This two-day clinic is geared towards horse owners with young horses and those horse owners who would like to learn how to improve their horses' ground manners and build a positive relationship based on mutual trust and respect.
Participants will learn the differences between predator and prey behaviour, learn to understand how horses think and why they react the way they do, get insight into hor...se psychology and equine body language, and learn how to speak the language of the horse themselves.
Participants will also learn about the different types of horses (passive, passive-aggressive, aggressive) and how to communicate with each type.
You will learn about various groundwork exercises such as in-hand leading, round penning, lungeing, and long-lining.
Depending on the horses and participants, we will also be working with trail obstacles, handling behaviour problems such as biting, spookiness, aggression at feeding times, difficult to catch, difficult to trailer load, difficult to handle feet, not standing for mounting, not standing for fly spraying, head shyness, difficult to bridle, etc.
Develop a positive relationship with your horse based on mutual trust and respect by understanding how your horse perceives the world.
Learn how to set boundaries and how to be assertive without being aggressive.
Learn how to help timid horses become more confident and how to get pushy horses to respect your space.
This clinic doesn't involve any riding.
