Reg A. Saybrook

Jacob Daffner yoga

Reg has been a horse trainer for over 50 years, beginning at age 12 when he trained the horses on his family’s cattle ranch in North Dakota as well as horses on neighboring ranches.  For the past 35 years, he has been perfecting his own training technique which he calls the “Heart to Heart” approach, through his Double Heart Equine Learning Center.  Much of his technique developed from his study of wild mustang herds which he began doing 35 years ago.

For the past 20 years, Reg has provided training clinics nationally and internationally, to other trainers and equestrians through his “Heart to Heart” clinics. He has provided workshops and clinics to instructors and volunteers at PATH Int’l and RDI (Riding for the Disabled International) therapeutic riding centers in the continental US, Hawaii, Canada, Bermuda and Australia. He has presented workshops on Equine Assisted Psychotherapy at local, state, regional and national conferences.

Reg is certified by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association as an Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Equine Specialist and has served as the equine specialist with a number of mental health professionals. He has also completed the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship Int’l Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning certification workshop and Horsemanship Skills Test in 2012.
