Sam developed Alternative Horsemanship based on over 25 years of equine-related experiences as a student, competitor, instructor, and clinician worldwide.
She starts colts, rehabilitates "difficult" horses, and finishes horses for both the show arena and pleasure riding. She works with both competitive and pleasure riders of all levels and backgrounds, horses of a variety of breeds, ages, and disciplines at both a local and national level.
She has lectured, presented, and offered demos at equine symposiums and expos. Sam has taught horsemanship and equine behavior to pre-veterinary students, been a featured speaker on nationally syndicated radio programs, and regularly posts to her award-winning blog, which has been recognized as a top 75 blog in the equestrian community. She also has a regular column in an equine publication and has contributed to several published horsemanship books.
Samantha Harvey offers a variety of clinics worldwide and spends time working abroad with horses in South America, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, and most recently in Asia. She also offers several intensive Equine Retreats each season.
She is the REMOTE HORSE COACH offering both individual and group distance horse training opportunities, Online Horse Courses, Horse Webinars, and LIVE weekly horse coaching videos.
