Horse Training We approach horse training with the same principles we use in human relationships. Building a relationship of trust is foundational in effective horse training. I once read if you use fear to train a horse, there will always be something he fears more than you; but if he trust you, he will come to you when he is afraid. Horses are herd animals and as such look for leadership within the herd. Establishing that you’re a trustworthy leader is vital when asking your horse to do something he would naturally be afraid to do. Like climbing in the saddle the first time or asking him to load in a trailer. Our relationship approach to training has proven most effective with the many horse we have worked with. Most horse/human relationships are one sided. The human feeds, pets and cares for the horse and provides a clean, safe environment. The horse gets all his needs met. But when the human ask something of the horse that he is not used to giving or doesn’t want to give then there is a problem. Horses respond to pressure. Being focused and clear about what you ask of your horse and making sure your horse understands what you’re asking can eliminate a lot of wrecks and make for a more pleasant experience for both rider and horse. Confusion under pressure with a horse can make things go south in a hurry. We have a proven set of principles and methods we use to produce a quiet, sound and responsive horse. This makes for a more enjoyable horse/human relationship. If it doesn’t work for the human it won’t work for the horse; and if it doesn’t work for the horse it won’t work for the human. We’d like the opportunity to work with you and your horse. Please contact us to schedule a consultation. We have limited number of slots available for training.
