Horse Psychology [2 days]

This classroom based 2 day course is designed to teach you how horses think and learn. Without knowing the basics of how horses think, respond to stimuli and store memories how are you going to be able to build a successful training session or even a relationship with your horse? We will cover indepth horse psychology, how their biology and evolution shapes their learning process and how this affects training sessions. There is plenty of oppurtunity to discuss behaviours you have seen in your own or other peoples horses, and how common behaviours seen on yards can develop, and how easy people label horses as "problem" or "difficult" when the horse is behaving as they should under the circumstances. This course can be combined with the other modular courses to count towards the Monty Robert's Introductory Certificate of Horsemanship.

Learn why Monty places traditional  lunging in the top 3 worst pieces of horsemanship and considers longlining one of the greatest skills a trainer can have. Through practical demonstrations, round pen and classroom sessions you will learn this incredibly useful skill. It helps develop correct and balanced movement of the horse and avoids the physical damage often seen with traditional single line lunging...  This course can be combined with the other modular courses to count towards the Monty Robert's Introductory Certificate of Horsemanship.
