The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 66 | Growing presence with Warwick Schiller

Really enjoyed this far-ranging conversation with Warwick Schiller of Warwick Schiller Performance Horsemanship! In this Whole Horse Podcast episode Warwick opened up about his self growth journey over the past four years, what caused such a potent shift (hint: there was a horse or two involved!), what this process has looked like for him, what resources and exercises have been most helpful, how this process has impacted the horses in his world, and where he’s headed next. Hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!

A lifelong equestrian of varying disciplines, Warwick Schiller moved from his home country of Australia in his 20s to the United States in order to pursue his dream of training horses. He focused his competitive efforts on reining, eventually becoming an NRHA (National Reining Horse Association) Reserve World Champion and also representing Australia at the 2010 & 2018 World Equestrian Games. His unique ability to convey his knowledge to others became apparent when he successfully went on to coach individuals who garnered coveted reining titles such as NRHA World Champions, NRHA Rookie of the Year, Australian Champions, U.S. Champions and a fellow WEG team member.
