Do you wish your horse would come to you whenever you want?

Difficulty catching your horse is a common problem for many horse owners.  This can be especially challenging if the horse is distracted, anxious or in a different environment.

In this webinar equine trainer and behaviour consultant Trudi Dempsey explains why horses may be difficult to catch, and how you can train your horse to reliably come back to you, time after time.

You will learn how to:

• Understand reasons that horses might not want to be caught/recall

• Recognise and interpret body language around catching and recall

• Build trust through positive interactions

• Train a behaviour from start to finish

• Break down your training goal into achievable steps

• Develop patterns that change unwanted behaviour

• Apply basic learning theory in training

• Harness the power of association

• Progress to different environments

• Train around distractions

• Use advanced applications like ‘head up’ from grazing

• Set yourself and your horse up to succeed

• Problem solve

After the presentation, Trudi answered questions from the audience.

This presentation is for horse owners, students, equine professionals interested in horse training and behaviour.

Once enrolled you have 60 days to watch this recording.
