Amanda Martin (BSc, MSc, CAP 2, HAAT) trains extensively with Alexandra Kurland, and internationally renowned clicker training experts, to gain a superior knowledge of Clicker Training Horses and advance her knowledge of Classical Dressage. Amanda is the only Approved Instructor for Alexandra Kurland’s “The Click That Teaches” Clicker Training in the UK.
Her Bachelor´s degree in Physiology has helped Amanda to assess horses from a physiological perspective. Her Master´s Degree in Forensic Science (which requires superior attention to detail), her ever-expanding knowledge of learning theory, equine behavioural training and extensive experience of clicker training animals have all combined her to develop an expert eye for balance and cadence in horses.
Specialising in problem horse behaviours Amanda has had her skills tested to the limits and has managed to help many more horses as a result.
Amanda knows how to teach good balance and cadence through positive training that engages the horse creating a willing and enthusiastic partnership. Applying her dedication to understanding the detail and ability to search for the truth at every level of horsemanship she brings you the best training possible.
What makes Amanda particularly special is far more than can be said on paper. She can help and inspire you, build confidence in horse and handler and so much more.
