Welcome to the online home of Tomasini Training Center

- Sonoma County, California -

“Teaching horses (and their riders) to move with softness and self carriage by combining Classical Horsemanship with the Western Tradition”.

Known for making fine horses and riders, coach/teacher and clinician Susan Tomasini focuses on her mission of training and riding with a “Soft Feel”. We define Soft Feel as “the Language of Lightness in the conversation between horse and rider”. Her lessons, clinics and training all reflect this pursuit.

Susan, a founding partner of Cowboy Dressage World, has gained a reputation for rapid, effective results based upon her unique communication style and deep knowledge.

All teaching and training is “Purpose Driven”. You will not only learn what to do, and how to do it, but the WHY behind every element and pattern.

Any horse and rider, doing any discipline, will benefit from this training.

Cowboy Dressage is a Specialty. We’re “Taking You Back to the Future of Excellent Horsemanship”!        

Congratulations to Susan on her excellent Open Freestyle at this years Cowboy Dressage Finals. The judge wrote “Difficult test, beautifully done” and gave an incredible score of 92.5 including 10’s for Harmony and Partnership! Here’s the ride:
