Online Learning Experience

Project Proprius is a self-study video-based journey into the latest science of movement and motivation. It is the result of a two-year project / experiment with a radically different approach to helping horses rediscover the intrinsic joy of movement.

Theory + Examples

30+ hours of video content. Our examples are just one of infinite ways to implement the science. Once you purchase the course, you own access to the content forever.

There are no deadlines or schedules. It’s your journey. 

Who is it for?

Anyone open to learning, and willing to follow the science “down the rabbit hole.” It is a twisty and challenging journey. But the path is open to all.

Whether you’re a beginner or professional, novice or expert, Project Proprius is about building your knowledge in modern movement science. You do not need a horse to participate in the project. 

Who should NOT do this?

Anyone looking for a step-by-step training plan or specific techniques. There are NO recipes, NO prescriptions, NO simple answers. This is not a method! If you are already happy with your current approach, we do NOT recommend taking this course. The science theories behind Intrinzen are radically different — sometimes opposite — to a more traditional and/or classical approach. The science principles on which Project Proprius is based are NOT compatible with most current approaches to physical training of horses.

Project Proprius is about you evolving your knowledge and skills as the horse’s coach, mentor, and ally. This is NOT about quick fixes. The project is almost entirely lecture and theory videos. We do our best to make the science engaging, clear, and accessible, but  this is mostly about you learning modern movement science

This is a self-guided journey. 
We do not currently offer personal feedback.

We do NOT have a Facebook group.
We do have more than 1,000 participants in the course finding one another both online and in real-life, exploring their own creative ideas and engaging with the philosophy and science.

The goal of the project is to empower horses, their humans, and the community.

Relax and learn

You have nothing to worry about. There is nothing you need to do except learn. This is not a step-by-step program. There is no deadline... nothing that you must do. You set your pace.

Be inspired

It’s not just theory. Let yourself be transported into another world for an hour each week, and you’ll find ideas, perspectives, and tools that can help transform your horse into the incredible, amazing creature you know the horse was born to be.


Be Empowered

Project Proprius is NOT a prescription. It is not about the "right" way to work with horses. This project is to help you create your own path. Project Proprius is about your mastery of the remarkable science that’s been missing from virtually every approach to horsemanship.
