Service Description

Have you been interested in trying out positive reinforcement, but are unsure where to start? This course is designed to give you the tools and knowledge to successfully start your journey into positive reinforcement training. Positive reinforcement is immensely powerful, and such an incredibly beneficial way to teach. Horses who are taught in this manner become more interactive with people and their environment, give more "try" and enthusiasm in their training and have lower reactivity and fear. Using positive reinforcement also gives us as trainers a whole new way to teach, tasks that were previously unthinkable are now effortless, and "problem behaviours", such as fear of trailering, needle shyness, separation anxiety, trouble catching and unable to stand, become easier to solve. The course is held every Friday for 6 weeks. In it we will discuss: -Safely introducing food rewards to your horse. -How to use food rewards
