Behavioural training


Undesired horse behaviour can be overwhelming and concerning for many owners, especially without a system in place to find success.
Our system provides you and your horse with the confidence you need to go forward, backwards, left, right and laterally; confidence is knowing you will succeed.

“I want people to know that up-skilling themselves as well as their horse, is an option”

Problem Loaders


Wether you have a problem loader or you are just interested in your horse learning the “easy way” from the beginning we can help.

Screen Shot 2016-04-16 at 2.39.27 pmBefore you in list any professional help ask your self these 3 questions:

  • What will you cue your horse to do?
  • When will you apply pressure?
  • When will your horse get release?

These are the answers you are looking for:

  • Go forward cue
  • Apply pressure when the horse is not touching the float/trailer
  • Release pressure when the horse responds 1% better to the cue

This is our trailer loading principle
Ideally you will not be teaching this cue anywhere near a trailer/float.
For horses that have had a traumatic past experience involving transport, we offer live in trailer training where ground cues are established, and used to overcome a variety of obstacles, eventually overcoming their loading anxieties.

For more information on this training product or for advice on a more specific loading issue contact Lara today.
