Lucinda B started learning about horses at a very young age. Her father Jack was an avid rider and taught her kindness and a profound empathy with all animals.  

She learn classical hunter jumper and hunt seat at Flintridge Riding Academy starting at age 5. Her subsequent study of Early Childhood Education taught her the value of observation and patience.

After raising a family she bought a horse and spent 10 years of "Natural Horsemanship" clinics. Her experience with these clinics convinced her that "there just HAD to be more to it". This led her to begin studying Neuroscience and Equine Ethology- how the brain learns, works out emotions, and how the brain and central nervous system play a role in these processes.

Lucinda B now teaches Horse Speak®- the basis of equine natural language.

Lucinda B describes her work as helping people form true partnerships with their horses through direct and honest communication.

"My hope is for you to be the best you can be with your horse."
