My entire life as a horsewoman I have wanted to figure out how to motivate a horse to choose to be with me and to empower it to move in the best way possible. I had no idea how exciting my journey would become once I discovered the right approach.
Karolina Westlund's Animal Emotions and Getting Behavior - the Foundations of Animal Training online courses gave me the scientific background for Positive Reinforcement (Clicker) Training. When I saw a photo of an Intrinzen horse for the first time, I knew I had finally found what I was looking for - a joyful, empowered, brilliant horse. It is very challenging to fundamentally change your training and learn new working methods. But when the horse begins to sparkle and shine you realize that not only the horse has changed, but you yourself, too.
My horse friends have witnessed this change and more and more want to share the journey. I can help you:
communicate safely and effectively, both from the ground and in the saddle. Learn how to “read” a horse and how to communicate with body language, positive reinforcement, and gentle signals.
train a motivated and enthusiastic horse, that moves with agility, strength, and balance in clear communication. To go out into nature with such a horse is the best ride ever.
understand the needs of the special gaited Icelandic horses, including Icelandic-appropriate horse keeping, grooming, feeding, trailering, hoof care, and tack.
