Horse Training

 
Our training methods focus on looking at things through the horse’s eyes. There is no such thing as “bad” behaviour. When a horse reacts a certain way, he is giving us information – it is up to us to interpret it and change our behaviour to ensure that we are getting the results we want. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The picture to the left is Kai's first swim - she may not have been sure, but she trusted Taylor to follow her in. There was no forcing - it was not about being scarier than the water. It was about being the leader, and a horse will always follow a leader they trust.
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
Taylor uses a combination of training styles and quickly adapts to what your horse needs. She is not afraid to think outside the box, and is always trying to understand what the horse is thinking and feeling as they work together. Before looking at behavioural issues, she explores possible physical causes to the behaviour – poor saddle fit, sore back or joints, bad teeth, soft mouth or any other number of possibilities. You would be amazed at how many runaways can be “cured” by switching to a Nurtural Bitless Bridle.
 
 

 
 
 
 

 
     
$675.00/mth includes board, and at least 3 training sessions per week and one lesson with the owner to teach them how to communicate with the horse using Taylor’s methods.
