Clinic Days

We will start the day with rope handling and training games. These help us with how to train, understanding the nuts and bolts of training, flag up training holes for the handlers and to begin to learn the rope handling that is clicker compatible. Everyone gets involved and is hands on with the morning session.

After lunch we will take our new-found skills to the horses. The afternoon session is also very interactive. Everyone is encouraged to ask questions, say what they are seeing etc. The more discussion we get going the more everyone gets out of the day.

About Amanda

 

For a number of years I have been training with Alexandra Kurland (clicker trainer) and it is what I now teach to others.  Alexandra’s clicker training philosophy is about good balance and understanding the micro movements in both horse and handler that are important.  This work is about teaching balance; physical and emotional in both horse and rider/handler.  Tai Chi features highly to help the handler find good balance and bone rotations to name just 2 things.  

This work is about training for a sound spine and body in both horse and handler.  

Targeting

The detail that Alexandra’s work goes in to surpasses anything else I have seen in other trainers (including horse clicker trainers).  The levels we delve in to are incredible and cover so much more than just ‘training behaviour’.  HOW we get to the end goal is so much more critical than getting to the end goal.  People do not need to be stuck or having problems to delve in to this work and learn incredible detail.  No matter what level each person is at there is always more detail to be teased out that will bring even greater things from the horse and build even stronger relationships with the horses.
