Ground Manners (2 days)
Over 2 days you will learn invaluable tools that will have a dramatic impact on your horse’s ground maners and make you the effective leader that your horse needs. You will learn how very common owner “bad habits” and “bad timing” lead to many problems seen in horses, which can quickly escalate into much more serious/dangerous horse behaviour. If you own, or have ever worked with a horses that barges/kicks/bites/rears/won’t load into a trailer or lorry/is scared or of nervous disposition then this course is for you to find out why they behave the way they do!
You will learn about and how to use the Dually Halter correctly, and how to establish clear rules and boundries for your horse. Begin to “read” your horse so you can spot potential issues before they escalate, this will help you gain confidence whether you are on the ground or in the saddle. The more a horse trusts you on the ground, the more trust and respect he will have for you when you are in the saddle.
