About Dr. Worden & Sean Jobin
“The overall goal when coaching an athlete, including horses, is to light a fire in them,” Dr Worden explains. “Put them in a position where they enjoy their job and want to do it well. Once we figure out how to make a horse happy and willing to perform, then we pour kerosene on that fire. We build the confidence, make sure they always have positive experiences, and then the horse will really fly.”
