A Relational Horsemanship Case Study - The OTTB Mare - 4 Part Series

Part 1: Lightness vs Softness - Groundwork & Riding in the Round Pen   

We often value "light" responses from our horses when they respond quickly to aids and cues.  However, a "light" response becomes problematic when horses move their bodies quickly but hold onto tension mentally and internally.  A "soft" response occurs when a horse relaxes internally and feels okay about what is happening; therefore, I want my horses to be light and responsive after they soften and feel at peace internally.  Watch this live clinic session where we start to help the OTTB mare soften internally and make a mental change!

Maddy Shambaugh

Slowing Down a Fast Horse 

In this real-time training session, Maddy works with a roping horse who seems to be stuck in high gear! What can we do to help our horses relax when they seem to be stuck with the gas pedal on? Most people ride the brakes, making the situation worse as the brakes wear out (and your horse becomes less sensitive to the pressure of the bridle) and the horse's anxiety increases without a relief of pressure. In this session, Maddy uses something called the "Passenger Exercise" to help this horse relax, manage his energy, and find a natural rhythm without micromanagement from the rider.

PHASING & PHRASING - How to Use Strategic Intention (and less pressure) to Communicate Clearly with Any Horse 

Unlock new levels of lightness and clear communication when you learn this 5th Agreement of the foundation of my method - A Somatic Approach to Horsemanship™.

Even with a horse who is feeling playful or 'naughty' you will be able to use less pressure and preserve your relationship using this strategy, while encouraging horses to take on more responsibility from the first day of training. Even when things don't go perfectly, you will notice that horses are becoming magnetized to you when you 'speak' to them in this way!

Giving Horses a Voice 

Horses constantly try to talk to their humans. Unfortunately they are often misunderstood or not even heard at all. Considering the horses´ effort to communicate with us, that is very sad and makes a mutual understanding rather difficult. In this video, we take a closer look at how we can translate the horses' words. Giving horses the voice they deserve is easier than you might think. It starts by giving them a simple choice of two words: “Yes” and “No”. Over time that will develop into more words, whole sentences and beautiful stories. Enjoy our important insights on this exciting topic.

Setting up for Success – Before you Start 

We all want to be successful with our horses, but the success we strive for can be elusive. In this first part of a four part series we will look at the things which can make success less likely before you even start your training session. Sometimes they are easy to recognise, but some are much more subtle, and can affect our horses in a variety of different ways. We will see real life examples of how things went wrong, and also look at how we can address the problems to get ourselves, and our horses, back on the road to success. 

Katie Boniface 

Tailoring your training session to your horse individual personality 

Horse training isn't a one size fits all approach. There are many factors that affect how well your horse responds to your training method. The way that you handle an arab is different to a draft horse, different to an off the track thoroughbred and different to a percheron. Within the different breeds our horses also have their on level of sensitivity and how they deal with stress. In this training we discuss how to pick what your horse looks like when emotionally balanced and what area to focus on to get a stronger relationship and deal with difficult behaviours.
