Intuitive Horsemanship that's Stress-Free

Greetings and welcome to the Hoofbeat Attunement website! My name is Matney Cook and I offer relationship based horse training, riding lessons and horsemanship coaching that blend a variety of natural horsemanship techniques with Equine Facilitated Learning exercises. This style of horse-human communication creates meaningful interactions that alleviate stress, develop authentic leadership and deepen self confidence in both species simultaneously.

My goal is always to turn out confident horses and horse handlers that communicate fluidly and effectively in a multitude of environments and activities. In doing so, both horse and rider more easily achieve their goals and will not only excel in their chosen field, but will also have a more enjoyable experience all around.

Through my quiet and gentle training methods, I foster communication, trust and respect, the building blocks of a solid foundation.

My credentials include:

    Master Trainer Certification with Ken McNabb 2007
    Certified Instructor of HEAL method 2009
    PATH International Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor 2018
    PATH International Certified Equine Specialist in Mental Health Learning 2019
