Clicker Training Workshops without Horses !

20101009-_MG_0250-682x1024Learn how to train  your horse, what it feels like to be your horse on the end of your lead rope or reins, learn about your horses, balance, about how your horse moves and about your own balance all in a warm room without horses.

These clicker training workshops are a very powerful training tool that can advance your horse training and clicker training skills without even touching a real horse.

Watch your horses learning speed increase massively just by you learning about how you use your own body and how your horse reads that as information !

Rope Handling & Handler Balance Workshops

Knowing how to communicate with our horses is such an integral part of training them.  Do you know if you block their energy, or are sharp on the rope, do you know what it feels like to be your horse on the end of a lead rope ?

In this clinic we work with ´human horses´ and experience rope handling from the horses point of view.  This allows us many advantages; we can freeze frame, play with changes, rewind, slow things down, and most importantly we get real time verbal feedback from our human horse.

PDVD_007 croppedWith permission of Alexandra Kurland, this clinic closely follows Alexandra Kurlands DVD; Clicker Compatible Rope Handling and alllows us to put the theory in to practice.

We will also examine handler balance, what it feels like to be in balance, how that influences the horse and how to test your own balance even when you are working on your own.

If you would like to book on a clinic please check the calendar for dates.  If you do not see a Rope Handling Day in your area please contact us.

Invisible Riding Workshops

PDVD_000With clicker training we are able to shape the horses behaviour in tiny increments (micro-shaping), in fact we can shape them muscle by muscle.  With teaching this level of detail to the horses we also need to consider our own movements.  This is learning to see and feel the smallest try.

Do you know what your body is communicating to your horse ? 
Do you know what your down transition feels like and how to access it ?
Can you release at your poll ? 
Are you riding in harmony with your horse ?

With the invisible riding workshop we exlpore all of this and more.  We break things down in to small details for ourselves and find the micro movements that our horses are reading.  With permission of Alexandra Kurland, the clinic follows the Microriding DVD.

If you would like to book on a clinic please check the calendar for dates.  If you do not see an Invisible Riding Workshop in your area please contact us.

Single Rein Riding Workshop

PDVD_001This workshop takes the rope handling, the handler balance, the rider balance and body awareness and puts it all together to teach you how to use that for riding.  We practice Single Rein Riding to help us really become aware of what each rein does, how it does that and when to ask for it.

If you would like to book on a clinic please check the calendar for dates.  If you do not see a Single Rein Riding Workshop in your area please contact us.
