Clicker Training – Cambridgeshire


Clicker Training – Cambridgeshire

 

4 February 2011 (6.30-8.30pm)

Rope Handling Clinic

Venue:  Ickleton Village Hall, Saffron Walden

 

Using human horses, we will delve in to rope handling and take advantage of the verbal feedback to understand how our rope handling feels to the horse, how to use it to communicate better and get a better feel for using the rope effectively as compassionate trainers.

We will also look at micro-riding, which involves finding the releases in our bodies that affect the horse when we are handling or riding them. Again exploring this work with human horses we get verbal feedback that we can use to better helps us understand how our horses are reading our body language and using that as cues for what we ask of them.

The clinic will be indoors, so we will be warm and dry no matter what the weather is doing outside.

5 February 2011

Venue:  Sovereign Quarter Horses, March, Cambridgeshire 

 

We have a wonderful new venue added to the list in Cambridgeshire.  Sovereign Quarter Horses in March, Cambridgeshire is the venue for this clinic. 

With a fabulous indoor arena if the February weather is even slightly inclement we will be lovely and dry.  There are DIY stables for the horses* so you can be sure that they will be comfortable.

There is even a café on site for lunch and refreshments.

We start out day with ground work…without horses.  This is a hugely important part of the day where we explore what our rope handling feels like….what does it feel like to be a horse on the end of our lead rope !  By doing this with human horses we get verbal feedback and so we can instantly explore changes. 

These horseless sessions very often bring massive ‘aha’ moments as to why our horses do something.  What we find is that the human horse actually does the same thing.  These sessions can be very enlightening.

In the afternoon, we take what we learned to the horses.  We work with each horse in turn and if we have time, we can work with the horses more than once.

* a daily DIY livery fee applies

6 February 2011 (9am-12pm) – MicroRiding Clinic

Venue:  Ickleton Village Hall, Saffron Walden, Cambridgeshire

We are really excited to be doing the first microriding clinic in Saffron Walden, Cambs. 

Microriding is a technique pondered by Alexandra Kurland and it is about exploring your body to work out how small movements can speak volumes to your horse.

With microriding we work through a series of ‘releases’ within our bodies that leave you feeling very relaxed.  This is a wonderful way to explore why our horses don’t always halt when we ask, or won’t walk on when we ask….this technique shows up tensions.  Not only does it show up tensions, but it also allows us to find the release that we need to e.g. effectively ask for transitions.

If you would like more details on the lessons or would like to book, please contact me at info@smaarthorses.co.uk.
