When working with any horse, regardless of breed, age, or discipline, our primary goal is to use science based training and total awareness of the whole horse, focusing on positive reinforcement. We establish the basics of handling, relaxation, and manners through a patient and positive step by step building system before graduating on to more advanced work.
All behavioral problems are addressed with a positive and scientific approach, first considering the possibility of underlying pain causes, the goal being to fully rehabilitate the horse rather than to suppress behaviors through force and aversive training methods.
Training through fear may temporarily fix the problem but at what cost? Here at The Willing Equine we aren't willing to sacrifice the horse's well being and mental state for quick results. Instead our the goal is to develop a deeper understanding and stronger partnerships between horse and handler. ---www.thewillingequine.com
