Would you like to learn how best to train your horse?

Horse owners are constantly bombarded with marketing messages from a wide variety of horse trainers promoting their ‘method’ of training horses. But how can you assess whether these methods are effective or suitable for you and your horse? 

Equine behaviourist Justine Harrison will guide you through this minefield by teaching you how horses learn and the principles of training so that you can make informed decisions for yourself.  In a combination of classroom and practical sessions with horses you will learn about effective handling and training techniques. You will benefit from an improved understanding of how your own horse learns and gain new practical skills to help train your horse effectively.

This one day workshop will include presentations and practical exercises with horses, including:

  • The principles of training

  • Why different techniques may or may not work

  • The effects different training methods have on the horse

  • How to create the best environment for your horse to learn

  • How to assess your horse’s emotional thresholds

  • Training using LIMA (Least Invasive, Minimally Aversive) principles

  • What makes a great trainer

  • How to make training fun for you and your horse

  • Retraining your horse to enjoy a fearful task (eg. clippers, vaccinations, saddle)

  • When to stop training

This workshop is aimed at horse owners, students and equestrian professionals interested in learning more about training and how it affects the horse.

CPD attendance certificates will be available, please email Justine if you would like one.
