Watch this short video to see the journey that led us to Project Proprius, and the answers we were searching for.


Online Learning Experience

Project Proprius is a video-based journey into the latest science of movement. You’ll understand the why behind the unusual training approaches that can restore joyful movement and expression in horses of all levels, types, and ages. Delivered as a three-month course with new content each week, you set the pace for how you access it, and you own the content forever.

Theory + Examples

16 hours of video content includes Chapters (foundation lectures), Activities (examples of how we apply the science with many horses at different levels), and Commentaries (longer sessions working with the horses, with audio commentary from Steinar). Extra learning materials include more than 300+ eBook and worksheet PDF downloads, interactive exercises, quizzes, and “Steinar’s Coffee Breaks”. But remember, our examples are just one of infinite ways to implement the science. Current members are exploring and finding their own creative ideas for applying the principles.

Private Members-only Community

Join your fellow Intrinzeneers in a private community site just for us. No Facebook, no ads, just a 100% dedicated social community site for discussing, sharing, learning, posting homework assignments and ideas, and meeting those who share your passion for enriching the lives of horses. You won’t be alone on this journey. Our early pioneers are already there, discussing ideas, solving problems, and helping support one another.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to learn, and is open to following the science “down the rabbit hole.” It is a twisty and challenging journey. But the path is open to all who are willing.

From beginners to professional trainers, Project Proprius is about your knowledge in modern movement science. What you choose to do with it is up to you. You do not need a horse to participate in the project. Bring your brain. Bring your curiosity. Bring your passion. But the only requirement is an internet connection.

Who should NOT do this?

Anyone looking for a step-by-step training plan or techniques should NOT enroll. There is NO hand-holding, NO prescriptions, NO quick tricks for doing cool things with your horse.

Project Proprius does NOT have recipes for getting your horse to do things. (By the end you’ll know exactly why step-by-step programs don’t work for most horses.) This is about helping YOU become your horse’s coach, mentor, and ally. The first month is almost entirely sitting through lecture and theory videos. We do our best to make the science engaging, clear, and accessible, but we will NOT sugarcoat it to try to sell you: this is about learning modern movement science. The science is not technically hard, but it is profoundly different from virtually all current training methods. You do not have to accept or use it, but you have to be willing to at least hear inconvenient facts. And it takes many weeks before you start seeing “the good stuff.”  

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 to do with a horse. It’s about giving you a foundation to start designing your own path. There is no deadline... no homework that you must do.You set your pace.You decide when (and if) you’ll start working on it with your horses.

Be inspired

It’s not just theory. Let yourself be transported into another world for a few minutes each week, and you’ll find ideas, perspectives, and tools to help you transform your horse to 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.
