Life is Like a Jigsaw Puzzle

Design your own journey







Equestrian Coaching


Designated the 2012 Horseperson of the Year by the Colorado Horse Council, Gerrie Barnes is known for quality, integrity, professionalism, and leadership in the horse community. Recently she has been awarded the 2016 Riding Instructor of the Year by the Certified Horsemanship Association for her teaching, coaching, and mentoring skills.

With over 20 years of experience in the horse industry, she has owned two horse businesses, given clinics, demonstrations, and presentations. She is a presenter at Horse Expos, horse industry conferences and was a judge for versatility ranch horse competitions. She is a Certified Riding Instructor by the Certified Horsemanship Association and an AQHA Professional Horseman.

New Concepts Consulting is designed to help riders, horse owners, and horse businesses through coaching, consulting, and mentoring with their questions, problems and goals in a professional, knowledgeable capacity.



We’ll work online, video session, Facetime, by phone and text, or meeting – locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally.

New Concepts partners with you to design your own journey by analyzing a problem, situation, or desired outcome and helping provide a useful, effective path. This process is a collaboration between you and New Concepts. Sometimes it just takes one piece of the puzzle to re-direct you toward success. Other times there are a series of steps. But YOU control the outcome.

For the most part I work with small horse businesses, professional instructors, individuals, and recreational riders. I’m not interested in providing you a massive business plan or intricate and confusing riding instructions. My approach is to provide a straightforward, economical bite-size Action Plan. My recommendations are customized to your needs. When you’ve accomplished your plan, you can return and we’ll reassess.
