As I work through training my young horse, educating myself on Behavioural Analysis, Learning Theory, studying with some of the worlds leaders in those fields and as I take others through positive reinforcement training with their horses and dogs, I want to share with you the ups and downs, the training solutions we find and the journey taken through the training.
The training I use has its roots firmly in equine behaviour, behavioural analysis, a solid understanding of learning and the applications of, not so much positive reinforcement training, but FEAR FREE training.
If my horse is not understanding what I have asked then the first place I have to look for the change is within what I am doing; the horses are always right.
I hope you enjoy the diary. Feel free to ask questions, comment, share your own experiences and more.
