Understanding how to make small changes in the horse and rider can have a profound effect on harmony and ease of movement.
Here are some examples;
Clipper phobic horses can display various behaviours including pulling away, barging, biting, rearing, kicking or striking out. Before my training some required veterinary sedation to be clipped. I work by gaining the trust of the horse and reading their body language so that I only progress at a pace the horse is comfortable with.
It's important that horses stand still for mounting as not doing so can easily lead to accidents. One of the horses below had not stood still at the block in 4 years of ownership. The owner is still thrilled that she stands still everytime after 1 half an hour training session.
I love working with youngsters to set them up for a positive future.
Helping horses and riders of any ages!
Using psychology and other techniques I can help the owner build confidence in their horse.
I have worked with many horses who would not go near a hosepipe, let alone be washed with one. After working with them all were happy to be hosed down.
I have worked with horses who reared, bolted, planted or took many hours to load. Afterwards they were happily loading and sometimes went up the ramp quicker than the owner!
Confidence building exercises and psychology to help horses (and their riders!) become braver out and about.
