Ground Manners/Dually Halter [2 days]

*Everything you do with your horse is at its core a leading exercise.. standing still to be mounted, trotting up for the vet, walking to the fields, loading into a trailer, or even follow the digger! They’re all connected, and will also affect riding behaviour & confidence

Over 2 days you will learn invaluable tools that will have a dramatic impact on your horse’s behaviour and how to achieve your training goals in a way the horse understands & gains confidence from.

  • 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 boundaries 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.
  • Learn how 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.
  • How to structure your training for a better more successful outcome when dealing with common issues (Clipping, Farrier, Vet, Stable vices and much more!) Everything is a “leading” exercise..
