Horse Training Lessons;

Every time we interact with a horse, we are influencing it, establishing a pattern, for better or worse.  


Every time we walk in a stall or into the pasture, we have an opportunity to "listen" and establish trust. At that point, from the horses eyes, it's all about reinforcers. Learn how to express yourself to the horse with subtle body language, personal energy control and desirable reinforcers, so that you become partners. You can learn how to notice the horse looking to you for direction and asking you questions. You can learn how to shape behaviors the horse offers.


Lessons in horse training are usually an hour. You can present me with a request for a specific problem or let me make an evaluation of where to start. The horse knows how to be a horse, usually we are creating the problem, by an act of omission or by being in the horses way.


Lessons in horse training can be given in many different environments and circumstances.  You can use your horse or mine.

Liberty Work Lessons;

The goal of Liberty Work Lessons is to help you develop a partnership with the horse where the horse chooses to stay with you, mimicking your movements, dancing with you so to speak, without any bridles or tethers. Circling you, moving forward or back, going sideways away and toward, etc. The horse has a choice to engage. It's all about consistent patterning and we can shape any pattern we want so long as we break it down enough for the horse to understand. As in all my work with horses, in Liberty Work Lessons there is no force or coertion. The horse makes a choice to offer a behavior or he doesn't. The burden of clarity and explanation is solely ours.


Liberty Work Lessons can be shared with my horse, at my place to teach you the fundamentals of positive reinforcement.


Liberty Work Lessons can be explored with your horse if you have suitable facilities;

At first, a stall or rectangular space about 40x60' but not more than 70x 135'. Free from other horses interfering or joining in on the fun. Protected contact can be an asset or even a necessity. 

A round pen will do for the first lessons, but eventually will be too small to really allow the horse freedom to think he has a choice.  



JM schedule will post shortly before each clinic
