This is a 2 day civilian Confidence and De-spooking Course that will safely bring you and your mount to a whole different level of trust.HAVE A SPOOKEY HORSE? BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THERE IS A CURE
Think of it this way, if Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Warm-bloods, Quarter Horses, Appaloosas, Paints and all kinds of horses can be trained to be police horses, there is no reason your horse can’t be taught the same things. The fact is, training a horse to be “spook proof” is just another training method. Like all other training methods, it requires a working knowledge of techniques used in police training. And, like all training, with enough practice your horse will learn to trust you and “go forward” through whatever you tell them to go through with little or no resistance.
Here is how it works
Number One: Understand the issue. How can you solve a problem when you don’t really know what the problem is? This clinic will give you a comprehensive understanding of your horses’ issues regarding spooking. You will know why they spook, and more importantly, what they are thinking and what triggers their escape mechanisms.
Number Two: Know what to do about it. Once you have an understanding of what is really happening, you will then be trained on how to deal with not only the issues your horse has but other problems in the future with any horse. This clinic will teach you how to build your horse’s confidence in you and most importantly teach the two of you to have trust in each other, and it all begins with understanding.
By the end of the course, horses and riders will ride over teeter-totter bridges, walk through smoke and toward police lights, sirens, handle loud barking dogs, & many other things you may have never thought possible.
Cost will be $350 for both days and includes lunch. Auditors will be $25/day.
Limited space available, so if you are very seriously interested and want to reserve your spot, please email [email protected]
Spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, & will not be held without a 50% non-refundable retainer. ($175)
