It is possible to train your horse to do wonderful, amazing things and have fun at the same time.
We can show you how.
“We” is Trigger (that’s him in the picture), Bella (my little black mare) and me, Jain.
I began teaching my horses to do tricks about 10 years ago. It all started because I had to find something for a very bored horse to do (he was recuperating from an injury).
I soon discovered trick training and found it was an excellent way to keep my smart horse occupied while his wound healed. The added benefits were he became super keen to learn and he really wanted to spend time with me!
I then developed a series of activities that were easy to do, fun and could be incorporated into my daily training. My horse become calmer, more focused on me and our bond became a lot stronger.
I created this website to share these activities with others that want to create a special bond with their horses.

Have fun! 🙂

P.S. Even though all my training is lots of fun, it is still based on the scientific principles of how horses learn. Below is a list of training I have completed. (I consider myself a life-long learner so I will be adding to this list regularly).
