We build on communication, respect & trust
Discipline, respect and fear can in the eyes of an amateur look very similar, though the truth is: those factors could not be further apart from eachother.
In order to establish rules the horse has to learn respect, but in order to earn the horses respect I will have to show him that he can trust me. Those two go hand in hand.
Only a horse that feels calm and safe can open up for learning new things and process new information.
" If the horse doesn´t understand your question then you´ve either asked the wrong question or you´ve presented it the wrong way "
in aproximately one months time I will teach Your horse everything it needs to know to become a stable and confident working partner.
I put a lot of focus on the basics - the most important part of building anything is a good and strong foundation.
We build on respect, trust and communication!
After roughly 4 weeks Your horse will be used to all handling from the ground, moving front, hind etc. Your horse will be desensitized to all kinds of things, it will trailer load without issues, be able to stand tied calmly and it will be confident in the work we do.
Your horse will be able to be ridden in all gaits, it will know haunches in and shoulders in in the walk (and oftentimes also trot), it will be doing turns on the front and turns on the haunches, trot in small circles, ride figure eights with nice transitions and it will be able to be backed up.
Sometimes a horse might have a some baggage that we need to work with. In that case we will have a consultation and build an individual training plan so we will be able to help You and Your horse overcome issues and develop in the areas that need some extra attention.
I use the knowledge that the horses have taught me during my years as a trainer and the experience I´ve gained from working with a lot of different kinds of horses
- I listen to the horse and see what it needs from me to be able and move forward in its progress and training.
I can normally already see after a couple of days how many weeks of training a horse will need.
I also work as a farrier, though my list of customers is currently full if Your horses needs farrier work to be done during its stay at our ranch I will be happy to personally take care of that.
