Click here to buy now) – this is very important to prepare you for the course.
  3. You need the ability to read a horse’s intentions so that you can stay safe at all times. You can easily move your horse away from your space.
  4. The horse you decide to work with while learning the Waterhole Rituals should be uncomplicated and you should already be familiar with the horse.
  5. You should be an intermediate equestrian and able to handle most horses with ease.
  6. In the beginning you need to be able to work the horse alone. Later you will be able to develop skills to work with horses in a herd, but we would strongly advise against this while learning the Rituals.
  7. You need to commit to spend a minimum of four hours a week working through the Rituals with your horse and to be happy with whatever connection the horse offers you.


  1. To learn the Waterhole Rituals fully, you will need a secure area of a least 40×60 feet where you can work your horse separately.
  2. You should not expect to be able to Liberty Dance (Ritual 7) with your horse at the end of the course. While many students do in fact develop the skills and connection to achieve this, for many others the process is much slower. You need to progress the course at the pace your horse dictates and do not get concerned if other students are accomplishing more and working on different Rituals than you are. Surrender to the process and extraordinary results will occur when you are not focused on the outcome but what you learn from the process.
  3. Learning the Waterhole Rituals is a long journey, which you must take responsibility for. It is not a Method for creating a quick fix with problem horses. Once you have become skilled in the technique you can then work with more challenging issues.
  4. If you do not have an appropriate horse to learn the Waterhole Rituals with, or indeed if the horse you have selected turns out to be inappropriate, then there is still tremendous value in following the Program from what you will learn from it.
