I am Julie Robins and I understand the ups and downs of working with horses.

Chances are that I have been where you are with your horse, particularly if you are experiencing frustration, overwhelm or lack of an idea of how to progress.  I came to horses as an adult, seemingly learning everything the hard way!

I have dealt with it all... bolting, bucking, biting, kicking, and bad behaviors in my own horses before I found a way to build a true partnership.

I thought fear, frustration, overwhelm, and injury were just part of "life with horses".  "Toughen up!," they said!  I tried...

Today, I pride myself on teaching others the way I wish I had been taught using a system that explains the why behind the what and works with the nature of the horse. I created The Horsemanship Academy in 2005 to educate, empower and inspire others.

I would love to help you rebuild your confidence, solve challenging problems, recharge your relationship with your horse, and take your ground work, liberty work, and riding to the next level.

What clients are saying...

Julie is the most intuitive and well-rounded horse person I know. She has helped my wife, Shelley Onderdonk, DVM, and myself with dozens of our horses at all different stages, from foal handling to starting horses under tack to improving playing horses.  Julie has a great ability to communicate and share her insights and knowledge.  She is a genuine talent!

I am forever grateful to have met and worked with Julie.  My mare went from aggressive, grumpy, pulling on the bit, not listening, and jigging on the trail to soft, light, easy to handle and ride both in the arena and on the trail.  Julie has empowered me to shift my relationship with Lakota from stressful and difficult to delightful and fun!  She is gifted not only with horses but also in communicating, educating, and empowering people.

It's not easy to find a clinician/educator who has the appropriate hands-on field experience to compliment an educational background, but that does exist with Julie Robins!  She brings her deep passion and years of extraordinary experience with horses to both her in person and online work. I highly recommend her work and know you will be amazed with what YOU learn, regardless of your equine experience.
