Problem solving

Do you need help resolving handling problems such as:-

In situations like these, it is important to consider the horse’s natural instinct and then work to redirect their attention. Learning how to solve these problems becomes an opportunity for the horse and rider to regain trust and confidence in each other. When we help a horse to change the way they feel, they naturally change the way that they behave.

During your lessons Anna is very happy to handle or ride your horse to demonstrate an explanation and to give clarity to your horse in what is being asked. Anna also offers the service of continuing this good work if you are away or unable to ride yourself. From ground work to schooling, hacking or jumping your horse at your facility. During these sessions the emphasis is on helping your horse to become more responsive, softer in their response and more confident in their work through having a relaxed state of mind. In the photo above Anna was riding a four year old gelding. This was the fifth time that this young horse had ever been ridden in a bit and about the twenty fifth time that the horse had been ridden in total in his life. All of this horse's training had been done by Anna.
