The Relaxed & Forward Barn School

About Me

I'm a life-long horse advocate with a  passion for communication with horses and the people who care about them, working as a trainer, international clinician, and award-winning author. Infinity Farm is home, on the flat, windy, treeless prairie of Colorado, with a multi-species herd of horses, llamas, goats, dogs, and our moral compass, Edgar Rice Burro. nd at annablake.com

Why You Should Join Me

We train with a profound concern for the horse’s mental and physical welfare. We listen to his Calming Signals to learn his perspective.  We affirm the horse’s intelligence, empowering his confidence with positive energy using a combination of calming signals, brain science, and a healthy dose of creativity because horses are art.

A Big Thanks

I huge scoop of gratitude for all who search for the best answer for their horses. Thank you to the members who abandon fear-based training methods and move into an era of understanding and compassion forhorses. Know that all the kind work you do in your barn and in the world has a ripple effect. The horse world is changing for the better every day and you are part of a bigger movement. Hooray for horses. And you!
