Louise Goodling & Bent Post Farm

Louise Goodling


I was born horse crazy and lucky enough to have a pony, Happy,  arrived in my life when I was eight .  In high school, I met my first great equine mentor, Mrs.  White, an incredible horse woman who bred  Appaloosas and took me under her wing. I went on to ride on a collegiate team at Hollins University and on graduation worked professionally as trainer and instructor. In the 90s, with two small boys, I  pulled away from horses professionally to teach elementary school for a few years but horses called me back and I returned to training and teaching in 2007,  when I accepted a position at Sweet Briar College as an instructor and went on to coach at SBC for over a decade, specializing in hunter field riding, Natural Horsemanship, and Equine Facilitated Leadership. In 2018,  I completed  the Epala® apprenticeship program, with Dr. Juli Lynch and began my journey with Equine Partnering.
