An Event Unlike Any Other

Our vision... to honor and showcase the horse!

“My dream for Heart of the Horse is to showcase the remarkable ability and unlimited magnitude of both horse and trainer.   I want the world to see how inspiring and how positive an impact horses can make on us. They have the innate ability to show us our honest and true selves and have such a way of teaching us, helping us and healing us... I want to share all the ways they make us better and help spread knowledge from those who have mastered  a higher and deeper level of horsemanship . I want to inspire connection so that we can all further our own  journey as  students of the horse.” -- Niki Flundra

“I have attended every year of the Heart of the Horse. What an incredible experience! In comparison to all the other colt starting events I have been to, this is by far the best. It is easy to see that the event is designed with the horse in mind.

I would highly recommend this event!"
