Trailer Loading Made Easy and Fun Part 1-2
Most equestrians have struggled with loading a horse into a trailer, or have dealt with horses that travel poorly. Kicking, pawing, backing out quickly, rearing, sitting back, you name it, and usually the solutions to this problem are stressful for both the horse and the human. There's another way though! Learn how to load your horse in a way that is not only effective but low stress, enjoyable, and fun for both horse and human.
Part 1 -Schooling in halt-small movements make big improvements
In this lecture, we will talk about work in halt. How halt in some senses can be viewed as a gait of its own and how I adapt some classical work with flexions and bending in the halt to fit my positive reinforcement procedures. What's important to consider to start and how can we tailor this to our individual horse? I will give you a brief overlooked on my views and thoughts on this exciting topic.
Part 2 -Schooling in halt-mindful movements make big improvements
In this lecture we will talk about different ways of working in the halt using positive reinforcement as our training tool. Searching for balance between motivation and relaxation.
How can we best set our horse up for success and what are the benefits of working in halt is questions well be answering during the lecture. As well as explain how you can start with your own horse and what you will need to think about.

2. Unlocking the Hindquarters - Groundwork & Riding in the Arena
Once you have met your horses' needs and they feel calm, you can now teach your horses to move more athletically. In order to promote free and "through" movement, you must learn the progression of working your horse's shoulders, poll, and hindquarters. Watch this live clinic session and learn how we shape the OTTB mare's balance to enhance "basic posture" (the ability to support the weight of a rider smoothly).
3. Balanced Bend & the Energetic Connection - the Mare Feels Heard
Groundwork is a great opportunity for us to teach horses how to turn off their defensive back muscles and engage their core muscles. The cool part of this work is that, when we help horses soften under pressure and release their tensions, they start to value our input and reach for us to connect with them. Watch this live session for a magical moment in the middle of the clinic when the OTTB mare steps in to connect with Josh.
Setting up for Success – Fighting Fears
Have you ever ridden or worked with a ‘spooky’ horse, one who jumps at his own shadow, is terrified of everything, and tries to run if anything looks different from one day to the next? It’s no fun always being on the lookout for potentially scary things so you can be ready for him to spook. But imagine how much worse it must be for your horse to be living that close to the edge all the time! In this second in the four part series we will see how fear can affect our horses, and what you can do to help your horse build confidence with the things he finds scary.
This is a 2-part clinic on total body control of your horse. In part two, Julie demonstrates the bending aids, and how to control different parts of the horse's body through arcing and counter-arcing.
Creating Calm Self-Carriage in Cross Ties
Self carriage is not just the end result of gymnastic training. It is a state of mind that can be developed in the most basic circumstances and carried over into more advanced work.

Understanding The Hindquarters
Connecting with a New Horse at Liberty (Part 2)
In this real-time training session, Maddy demonstrates the very beginning exercises she uses to connect with a horse at liberty without ropes (within the context of negative reinforcement training). In this session, Maddy demonstrates and walks viewers through the very beginning skills essential for the horse to connect with a human without ropes, including following, leading, steering and more.
Slowing Down a Fast Horse (Part 2)
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.

Your Hands On The Reins Part 2 (Head Elevation and Speed Control)
In Part 2 We will teach the Calm Down Cue and Head Elevation. Both cues are important in your everyday riding and out on the trails. The Calm Down Cue is great for horses that are spooky because now you have a cue to instantly relax your horse and go by whatever he was scared of like it was not even there. The Speed control cue is also great for solving common behavior issues out on the trail like buddy sourness, tail gaiting, and barn sour behavior like you will see in part 3 and 4 of Your hands on the reins but first we must teach these next 2 cues to our horses
Your Hands On The Reins Part 3 - Solving Tail Gating and Buddy Sour Behavior
In part 3 I will show you how to start solving horses that follow to close to the horse in front of them and buddy sour behavior. Each lesson plan is broke down into steps your horse can understand in a calm relaxed manner and give you the tools you need to solve these unwanted behavior issues from the cues you learned in part 1 and 2 of this series of horse training videos.
Your Hands On The Reins - Solving Barn Sour Behavior and Charging Through The Bit

Learning from Crisis
The Corona crisis has turned the whole world upside down. Many people are afraid, because one of our most valuable goods is being taken away from us: our freedom. But as far as horses are concerned, we can use this as a chance and try to better understand how they feel all the time. After all we are depriving them of their freedom constantly. Not only because we confine them, but also because we make all the decisions for them: what food they eat, when and how they are ridden and many more. Maybe the crisis can sensitize us to that fact and motivate us to give something back to our horses. How? Find some inspiration in this video.

Rub me the rite way ...PLEASE! A very effective and easy to learn technique for massaging your horse.
Why would I want to massage my horse, you might ask? This is simple, if they are a athlete, they need it for optimum performance, if they are difficult to catch in the field that changes, they have joined up with you because they appreciate being massaged, and it will connect you to your horse in a way you have not experienced. There is one more, you can use the same techniques on friends, loved ones, farrier, trainer, making their lives better.
Basic placing and fitting techniques, with a little explanation about the saddle tree itself. This video was originally a J.J. Maxwell, (custom saddle maker), presentation. Upon viewing his original video I decided to redo it, as those who did his camera work did a poor job. After making the improvements in my video, J.J. Viewed it and liked it.
For many years we did not have understanding of proper fitting of the saddle or give thought to the conformation of the horse, thus creating conflict, pain and plain ole abuse to our horses. Once you view this video you will have more than just knowledge, you will have both knowledge and understanding, and both you and your horses will have a happier relationship.

The 101 of Equine Communication – Four Pillars to Success
When communicating with horses we tend to almost exclusively rely on the principals of conditioning: we train horses to connect signals (cues, aids, words, sounds etc.) to actions. And even though this is an essential part of communication, it is a very limited one. In the horse-world interaction is quite a bit more complex and flexible than that, which often leaves humans confused and discouraged. But here´s the good news: In this video we will teach you that there are only four basic building blocks you really need to know about, if you want to develop a natural, flexible and effective communication between you and your horse.
4. Stretches and Riding to Increase Soundness - Josh Rides the Mare
When we ride horses in a relational way, it is important that they feel engaged and empowered by the work. In this lesson, Josh describes the difference between "held frame" and "self-carriage" so that we begin to understand why self-carriage helps horses maximize their full potential. Watch this final clinic session with the OTTB to see Josh ride the mare and help her learn how to achieve self-carriage by paying more attention to the seat and leg aids (instead of her face and the reins).
Boundaries with heart
Are you your horses leader?
Part of showing up as a good leader is being someone your horse wants to follow. The other part is setting clear expectations and following through on asks. Riding the fine line between connection and boundaries can be hard and totally dependent on your horses previous experiences and unique personality. In this training we show you how we ride that line of keeping our horses connected and wanting to be with us and follow us whilst not pushing us around or bullying.
Teach your horse to enjoy learning.
Whether you're using positive reinforcement or negative reinforcement the key to your success is how your horse feels. Structuring our training session so that our horse enjoys work and learning keeps them enthusiastic and willing and keeps them from going sour. How you release the pressure of expectation and mark and reward effort is how we influence the release of happy hormones that build positive work ethic. Even if you are using positive reinforcement the withholding of the reward and your horse trying to find the right answer is a form of pressure that can lead to frustration, anger and aggression. Check out this training where we dig into how to set up our training session in a way that fires our horses happy hormones and keep them eager and engaged in learning.
