Connection Training Centres

Granada, Spain

Co-founded by Rachel Bedingfield (CT Team) and Claire Waldron (CT Coach).

Cortijo de Segura is a safe haven for positive horse training.
Our horses have been rescued from neglect, abuse or homes where their behaviour made them dangerous to handle. We take them in and rehabilitate them using reward-based training. They become happy, soft and responsive.

Our Centre is based in the beautiful mountains of Andalucia.
You stay in our lovely villa, with its large garden and solar-heated pool. We host many fabulous practitioners for courses and clinics, so you can immerse yourself in deep learning. But being Spain, there is always time for a glass of wine with lunch and a siesta.

We offer:
> Training Courses in Connection Training and other areas, such as bodywork for horses and humans
> Tailor-made Horsey Holidays
> Internships

Terra Nova Equestrian Training Center is proud to be the home of legendary positive reinforcement trainer Shawna Karrasch of Connection Training and On-Target-Training.    

Terra Nova means ‘New Ground.’ Our goal is to bring proven, science-based, Positive Reinforcement Training skills into the mainstream of equestrian pursuits. We recognize positive training as humane best-practice for our horses.

Located in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, Land of Enchantment, we’re the North American base for Connection Training.

Through clinics, residential workshops and lessons, we help riders and trainers reach their goals of communication and partnership with their horses, whether for competition or for everyday enjoyment.

We’re also a full-service boarding and training facility with a focus on dressage and eventing.

We have positive solutions for seemingly intractable problems. This is a safe and non-judgmental environment for guests and students. We meet each person where they are in their equestrian journey.
