We will examine ways to approach horses and respond to them correctly in their own environment of a stall, paddock or turn-out. You will xperience the impact your eyes have and learn how effective they can be to draw a horse to you, gain their attention, alter their speed or invoke a response. You will also overcome catching difficulties, as you discover what motivates your horse, whilst creating an environment where they want to be with you, want to lower their head into the halter and later choose to give their defenses up by lifting their feet and even trotting into the trailer through freedom of choice!
As you work with your horse’s mind, you will learn the use of a pressure halter a way in which to introduce them to obstacles and to allow confidence to build for both of you during groundwork. You will begin to recognize the way horses learn and the benefits this has for your later mount. Free-schooling through body language and ground-driving techniques will be other areas we touch upon. This practice will enhance your timing and pressure/release skills while allowing you to learn to trust your instinct – all of which will lead to harmony between you and your four-legged partner.
