About Alissa

Alissa is the Co-Instructor of the EHS Professional Training Program, an International Clinician, and the Creator of A Somatic Approach to Horsemanship™.

The sciences of Somatics (physiology + movement) Classical Dressage (progressive athletic development) and Natural Horsemanship (horse behavior) have informed and influenced the way Alissa teaches riding, handles and trains horses. Her sessions foster a logical and holistic approach to developing sound horses and happy humans, in a partnership based on mutual trust, safety, healthy posture and movement, clear communication and building the ultimate connection.

A Lifetime Student of the Horse, I am endlessly grateful to my most esteemed colleagues and furry professors – the horses in my life – from Marco the Mini, to Toby (the formerly “evil" pony), to the larger equines in my daily life: Jedi my appendix thoroughbred and Master of Sensitivity, and of course Doc A’Nalu, my warmblood/quarter horse cross who waited so patiently for me to learn to offer him a more sophisticated conversation. And all the rest! Keep ’em coming. Much Love!
